It is a very well organized event that goes out live on RTE with 2 great children’s races preceding the main run…..
New this year ‘Mini’ event, 5-8 years, start time: 11.00am approx
Junior run 2.5km, 9-15 years: 11.15am approx
Adult 10 km (6.25 miles) race start time : 1.00pm
Entry costs…Juniors €8 & Adults €28 (€29 after 1st Feb). In order for me to secure this reduced child rate of €8 I need to submit the clubs application by the end of Jan. Also if I can guarantee 10 adults to enter we will get 2 of those free! So please join in, its a fab experience & really is a great day out in the park.
We are looking at arranging a coach to take us all into Dublin en mass & after the runs we can (weather permitting) enjoy a leisurely picnic in the park.
Entries can be made online right up to the event so if you don’t want to commit at this stage you can always apply independently at a later date but what I would ask is that all the children who wish to enter are entered via the club.
Remember your new years resolution to ‘get fit’ ….look forward to hearing the ping of e mails from you all!!??
Thanks for your time, Lisa
