Details: 2017 will be the 8th Fat Turkey RUN. We sold out last year so entry is online only. The 10km event will start outside St Fintans Church @11.00.
The Fat Turkey 10km event is to support Suttonians Rugby Football Club (established in 1924) and the IRFU Charitable Trust (Irish Rugby Football Union Charitable Trust was formed in 1978 to assist severely injured rugby players in their everyday lives, and help to restore their confidence and independence).
The scenic route is a challenging 10km course, commencing at St Fintans Church, Sutton, going all the way up Carrickbrack Road, right at the Summit Shop, right again onto Baily Green Road and up to the Summit Car Park (turnaround and aid/water station) and then back down on the same route.
Participant Sign In, race number, timing chip & T-shirt can be collected from 09.00 in Suttonians RFC opposite Sutton Dart Station where parking, changing and shower facilities are available.
Sign In will close at 10.30 followed by a 5-10 mins safety / event briefing. Participants will then take a short walk/jog to St Fintans Church car park which is the start location. The finish line will be on the grass verge opposite St Fintans Church. The race will begin at 11.00 sharp.
On completion of the race participants will jog/walk through Sutton cross to Suttonians R.F.C (approx 500 yards) where changing facilities and tea/coffee, biscuits and full bar will be available. Prize giving will take place at the club.
There will also be a host of family activities at the club with live music, several BBQs, bouncing castles etc.
Cost €23 + Reg Fee. The Fat Turkey Event is a fun filled family day that has been an enormous success over the last number of years.
