The 2nd race of the O Reilly Total Pharmacy sponsored 4k race took place tonight in ideal conditions. We are very grateful to Barry Horgan for generously sponsoring this year’s series of races. We are also very grateful to the Brothers of Charity for the use of their carpark as Race headquarters. The Club would like to thank the Red Cross for First Aid cover. Thanks also to our many stewards who give of their time freely to ensure that the whole event was well marshalled and organised, such help is very much appreciated by everyone.
To date we have had 114 athletes taking part with 36 of them competing in the two races so far and well on their way to receiving a specially designed Umbrella for any athlete that competes in three out of the first four races of tis year’s series.

Next week, the race format will be “Predict your Finishing time” , Here you must Predict your Finishing time when Registering for the race and then you must run the 4k without a watch or head phones and we will award prizes to the 6 athletes who finish the nearest to their predicted time.
