Tipperary...Race notice for the Cahir Run4Fun 4 mile road race - Wed 1st May 2013

This 4 mile road race is coming up in Cahir, South Tipperary on Wednesday, the 1st of May 2013...

With it being so close to the M8 motorway, it should attract runners from a wide catchment area.

Directions...Cahir is located in the south of Tipperary, just off the M8 motorway from Cork to Dublin...

If you are coming from the motorway, follow all the signs for Cahir. This will take you into the centre of the town and this T-junction shown below. Cahir Castle is about 300m to your left but you need to turn right here and drive up the hill. The start line is outside Morrisons Garage which you will see on the left.

Course......The 4 mile race takes in a loop to the south and west of the town...

Race HQ is Morrisons Garage with the race starting and finishing just outside.
Notes from the organisers, Clonmel AC....This is an Open 4 Mile road race where we will have a select number of Prizes for the 1st 2 Senior men and Women as well as the 1st 2 Master men and Women. The novelty here is that we will have a Lucky Dip of Finishing positions where there will be a lot of Good Prizes allocated in an Open Draw on finishing positions during the race. This type of competition will see prizes allocated to athlete’s right down throughout the race. There will be a number of Cash Prizes including a prize of 100 Euros among all the Prizes. Also there will be a donation to South Tipperary Hospice for every athlete that completes the course, so the more participants, the more funds this very worthy cause will receive.
