Craigavon Lakes 10k, 5k and 1k Family Run

Wednesday 6th June 2018

Craigavon Watersports centre will again host this year’s Lakes runs.  Due to the development of the New Leisure Centre, we have temporarily moved location. You can now find us just around the corner in Craigavon Civic Centre.

The start and finish of the Race will be at the front of Craigavon Civic Centre and the route remains extremely flat, taking in the pathways around the picturesque Craigavon Lakes and City Park, ideal for both beginners and those pursuing a PB!
