Tom Kelly 8k, 15th January 2023 at 9.30am


Event Description:

St Brendan’s AC will host the Tom Kelly 8K on Sunday 15th January 2023 in memory of one of St Brendan’s AC founding members, Tom Kelly. This is the second year of this event.

Tom was coach and club dynamo for the first 10 years and inspired both adults and juveniles with his exemplary work. His work helped to make St Brendan’s AC the top club in Kerry for 10 years in a row. Tom passed away in 2020 and his family gratefully allowed this run to be promoted in his memory.

Start time 9.30am. Online Registrations.  Cost is €17 for adults. Cost is €12 for participants aged 19 or under on the day of the event. Non athletics Ireland participants taking part in this permitted event will incur a €2 charge for a one day licence. This €2 charge is paid directly to Athletics Ireland. 


Medals for all participants. Walkers are also very welcome.

Start of the race is adjacent to Ardfert Cathedral in Ardfert Village. To compete in the 8k, participants have to be aged 15 or older on the day of the event as per Athletics Ireland guidelines. This is a permitted event.

Last year was the inaugural event and it was a huge success.

St Brendan’s AC look forward to welcoming you all to Ardfert again this January for TK8K 2023.
