The 2016 South Tipp Physio 500K Team Challenge........promoted by Clonmel AC

The South Tipp Physio 500K Team Challenge...promoted by Clonmel AC

From Niall O'Sullivan of Clonmel AC........Welcome to the Clonmel A C 500k Team Challenge sponsored by the South Tipp Physio. Over the year, Clonmel Athletic Club will promote 28 events during 2016 consisting of 12 races over 4k, 6 races over 5k, 5 races over 6k, 2 races over 6.4k, 2 races over 8k, 2 races over 10k and a Half Marathon (21K), a total of 165kms.

Full list of races HERE

A team consists of 5 athletes and this Challenge is open to everyone, Joggers, Fun Runners and athletes, Club and non club alike and it is a team effort to achieve the 500km. This Challenge is achievable especially by someone who is only starting to take up running as the longest distance you have to run is 6K to achieve the 100k. As a team effort we would encourage each member to try and run as many Km as possible to achieve the 500K Challenge, the GOAL of the team is to run 500K in 2016 with all team members contributing to the final total.

This Challenge is open to everyone and it is not the pace that matters but the number of Kilometres that you can achieve at your own pace over the next 12 months. Doing this challenge as part of a team is a great motivator and all team members can play their part in cajoling and tormenting their fellow team members out to train and participate in the listed events. Achieving this Challenge with your friends, hopefully you will all still be friends at the end of 2016, is a brilliant experience and I have no doubt there will be plenty of laughs and fun along the way and to help you along the way we will have a Special award for all our Achievers.

There is no entry fee for this Challenge and we would ask the team captains to submit their teams by the end of February 2016. So let’s start working on the teams, maybe some of your work colleagues and friends might be interested in this Challenge.

If you want any more information on this Challenge, please contact Niall O Sullivan at 086 1660888.
