Pacers for the Sixmilebridge 10k - Fri 18th May 2012

One of the main road races in Clare this month is coming up next Friday, the 18th of May. The Sixmilebridge 10k promises to attract a large turnout from both counties Clare and Limerick for this race which starts at 6:30pm.

One unique feature of this 10k race is the use of pacers. These are usually used in the likes of Half-Marathons but will be used in Sixmilebridge for anyone wishing to set a good time over this accurate course. All of the km markers on the course have been measured by Jones Counter so everything is spot on.

Who are the pacers?
These are the pacers as announced by the organisers...

Sub 40 Liz Hussey......Two times winner of the Limerick  marathon (2010 & 2011)

Sub 60 Tom Enright.....1.35 Kinvara HM 2012 – Great Limerick Run Pace leader 2011/2012
