New World Record set at Semple & McKillop Race Series

What a way to start a Race Series!

We are delighted to have been the proud sponsor of a successful 2 day Half Marathon & 5k Race event held at Down Royal Racecourse over the weekend. The event was hosted by Championship Ireland. Our congratulations to local girl Emer McKee on setting a new world 5km record for her age!

Other events in the Semple & McKillop Sponsored Race Series include the popular Jimmys 10k, Les Jones 5k and Titanic 10k races. Details on these, and events to be held next month, will be announced shortly. All events are being organised in line with government COVID-19 guidance and regulations.
