The McMahons Supervalu Blayney 5k will be in its 5th year in 2015, and to date our entry numbers have increased each year with 800 people registered to run in 2014. The run will take place on the 29th of November 2015 at 2pm and the race starts near the Glencarn Hotel and heads out the Old Monaghan Road for 2.5 k, loops back in the road to finish on Main St. By Monaghan standards this is a fast route. The route will be traffic free and excellently stewarded for runner’s safety and comfort. The race is also chipped to ensure accurate and timely results for all those participating. There will be a group warm up for anybody who wishes, directly before the race
In 2015 we have an extensive Prize List with €100 for 1st male and female and €50 for 2nd in both with a trophy for 3rd.
In addition we have following categories
Over 40’s 1st €30 for men and women and 2nd in each €20
Over 50’s 1st €30 for men and women and 2nd in each €20
And also underage prizes for u16 and u14 age groups.
In recognition of the run being suitable for all levels, we have a medal for every finisher. And it is not there that the day’s festivities finish, after the run, it is straight to the nearby Glencarn Hotel where there will be tea and something nice for all the race goers where Special guest, David Matthews will be in attendance and will make the presentations. David is a two time Olympian and still holds the national 800m record. He was also the Cork senior Hurling Physical Coach for the last number of years. A man well worth meeting and listening to!
