Event Description:

 

Following on from the success of last year's event, the Ros Run, Sliabh Bawn returns on 27th and 28th July 2019

 

This event allows you to pick a distance and run either Saturday July 27th or Sunday July 28th OR there is an option to run BACK TO BACK races (same distance) over both days.

 

It will be a looped route with breath-taking views of the surrounding counties amongst the forest on a compact gravel finished road. This route starts and finishes up on Sliabh Bawn mountain which is located on the Lanesboro to Strokestown road, 10 mins from Roscommon town.

 

Sliabh Bawn is now the home of a wind farm providing sustainable energy provided by board na Mona and Coillte.

 

Slieve Bawn is a small but highly significant mountain set among the lakes and flatlands of eastern Co. Roscommon. This gives a view of approx 250kms - almost coast-to-coast - one of the widest in Ireland.

 

All participants who have registered online will recieve their race number by post the week of the event. 

Water stations will be provided on the course and finish line.

 

Hot food for all participants after the race.

 

All finishers will receive a t-shirt and a medal.
