Enniscrone Surf and Turf Fun Run 28 Oct
The incredibly popular Enniscrone Surf and Turf run is back again for 2017.
As the event enters its fourth year, competitors will be thrilled to hear that this year’s version will be new and improved, with the organisers currently in thinking-mode on new obstacles to make the course even more fun-filled!
The Enniscrone Surf and Turf fun run has thrilled approximately 500 participants in recent years as competitors compete over the 5-kilometre route for the right to take home the John P Hannon Memorial Cup.
This year’s run takes place on Saturday, October 28th, giving everyone an opportunity to get their October bank holiday weekend off to the perfect start.
Those taking part will have to endure all sorts of underfoot conditions, obstacles and natural elements over the course of our scenic route, which provides plenty of exciting challenges to leave competitors with a smile on their face – however muddy things get!
Our scenic route has been extremely well received by participants over the past number of years as breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean meet our runners as they make their way to the shoreline.
From there, underfoot conditions become somewhat difficult as boggy and marshy fields meet competitors with obstacles from bog pools to streams and everything else in between helping to make the dash for the finish line even more interesting.
Above all, however, fun is at the centre of our run and we assure all those taking part that the route, while challenging, is very negotiable and with plenty of helpers along the way, everyone is guaranteed to make it to the finish line.
In addition, for our younger competitors aged between 14 and 16, there is a three-kilometre route which will incorporate much of the same rough and tumble as the main course.
The entry fees are modest at €20 for adults and €10 for youths, and we can guarantee everyone this represents very good value for your money – just ask anyone who has taken part in recent years.
Our starting and finishing point is the home of Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA club in Quigabar and registration is available on the morning of the event from 10.30am, with the starting gun set to ring out at 12pm.
There are great prizes up for grabs in each category (Mens, Ladies and Youths) with a €600 pot which will be distributed in the form of sports vouchers among the winners in each section on the day, with the overall winner capturing the John P Hannon Memorial Cup.
Once again, the event is very kindly sponsored by Mattie Coleman of Coleman Electronics.
There will also be a team of photographers lining the route to capture all the best moments of your run, with shower and changing room facilities, as well as much needed refreshments, available for everyone after the race at the Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA club grounds.

For now, we look forward to preparing for the event, and welcoming those from near and far to Enniscrone on October 28th for another memorable day!
