Rock the Lough

14th Aug 22 Register here-Rock the Lakes and Lough 5k,10k & 1/2 Marathon (njuko.net)

St. Peter’s AC, Lurgan, after a 2 year hiatus are pleased to be back with our event this year on Sun 14th August.  We’ve listened to the feedback when we staged it 2 years ago and have added a half-marathon and 10k!  Plus, to facilitate the demand for car parking spaces, we’ve moved the Start and Finish to the new South Lake Leisure Centre at Craigavon Lakes.

The route for all events is flat and fast, the setting is idyllic, encompassing both Lakes, with the half marathon taking in the beautiful Oxford Island trails. 

The date of the event will hopefully attract runners preparing for Belfast half in September or full marathons in October. Or, for anyone wanting a run around a lovely location and a great day out!

There is prizemoney for all races with £200 for the Male and Female winners of the half-marathon!

The 5 and 10k events only are open to wheelchair and hand cycle participants.  Unfortunately, the half due to the trails around Oxford Island is unsuitable.

St Peter’s AC have a dual purpose in organising the event. It will help the club raise funding to pay for the hire of training facilities.  And our Charity partner for the event, the Southern Area Hospice Services in Newry, will receive a donation.

The whole St Peters club would like to thank you for supporting our event and would encourage your family and friends to come along to show their support.  We are looking forward to seeing you at the starting line and hope you enjoy a great day with us!
