Set on the lawn of the Oldbridge estate, the 41st Rás na hÉireann International Cross Country will take place on February 28th 2010. This venue proved an ideal place last year to host a true cross country race, when the Rás celebrated its 40th birthday. In 2010, it is hoped that the Rás na hÉireann cross country event, which is part of a cross border Sport and Culture Week thanks to strong links with Armagh Athletic Club, will emulate that of 2009. There will be cross country races for boys and girls, men and women from age 8 - 88! All are welcome to come and compete.
The course was highly praised last year by all who attended the event for its genuine cross country appeal. The International athletes were impressed with the facility rating it a top European cross country course.The ground is undulating and firm underfoot, and well marked out by course stewards including Club stalwart Tommy Neary and his team in the days before the event. Oldbridge House is a perfect backdrop for the event. The OPW have created a superb recreation space at Oldbridge, steeped in history, and Rás na hÉireann and Dunleer Athletic Club are honoured to host their event once again in this marvellous location.
