Ardagh 10 Mile Challenge 2014
Image by Peter Mooney
This is a photograph from the annual Ardagh Challenge 10 Mile and 5KM Road Races which took place in Ardagh, Co. Longford, Ireland on Sunday 28th December 2014 at 13:00. The race headquarters (and finish) are located at Ardagh St. Patrick’s GAA Grounds (Keenan Park). The 5KM takes runners on a local loop starting and finishing at the GAA grounds and through the beautiful scenic village of Ardagh. The 10 Mile challenge starts just outside the village and brings participants over ‘Ardagh Mountain’ which is a substantial climb at about 2.5 miles into the race. The 10 mile route was made extra challenging today as a result of the very hard frost the previous night which made for very icy running conditions on shaded parts of the route not exposed to the bright December sunshine. The ten mile route brought runners on a large loop of the neighbouring townlads of Ardagh. Excellent stewarding and signage was provided along the route.
The two events are organized by Ardagh Moydow Glen Community Games who use these events as an annual fundraiser.
We have a set of photographs from today at the following Flickr address: www.flickr.com/photos/peterm7/sets/72157649570517620
The MapMyRun profile of the route is available here [www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/570956144]
Location of Ardagh, Co. Longford: www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=53.666944&mlon=-7.693333&…
Ardagh is probably County Longford’s most picturesque village with many historical and architecturally important features. It is located about 6 miles from Longford town.

I ran in the race – but my photograph doesn’t appear here in your Flickr set! What gives?
As mentioned above we take these photographs as a hobby and as a voluntary contribution to the running community in Ireland. Very often we have actually ran in the same race and then switched to photographer mode after we finished the race. Consequently, we feel that we have no obligations to capture a photograph of every participant in the race. However, we do try our very best to capture as many participants as possible. But this is sometimes not possible for a variety of reasons:
►You were hidden behind another participant as you passed our camera
►Weather or lighting conditions meant that we had some photographs with blurry content which we did not upload to our Flickr set
►There were too many people – some races attract thousands of participants and as amateur photographs we cannot hope to capture photographs of everyone
►We simply missed you – sorry about that – we did our best!
You can email us petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com to enquire if we have a photograph of you which didn’t make the final Flickr selection for the race. But we cannot promise that there will be photograph there. As alternatives we advise you to contact the race organisers to enquire if there were (1) other photographs taking photographs at the race event or if (2) there were professional commercial sports photographers taking photographs which might have some photographs of you available for purchase. You might find some links for further information above.
Don’t like your photograph here?
That’s OK! We understand!
If, for any reason, you are not happy or comfortable with your picture appearing here in this photoset on Flickr then please email us at petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com and we will remove it as soon as possible. We give careful consideration to each photograph before uploading.
I want to tell people about these great photographs!
