Race notice...Ballymacarbry 5 mile road race, W Waterford - Fri 26th July 2013

The 9th race of 10 in the Ger Wyley Sports/SKINS Summer Series continues on Friday, the 26th of July 2013 with the Ballymacarbry 5 mile road race. Located on the R672 road between Dungarvan and Clonmel, the race which starts at 7:30pm should attract a good crowd.

From the organisers West Waterford AC......
All roads lead to Ballymacarbry next Friday evening, July 26th for the 9th race in the Ger Wyley Sports/SKINS Summer Series. This race has always proved very popular down through the years and a large crowd is expected Friday night also. We wish to sincerely thank our race sponsor Doocey’s Oriel Bar who have generously sponsored the race once again this year. Starting at 7.30 p.m., the entries will be taken in the local community centre from 6.30 p.m. After the race showers and changing will be available in the community centre and then it’s over to Doocey’s Bar for the refreshments and the prize-giving.  

With only two races left in the series, there are a number of athletes on target to complete all of the ten race programme and will receive an award for this feat courtesy of our sponsors and of course for those runners who complete 5 from the 10 races they will receive a 30 euro voucher for SKINS product at Ger Wyley Sports. Looking through the division tables for the overall series many of the divisions are very close at the moment so the Ballymac race will be a very important race for many to seal their fate on those divisional tables. The entry fee is just 5 euro (where would you get it). Thanks to all our friends in Ballymacarbry for their efforts once again this year making it possible to hold this race. The course records here are held by Pauline Lambe of Tullamore Harriers AC 29.48 set in 2010 and a brand new course record set last year 2012 by David Mc Carthy West Waterford AC 23.55  for the men.
