Portmarnock AC Velvet Strand 5k and 10k

Thursday Thursday 24 August 2017
Venue: Naomh Mearnog GAA Club

Velvet Strand in Portmarnock, North Dublin, is one of the county’s most stunning stretches of sand.

The 5km beach is a summertime favourite with the city’s denizens, as they head out of the sweltering city to loll by the sea.

If you fancy something a little more hardcore for your summer exercise, though, you should check out the Velvet Strand 5k and 10k, which is ideal for seasoned runners as well as those who have just mastered the mid-distances.

The race will begin at the Naomh Mearnóg GAA club before heading down the sandy strand for a refreshing run. You’ll certainly enjoy the ice cream you’ll get at the finishing line.

With prizes galore, you’ve got even more reason to push yourself in your training before this 5km and 10km beach run. See if you can rise to the top in your age group or category after a little concentrated training - you may just surprise yourself.
