Armada 8km Road Race

  • Streedagh Streedagh Point County Sligo Ireland (map)

A new innovation for this year’s festival.

The Armada 8km starts at the entrance to Streedagh Beach in front of the Spanish Armada monument. Runners and walkers will then take the route along the main Streedagh road before turning right for Staad Abbey, turning left towards the main road before turning back towards the finish back at Streedagh Beach. This is an event which will suit both the serious competitor and the fun runner and walker. Take part in this - the first ever Armada 8km race, and there’s still plenty of time to get fit for the event.

Includes spot prizes and cash prizes for various categories, including first international male and female finishers!

Refreshments afterwards in Grange Village on the Green and prize giving at Grange Hall.

PRICE: €10 (early bird online price) or €12 on the day. Family €20
