Why are some kilometres reserved?
Because Rith 2012 is a community-based festival, we would like to see community groups running in the towns more so than prviate individuals and businesses. The reserved kilometres have been put aside for groups such as
- Third Level Colleges
- Youth Clubs
- Irish language organisations & groups
- Arts Groups
- Sports Clubs
- Scouting Groups
