(Sponsored by Youghal Credit Union)
Hello to all from Youghal AC.
This week we are going to concentrate on our club race:
YOUGHAL AC will hold a 4 MILE ROUND THE HOUSES RACE on THURSDAY 11TH JULY at 8pm
This is the clubs most important event of the year as it is our main fundraiser. This will be a great event for the club and town and will be run over a very flat course; this will give people the opportunity to achieve PB’s over the 4 mile distance. We are looking for all club members to help where ever they can with this event; we are looking for bakers, sandwich makers and stewards. If you can help out in any way, please contact Mossie on 087 9349147, Sandra on 087 9767667 or George 087 9165819.
This race is revived after a lapse of 25 years and in the past attracted such greats as John Tracey, Ray Tracey, Gerry Kiernan and Liam O’Brien all great Irish Olympians. Hopefully this year’s race will attract some future Irish Olympians.
The race will begin on the back street at the back of SuperValu and after three laps of the town from Devonshire square to Watsons corner will finish on the quay by the tourist office.
The race is being sponsored by our main sponsors Youghal Credit Union and our club members Steve and Rickki from TRInRUN.
We invite all members of any other sporting club in Youghal to compete in the race and help promote this event.
It is important that this race is successful as it is our major fundraiser for the year.
