Where can I pick up my race pack?
All packs must be picked up from The Clare People Offices on Thursday 19th or Friday 20th May between 6-8pm. If you can’t pick up on either evening packs can be picked up from Lees Road on the morning of the event. You are advised to come early if you are picking up the pack on the morning of the event, as the Clare 10K has to start at 10am sharp.
Is the race distance approved by the Athletics Association of Ireland?
Yes, the race is fully AAI approved. It is measured by Jones Counter, the official method of measurement as sanctioned by the Athletics Association of Ireland. This method has caused consternation in the past as it regularly differs from measurements taken by instruments with GPS measurement capabilities, such as Garmin watches. The Jones Counter measurement is sanctioned by both the AAI and the IAAF (International Athletics Association) and is therefore the official method of measurement for races across the world. As of yet, instruments with GPS capabilities are not sanctioned as official measurement tools and cannot be adhered to in the planning of a race route.
Can other charities raise money for their chosen charity for the event?
All charities are very welcome to raise money for their chosen charity. When you enter, your €20 entry goes directly to Clare Haven Services. You can have your own sponsorship cards and collect for your charity and get people to sponsor you for the event. You must be responsible for collecting this money yourself and looking after all proceeds collected.
Can I support the event if I don’t take part in the race/run/walk?
