Rossi 5K- In Memory of Eoin & James #EJ5K
July 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm£15
The Rossi 5K & Family Walk- In Memory of Eoin Farrell and James Miskelly returns for another year.
On the 28th July ’18 at 6pm, the Rossi are hosting one of the best 5K Chipped Race in Rostrevor with a family fun walk for all abilities. There are excellent cash prizes and trophies up for grabs, for 1st Female and 1st Male with Youth trophies for under age Best Youth Males and Females. This year our chosen charity is Life & Time, a proposed new ‘End of Life’ Palliative Care service for the area.
5K Runners: £15.
This year participants will run one of the best routes around the Rostrevor countryside and the scenic shore line of Carlingford Lough. The route has been designed with safety in mind with only left turns and good surface all the way and will have full marshall and support vehicles for the event. Runners will have safety cars at the front and rear to ensure maximum ‘piece of mind’ for the runners. St. John Ambulance will also be in attendance this year for the event. There will be 2 water stops along the route, which will give confidence especially with the heat we have experienced this summer so far.
All Runners will receive a complimentary beer for our good friends at Mourne Mountains Brewery and fresh nutritious food prepared on the day. All Runners will receive a bespoke Designed Rossi #EJ5K Finishers Medal.
5K Family Walk: £1-5
After the runners depart in the chipped event, walkers will start the scenic route around Rostrevor in memory of Eoin & James and for our chosen Charity, Life & Time. There are two water stops along the route, to keep you hydrated and lots of music on the ‘home straight’ to keep you motivated. Each walker will receive a ‘Walkers Medal’ as a momento of your support of the day.
