The Great Rossa Run now in its tenth year has distances to cater for all types of runners with a Half Marathon, 10k and a 5k run. This year’s event will take place on Sunday the 7th July at 10.00am.  Attracting over 750 registrations in the previous year the event is expected to increase in size again this year. As it is now 10 years young the organisers are gearing up to facilitate 1,000 participants, which will also serve as a cap on registrations. In parallel to the timed runs there will be a 5k walk/fun run for any families wishing to take part. All routes have been subject to professional measurement and are part of the accredited “Athletics NI Certified Course”.
