Our annual mini marathon takes place on Monday 1st June commencing at 12 noon. This year we are holding a 10k and 5k run/walk with both events getting underway simultaneously. Premier Timing Systems will chip time all entrants and the first three men and ladies in both the 10k and 5k runs will receive prizes as follows – 1st €50, 2nd €30, 3rd €20. There will also be a special prize of €50 if the course records in the 10k event are broken. The records are 32.48 set by Luke Forde, Dunboyne in 2012 and 37.04 set by Dympna Ryan, Dundrum in 2013. Entry fee is €15 and all entries will be taken on the day. Refreshments will be served in the club pavilion following the event. Your continued support is much appreciated. All proceeds from this year’s event will be going to offset the huge cost of our track upgrade.
The club has organised sponsorship cards and we appeal to all athletes, particularly our senior athletes, to take a card and raise much needed funds for our track redevelopment. These cards are available from the club house. We also need all members of the club to be behind and support this event by participating in either of the runs. If not competing please give your time to helping out in one of the many jobs such as Stewards, Parking Attendants, Catering Staff, Entry Personnel etc. that are required to successfully run the 5k and 10k.
