Notice...Tipperary...Clonmel 4k race series - Oct to Dec 2014

Clonmel AC are organising a series of 4 km races every Wednesday evening from the 29th of October to the 3rd of December 2014.

Some notes from the organisers....The Autumn 4K Road Race Series This very popular series of races caters for all levels of fitness and it gets underway on Wednesday 29th October at 7pm. This year’s series will consist of six races finishing on Wednesday 3rd December. The entry fee is 4 Euros and there will be prizes to be won every night of the series. We will use different race formats during the series. 

This series will cater for all levels of fitness as we will have three stagger starts catering for three different level of fitness. It is an ideal opportunity to Get and Stay Fit for the winter months in the company of others. This is a great way to encourage people to train during the Winter months, especially when the evenings get dark and it is easier to sit at home and watch TV. This year we are encouraging as many people as possible to come out to Get and Stay Fit. 

This series of races are also part of the Joe Grinsell 100km Challenge. We are indeed very grateful to the Brothers of Charity for the use of their Car park for registration. As regards parking please obey the stewards. 

There are a few Rules to be observed for this Series and we ask all participants to co operate: 
1. All runners must wear reflective bibs, luminous jackets or tops are not sufficient for running in the dark. It is part of the club’s health and safety policy that all runners MUST wear REFLECTIVE gear so please obey this rule. Proper reflective bibs can be bought at most Sports shops and we will have ones to borrow when you REGISTER each night. 
2. You must wear your number at the front of your bib as your number will be recorded as you cross the line and we can then work out your time. Please pin your number either above or below the reflective strip on your bib, pinning your number on the reflective strip will mean that you will not be visible to traffic. 
3. Watches, headphones, ipods or MP3 players are strictly forbidden. You must be able to hear the instructions of the stewards and you also need to be able to hear the traffic from all directions, there will be no exceptions to this rule. Stewards will take note of your number and we will know who you are, please don’t let this happen. 

This series of races is an ideal opportunity for everyone to Get and Keep Fit for the Winter at their own pace in the Company of other athletes as these races caters for all levels of fitness from Jogging to running. Indications are that this year’s series of races will attract a great entry so everyone is asked to come early and enter. Entries will be taken at the Brothers of Charity car park, Silversprings, from 6.15pm onwards each night. The Club would like members to come forward and help with the marshalling of these races.
