Inbhear Dee Streets of Wicklow 5 Km

Inbhear Dee Streets of Wicklow 5 Km, sponsored by Burke Oil will be taking place at 11:00 am starting outside East Glendalough School . All proceeds will go towards Inbhear Dee AC’s “Field of Dreams” project. Wicklow County Council has agreed to put in a running trail approx. 1 mile long around the back fields of the Murrough.

This amenity will be open to the whole community of Wicklow, dog walkers, runners, families and is a project that Inbhear Dee has been working towards for years.

Inbhear Dee has been coaching kids for over 40 years but has no official training ground.

Groups of their juvenile runners can be seen running the streets, the Murrough, the hills and even car-parks of Wicklow. It is a thriving club with over 150 athletes and a long waiting list. This facility would keep the athletes, many of whom have enjoyed recent county, provincial and national success, from running on the hard pavements and enable the club to increase its membership numbers.

Burke Oil the single sponsor of the Streets of Wicklow 5km race for well over a decade, is delighted to be involved in the project. Burke Oil really values the community of Wicklow and understands what this project would mean to the growing town.

Registration will happen on-line with all entries being posted out. Families are encouraged to all get out and walk or run the 5km, with a special family price of €67.50 for a family of 5. As usual there are cash prizes for top 5 men and women in, top 3 juveniles and of course for the first family across the line – 2 adults and 2 kids to count.
