Kevin Heaney 5K Memorial Race

Newry City Runners is delighted to announce that the Kevin Heaney 5k Memorial Race (The Christmas Classic) in honour of all runners that have sadly passed, will take place on Sunday 5th December 2021. The race is on a perfectly flat route which should make for some exceptionally quick times.

We are really pleased that STATSports, an unparalleled, all-encompassing sports science and performance analysis service within the elite sporting industry, has agreed to sponsor the race, providing two of their Athlete Series GPS Performance Tracker Vests as prizes.

General Information

The 2021 Kevin Heaney 5k Memorial Race will take place on Sunday 5th December at 10.00am from WIN industrial Estate Newry. There is ample car parking adjacent to the start line.

Race numbers are capped at 150 and we expect the race to sell out well in advance so we would encourage everyone to enter early to avoid disappointment.
