- The 5k Series T-Shirts will be distributed to qualifying participants before the race from 6:45pm in the Pavillion and after the race in the Westwood Hotel. Frank Burke from Athenry will be coordinating the distribution on the night. There will be no distributions after the race in the Pavillion as this facility must be vacated on time.
