Jimmy’s 10k – (Sunday 18th March 2018)

Jimmy’s 10K is organised in memory of Jimmy Murray, Downpatrick school teacher and athletics enthusiast who was one of the founding members of East Down AC in 1987.

Last year we accommodated record numbers and fully expect to sell out in 2018 so if you want to be sure of getting a slot – don’t delay!

We have been supported by MB McGrady & Co for several years and they are back as headline sponsor for this our 20th year. We are very grateful to them for their continued involvement.

We also have the backing of other local companies – Bells Supervalu Crossgar,  Athlos Triathlon, Gordon’s Chemist(Downpatrick), Wrap and Roll, Plus2print, and Dupes DVD and Video/Soaring Productions

all of whom have helped us to prepare for a great event with fantastic prize money (£200/100/60 to 1,2 and 3 Male and Female overall) as well Age Group and Relay Team prizes. We have tech t shirts for the first 800 10k and 50 relay teams. There is a bus to take relay runners to the changeover point. At the finish there are showers, rub downs and refreshments galore. In short – a great day out!
