Fat Turkey Run – 2021
Update: 26.12.21 @ 13.50 – RACE CANCELLED…Due to the ongoing and significant increase in Covid numbers and in addition to the advice not to socialise outdoors, it is with huge regret that the organising committee of The Fat Turkey Run have decided to cancel the event.
We are truly saddened by this decision but we believe that this is the correct one in order to protect the participants, the volunteers, our suppliers and also any spectators. All registered participants will be notified by email shortly.
Update: 23.12.2021 @21.00 Race Briefing

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 09.30 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.
Cost €25 + Reg Fee. The Fat Turkey Event is a fun filled morning that has been an enormous success over the last number of years.
