Interest has been high in this year’s event and early booking  is advised as there will be a cap of 500 athletes for this year’s event. Online registration is now open for the Coney Island Challenge Races.

Entry forms are available below.

The event will be held on Saturday October 21st at 1 pm, 2017. Both runs will go onto the island this time. The 10k run and walk start at Sligo Rugby Club, go about 300 metres and turn left just past Sonny Bree’s pub. The route then then goes down the lane, onto the strand, past Doon Patrick Island and onto Coney Island following the same route as the 10 mile run to the back of the island as far as  Carter’s Beach and then back the same way. The 10 mile run is the same as last year. It goes along the Strandhill–Sligo road, down Coney Lane, across the causeway, onto the island and over to Carter’s Beach and then back the same way.

There will be chip and pin timing for all the athletes with a commemorative T-shirt for all finishers.  Last year’s race attracted over 500 entrants. The start and finish is at Sligo Rugby Club with changing facilities and refreshments after the race.

The walk will finish by 3.30pm
