AFTER another successful New Year’s Eve 5k/10k race, Michelle Greaney of Optimal Fitness is once again planning the Tralee 10 Miler and 5k Road Race for Saturday, February 16 at 10am from The Rose Hotel.

As with New Year’s Eve, the chosen charity is the Kerry Hospice Foundation. Last year’s event drew 300 participants and a good turnout is expected again.

Michelle says the event will bring together the ideal combination of club athletes and recreational runners over a relatively flat, fast course taking in the outskirts of Tralee.
