The Balclare National School run will return this Sunday for the seventh time, raising funds for amenities for the school and local community.

Money raised in previous Castlehackett 8k events were put towards a running track and astroturf playing surface – and the next stage of their plan is to cover the running track with an astro surface.

The run has grown from strength to strength over the years, and over 400 participants from across the county and beyond completed the last live event.

People can register at, or they can register on the day.

There will be a free technical shirt for all participants, cash prizes for the first three male and female runners, fantastic raffle prizes and refreshments provided.
