The Tralee Musical Society 5K Fancy Dress Fun Run

Tralee Musical Society, founded in 1986 is a long-standing, well-respected, talented group of people, who dedicate their time to entertaining the audiences of Tralee.

Having gone from strength to strength over the years, Tralee Musical Society has continued to produce award-winning shows, such as ‘Hot Mikado’, ‘Titanic’ and ‘Michael Collins’ to name but a few and has proven to be a stalwart for Tralee audiences.

Producing two shows a year every year, with the annual variety show helping to fund their next production, members of this society have generously given of their talent and time over the years, both on and off stage.

To help fund the society they will be holding a 5k Fancy Dress Fun Run around the theme of music and musicals. There will be a show by TMS in the Wetlands after the race along with refreshments.

There will be great prizes for the best costume, ether it be the best Rock And Roll Dress, best ‘Michael Jackson’, the best ‘Elvis’ costume or maybe some will come along as the ‘Blues Brothers’ costume, don’t forget those 80’s Icons!

You can also dress up as character from a famous musical. There’s sure to be nuns on the run as well as many other fancily dressed characters this Sunday

The run is the first in the ‘Run The Kingdom’ calendar of events and will launch the Society’s first production of the year.

There will also be great prizes for the best costume, so it should be an entertaining affair for everyone.

There is a registration fee for the race. To register online click here. Online registration closes on Friday at midnight.
