STOOK 10 Mile

The Stook 10 Mile is hosted by Gowran AC to raise funds for their athletics club.

This race is a must-do for all runners! The race is set over a challenging but enjoyable 10-mile route, so you will enjoy running in some of Kilkenny’s most beautiful scenery. The route winds across gentle valleys and up country roads before emerging at the crest of Stook Hill. From here you will have stunning views down to the finish, but first you’ll get to experience Ireland’s fastest timed downhill mile – The Stook Flying Mile. With timing mats at either end, everyone receives a personal split for that single mile. Will you be the first to break 4 minutes? After the Stook flying mile there is more downhill, followed by about 200m of a pull and then a quick downhill finish.

Obviously, the race is now famous for our unique finisher’s medal, which pays homage to the race’s fabulous setting in the form of a classic cowbell! Collections of these sought-after ornaments are now building all over the country! What colour will be added this year?

We look forward to seeing you all in Dungarvan on Sunday 3rd March 2024! Exhilarating fun in the wilds of Co. Kilkenny is only a click away!
