THE final countdown is on to this year’s Enniskillen 10K Road Race and Leisure Walk which takes place this Saturday, 10 June.
The race will start at the Lakeland Forum at 2pm sharp and all participants are encouraged to be at the start line in good time.
Motorists are advised to expect some traffic delays along the 10k route which brings participants from the Forum through Enniskillen to the Castle Coole estate.
On leaving the estate, competitors will make their way around the Killyhevlin Industrial Estate and move on to the Ardhowen Hill, Derrychara playing fields and the Millennium foot bridge over the River Erne to cross the finish line back at the Forum.
The race carries a total prize fund of £1,500 prize fund and further spot prizes on the day. This year, the event has been accorded additional prestige as it has been included within the Novosco Grand Prix Series. T
Free children’s entertainment, including face painting and bouncy castles, begins on the day at 11am. The children’s fun run, suitable for age groups between pre-school and Primary 7, takes place on the grass playing fields beside Enniskillen Castle and will commence at 12 noon.
Meanwhile, the Lisnaskea Community 10K Run, Couch to 5K and 3K Birdie Walk for Under 11s is on
Saturday week, 17 June. Registration opens at 10am with £12 entrance fee and race starts at 12 noon.
Over 300 competitors took part in the event last year and organisers are hoping for a good turnout again this year. Groups can walk if they wish, but for the more competitive there is chipped timing across the six age categories. There will be music and food provided and prize giving will take place in Castle Park following the event. You can register online www.upperlougherneregion.com or at McBrien Newsagent, Main Street, Lisnaskea.
