THE grandeur of Duckett’s Grove is sure to inspire a heroic effort as The Great Duckett Run sets off at 11am on Sunday 26 February.

The chip-timed 5k is a first for the historic Duckett’s Grove, with participants guaranteed a stunning vista as they take on the route through its grounds.

The Great Duckett Run is being held in association with Grange GFC and Grange Village Committee, who have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure a great turnout on Sunday 26 February.

Early-bird registration costing €20 opened two weeks ago and since then it has been filling up fast. Each participant in The Great Duckett Run will receive a beautiful specially commissioned medal, while refreshments will be served for everyone.

Prizes up for grabs include €75 for first place, €50 for the runner-up and €25 for third (all men and women).

The response from the local community to the 5k has been incredible, with many local businesses helping with sponsorship and lots of offers for stewarding and providing refreshments.

“We’ve had great support and lots of volunteers to help on the day,” said Karen.
