GER WYLEY SPORTS/NIKE SUMMER SERIESEntries for the summer series are flowing in at a steady rate and we would like to remind all athletes that the closing date to enter is Friday, June 26 at the Dromana 5mile road race. Ann Dunford is presently drawing up the league tables and keeping track of each athlete’s finishing position. At the minute, some people may appear at the top of the table but this may be because they have only run one or two races. After the Dromana run, there will only be four races left so in order to get the minimum of 6 races in, people will have to run all the remaining races which will help give a clearer picture of the tables. We will have the league tables on display at Ras na Rinne on Friday night and we ask that all athletes check the tables to make sure that your name is there if you have joined the series. If there are any problems, please contact Ann Dunford or Norma Wall to let them know......Ger Wyley Sports.
