Most important event of the year is coming up on the 11th July at 8pm with our club fundraising 4 mile around the houses race. 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.

It is important that this race is successful as it is our major fundraiser for the year.

We are also starting Adult Speed Work training in Tower Park from next Tuesday 25th June at 7.30. This training is for all levels, male and female, we hope to make it the Club training night where all the adult members can get together. This type of training will help anyone who is trying to improve their times over any distance.

Great to see all the Youghal AC hoodies on the children around town, it is excellent advertising for the club.

Club Hoodies and New jerseys are also available from Ricky and anyone looking for club tracksuits contacts Mossie Cahill, Frank Morrision or George Bulman.
