The Second Stoneyford 10km Challenge will take place on Sunday, 22nd May 2011. This is an initiative of the Stoneyford Parents Association and was born out of a need to raise money for Scoil Náisiúnta Chiaráin Naofa, our local primary school. In this difficult and restrictive budgetary climate we find ourselves , parents and teachers are having to find varied ways to raise funds for necessary and innovative school projects.

The Stoneyford 10km Challenge is a 10 kilometer road race/event. It should appeal to all, both young and old, from the seriously competitive athlete to the casual jogger, the dedicated walker or carefree stroller. Revolving around the race, will be a family fun day. All are welcome to enjoy the various family entertainment events that will take place in the Stoneyford Community Centre/Field afterwards.

The Stoneyford 10km Challenge will begin in the picturesque village of Stoneyford. It will then turn southwest, following the Kings River, past the historic Kells Priory and returning back in the shadows of the nearby Kilree Tower, finishing to a warm welcome back in the Village. The May countryside will be stunning. While the views are breathtaking, the route is challenging, with hills and valleys intermingled along the way. Thus, it will be paradoxically tough but fun!

There is an overall cash prize fund of €1,000. The first male and female over the finish line will receive €200 each; there will be €150 each for the second male and female the third male and female will receive €60 each and fourth male and female €40 each. For those of us less competitive, there is no need to worry as there will be numerous spot prizes and age category prizes. Goodie bags and refreshments will also be available to all finishers.

The entry fee is €20 for Runners (chipped) and €15 for Walkers. You can enter via the entry form on this page or register online at www.runireland.com or www.stoneyfordonline.com. All proceeds will go to Scoil Náisiúnta Chiaráin Naofa, Stoneyford Co. Kilkenny.
