The Blackwater 10K has certainly become an annual fixture in Monaghan’s Calendar as the event continues to grow in entries each year.

Starting off from Monaghan United Football grounds, athletes of all ages lead the way to Rossmore Forest Park. Walkers follow with the sound of chatter and laughter filling the air in a more relaxed pace with children in pushchairs and all ages taking in the beautiful surroundings and good weather (hopefully) that we expect in May.


The success of this event has been made possible with the strong committment of the organising committee led by the Chairman¬†Eamonn Hackett, representatives of Athletics Clubs –¬†Monaghan Phoenix and Glaslough Harriers Club and a brilliant team of volunteers to make the whole thing possible.


The Blackwater10k event now has its own dedicated website.
