The 10th running of our mini marathon takes place on Monday June 3.  How time flies and in those intervening years numbers have surged and dropped depending on the cause we have raised money for.  Over the past couple of years, the funds raised have helped to keep the club running and is our only major fundraising effort during the year apart from our annual church gate collection.  This year we are providing a 10k Run and 5k Run/Walk with both events starting simultaneously at 12 noon on that day.   Entry fee is €15 for the 10k and €10 for the 5k Run/Walk and this will be taken up in the club house on the day of the event where all numbers will be issued from.   Both events will be timed by our own club officials.  Prize money on offer will be as follows – 10k – 1st €100, 2nd €50, 3rd €30.  5k Run – 1st €50, 2nd €30, 3rd €20.  Bonus of €50 for breaking course record over 10k.  These records currently stand at 32.07 in the men’s event and 37.04 in the ladies’ event.  All participants will be presented with a medallion at the end of their respective event and are then very welcome to enjoy the refreshments provided afterwards.  We have had some great racing over the years and this year should provide much of the same again.  All support is greatly appreciated.
