Summer Solstice 10k

Event Information

After an absence of two years, the beloved Summer Solstice 10k is making a return this year.  We have a brand new route available this year that we would consider to be one that is perfect for those wishing to get a personal best time, as well as those wishing to complete their first ever 10k.  The event starts and finishes in Tralee Town Park.

Taking place on the day of the Summer Solstice, the event marks longest day of the year.  As usual, proceeds from the event will go to the Irish Heart Foundation.  The number of entries to this event are strictly limited, so once they are gone, they’re gone.
