Mile Dash Challenge...Farranfore, Co.Kerry - Tues 6th May 2014

On the 6th of May 1954, Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile for the very first time. To commemorate the 60th anniversary, Farranfore Maine-Valley AC are holding a series of one mile races on Tuesday evening the 6th of May 2014.

RACE COURSE…The race will be on the old road which runs parallel to the main N22 Tralee to Killarney road. This is a very quiet road with only access for local home owners. The finish line will be just before you enter the 4PARK BUSINESS CENTER, which is also the registration point where there is ample parking available. So you must walk approx.. 1mile to the starting point. This makes a good opportunity to warm up before the race. Please allow ample time to get to the starting point.

ENTRY FEE….Entry Fee is just €5 for Senior & Masters, All Juvenile U18 compete for Free

PRIZES….Each participant will receive a certificate for completing the 1Mile to commemorate 60th anniversary of the sub 4min. mile race. The top 3 winners in each category will receive a cash prize and a commemorative plaque to mark the occasion.
