2019 SMRC Urban Run set for October 6th

The St Michael’s Rowing Club Urban Run will return for 2019, taking place on October 6th, sponsored by Sherry Fitzgerald, Limerick. 

Now in its 7th year, the 10km road-race and 5km family fun-run has previously attracted a combined five hundred runners of all ages to compete on a flat course which is ideal for PBs with it’s a scenic route in the city and along the riverside. The races are AAI licensed events, well marshaled and offer chip timing for all competitors.

Funds raised through the Urban Run are invested in St Michael’s Rowing Club Junior Rowing Programme and the event’s Charity Partners – Limerick Suicide Watch, whose voluntary work is regrettably needed more and more these days.

The event is also one of the main participation-centred activities for Limerick Mental Health Week.
