When: Sunday 16th January 2022

Time: 11:00am

Where: Ballinkillen Hurling Club

This year, Carlow Sports Partnership will facilitate a 5k walk/roll in conjunction with Ballinkillen Hurling Club, Ballinkillen to celebrate the launch of the club’s new walking track.

The new track surface is fully accessible for all levels of mobility including wheelchair users and prams. The walk will consist of a group warm up, a lap of the new track followed by a road walk and concluding with a final lap of the track.

Please note that the road is quite hilly with uneven terrain and may not be suitable for all levels of fitness or persons with limited mobility. In this case, participants are welcomed to walk/roll 5 laps of the new track which will equate to the 5k distance.

The walk will be led by trained tutors who will set the pace and spread out among the group to ensure everyone is supported and encouraged. The route will be marshalled and signposted at each junction with first aid responders on site.

Carlow Sports Partnership will also provide hi-visibility jackets and snoods to participants. There are however a limited number of each available so they will be administered on a first come, first serve basis.

Please Note:

  • The most up-to-date Covid-19 guidelines will be adhered to throughout this event.
  • A photographer will be onsite throughout the programme, please let any staff member or volunteer know if you do not wish to be photographed.
  • If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Deborah via deborahfoley@carlowcoco.ie
