Summer Solstice 10k

We would like to congratulate and thank everyone that made the summer solstice 10k possible. After being absent from the racing calendar for two years we were delighted to bring it back. Huge thank you to everyone that signed up to the event. To our stewards and volunteers for their time, we couldn’t do events without you. Thank you to the Kerryman for being our media sponsor and for all their assistance. Major thanks to Byrne’s Spar Tralee for sponsoring the water for our events and for all your support. Thank you to Barry Fitzgerald for taking the photographs on the night, Alan Farmer for the music and mcing at the finish line, the civil defence for covering the first aid, Kerry county council for their time, patience and input into helping us host the event, An Garda Siochana for their time and assistance on ensuring the route and crossing were safe, Tralee Chamber of Commerce for your input, Danny Leane and his crew in the Abbey Inn for hosting our registration and number collection and putting on music and a bbq after the event. Vincent, Catherine and Lindsey Guthrie for not only providing the timing of the event but your time, assistance and guidance. To our own team here, thank you for all your time and effort in enabling us to bring back this event and for your work on our other events, the long hours put in are not unappreciated. You may or may not be aware of the fact that the Summer Solstice 10k is, has always and will always be a fundraiser for the Irish Heart Foundation. All Profits from the event go to the Irish Heart Foundation. Ann Riordan of the Irish Heart Foundation, thanks for your assistance in this event and all the others throughout the years. We look forward to many more.
