This year’s Abbey Run 10k and associated 7k family fun run in Quin has been officially launched by ultra-marathon champion Keith Whyte.

Following on from last year’s success, the AAI certified and timed event raises much needed funds for Quin-Clooney Community Games who continue to enjoy phenomenal success at bot local and national level.

Last year saw over 300 participants enjoy what the organisers say is one of the most scenic routes on the circuit.

The first 250 participants past the post in the 10k will all receive a specially minted commemorative medal for their efforts and all the younger participants will be rewarded with an Easter egg.

The event begins in Quin on Easter Saturday morning at 11am where the Mayor of Clare, Cllr John Crowe will get proceedings underway.
