Rollercoaster and Rostrevor Park Run

Please see below details of the “Rollercoaster Race” organised by East Down AC. We encourage as many young athletes as possible to attend bearing in mind that all full members with training places on a Monday night must compete in a minimum of 4 races between Apr 16 and Mar 17 to secure their place next year. (There’s only one McGrady XC Race left on 26th February!). You must run as a member of Newcastle AC for this race to count as one of your 4.

Every Saturday at 9.30am there is a 5K (3.1 miles) Park Run on in Kilbroney Park, Rostrevor. It is a timed run not a race. It is FREE to enter, but you must have a barcode. These are free too. Register at Under 10’s must be accompanied by an adult. Please let us know if you do attend any of these events and how you get on!
