We are very excited to announce our 2019 collectable medal!! Maynooth Post Primary school was founded in 1971 and will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2021. The 10k/5k will begin this celebration this year by organizing a 3-year lead-in set of collectable medals, kindly sponsored by Pearls Dental.

The 2019 Maynooth 10k + 5k will take place on Sunday 7th April at 10.30am. The fast and flat Maynooth 10K + 5K is very popular with runners of all abilities. With its scenic route through St. Patrick’s College and Carton House Hotel, chip timing by Pop Up Races, accurate course measurement and professional organization, the event has gone from strength to strength in the last 9 years.

The 10k and 5k will start at 10.30am with warm-ups at 10.15am. The courses are the same as last year with the 10K starting in St Patrick’s College and the 5K on Convent lane, with synchronized start times there will be no interference between the two races. Walkers and Joggers are very welcome in the 5K so get training and look forward to enjoying the unique route through the historic town of Maynooth!

The event is a fund-raiser for the upkeep of the multi-purpose playing fields shared with Maynooth GAA at Mariaville on the Moyglare Road. This year we will also start to raise money towards a Multi-Use Games Area to be located on the new school Campus.

Enter at Maynooth Education Campus from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday April 6th or from 8am to 10am on Sunday April 7th. Entry fees are €20 for an individual or €40 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children.

Refreshments will be served after the race in the school. Excellent Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Ladies and Men in the 10K and 5K plus some spot prizes on the day.
