Making history in Clane - Be part of it!
Clane Athletic Club is delighted to announce the arrival of its new purpose built athletics track, comprising of a 200 metre, six-lane floodlit track.
Clane community will sprint into a new athletics era with the opening of a new, bespoke athletic track later on in 2019.
In the mean time, as an opportunity to fund-raise to offset the capital costs of the project, Clane Athletic club will be hosting a unique 4 mile road race.
The race will also form part of the Kildare Road Race Series (Incorporating the Pat Maleady Memorial Run).
A well organised event
Clane Athletic Club have vast knowledge and experience in race event planning as the club has successfully hosted the Clongowes 5km event every year since 2011.
In early 2019, a decision was made to discontinue the annual Clongowes 5km event, however, as Clane AC have achieved an impeccable reputation for organising a safe & well run event over the last 8 years, we are now looking forward to building on this success further with our own dedicated club event.
We are excited to be the hosts of this fantastic new inaugural Clane AC 4 mile race in Clane and we will take great pride in its meticulous planning.
