Sliabh Bawn Power DAC Ros Run

The Sliabh Bawn summit was a busy place during the Sliabh Bawn Power DAC Ros Run on July 28th.  More than 450 runners, from across the country, took on the challenging courses in the 10km, half marathon, full marathon and 50km ultra marathon races.  Supporters lined the 28km trails to cheer friends and family as they stormed past on one of the cooler days of the July heatwave.  Plans are under for the 2019 event which promises to be bigger and better again!
