A 5K/10K road race will take place on New Years Eve in Tralee to close the year on a healthy note and raise funds for a local charity.

Optimal Fitness presents its first 5k and 10k event starting from The Rose Hotel at 11am on Sunday, December 31 and organiser Michelle Greaney is hoping runners of all abilities will get together for a final run of the year.

Also, Michelle said a large part of the funds raised will go to Kerry Cork Health Link Bus.
