Milford Hospice 10k
This is a special race on the running calendar for many people. The care and support that the Milford Hospice and its community care teams give to the people of Limerick and beyond was acknowledged by a very large turnout.
There were over 2000 runners and walkers taking part in this event around the University of Limerick and its surrounding areas. These entrants were well taken care of by a huge team of volunteers and local Gardaí.
