2018 Urban Run

We're back! St. Michael's Rowing Club, Limerick is please to announce the return of our annual Urban Run, on Sunday October 7th at 13:00.

Registration is now open!

Now in it's sixth year, the SMRC Urban Run sponsored by Sherry Fitzgerald will be held on Sunday October 7th and will again deliver a flat, fast and scenic course so you can achieve your goal - no matter what your ability. The 10k event is ideal as a final fast run in the taper for DCM, for an attempt at a PB, or just to measure your progress in 2018, whilst the 5k is growing into a big family event with up to 300 runners taking part in 2016 & 2017.

If you've done a previous SMRC Urban Run, we know you'll be back if you can make it....... if you haven't, make 2018 the year you become an Urban Runner!!

Last year's Urban Run was on October 8th.

Thank you to everyone who participated and of course to our army of super volunteers who were instrumental in making it all happen and run so smoothly and safely, and our generous main sponsors
Sherry Fitzgerald / Cushman & Wakefield whose contributions are most welcome again this year.
