Race2Glory returns to Kiltimagh next weekend

Race2Glory Kiltimagh 2022 will take place next Saturday, July 9.

It has been two years in the waiting, with Race2Glory finally getting to celebrate its 10 year anniversary.

This year's event has reached record entries with almost 600 people registered to take part.

The Full Race (40km) starts at 10 a.m. and the Sprint Race at 10.10 a.m. from Kiltimagh GAA pitch. All competitors are asked to be at the pitch no later than 9.30 a.m. as a race briefing will take place.

Registration will take place on Friday, July 8, between 6 and 9 p.m. and Saturday, July 9, between 8 and 9.15 a.m. at Kiltimagh GAA pitch. At registration, participants will receive their race number, which includes timing chip, and a Race2Glory hoodie and goodie bag. You must register in person in order to sign the race waiver document.

Parking is limited and the organisers would like as few cars as possible at the GAA pitch. The car parks are located at the back of the church, beside SuperValu and beside Kiltimagh IRD - if you ask someone they'll point you in the right direction.

Please also note for those signing on Friday, you will not be able to leave your bike overnight.

There is no mandatory kit for Race2Glory, however it goes without saying you must have a helmet in order to take part in the cycle. If you wear cycling shoes you'll need to carry your runners for stage 3 or leave a second pair at transition 2.

The finish line is in the sculpture park in Kiltimagh where there will be a barbecue, ice baths and massage therapists all on hand at the finish line. There will be carnival entertainment for kids (and adults) in the town so bring all your supporters.

Bikes will be under supervision until 3 p.m. at Transition 2. Please note, bikes will not be supervised after 3 p.m. and will be left at owners risk.

There will be a complimentary shuttle bus running between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. from the finish line to T2 to collect bikes.

Showers will be available until 3 p.m. at Kiltimagh GAA pitch.

Race2Glory can be a tough challenge and the organisers will do their utmost that it is as enjoyable and safe as possible. The routes will be well marshaled as always but the roads are open so the Rules of the Road apply.
