Race notice...Ardmore 5 mile road race - Fri 9th Aug 2013

The tenth and final race in the Ger Wyley Sports/SKINS Summer Series is coming on Friday, the 9th of August at 7:30pm.

Notes from the organisers...West Waterford AC...
The final race of the summer series is almost upon us with the tenth and final race taking place on Friday night, August 9th at 7.30 pm, the 18th annual “An Tobar” Ardmore 5. Entries for the race will be taken at the GAA centre in Ardmore. The entry fee is just 5 euro (where would you get it) and the presentation of prizes along with refreshments will take place in “An Tobar”, courtesy of our race sponsor. Along with the prizes for the race the overall summer series presentation will take place and the Michael Hogan memorial cup will be presented to this year’s series winner.


At West Waterford AC we like to spread around the prizes as much as possible and so this race has a different prize policy to other races. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female athletes and after that prizes will be awarded to the first male and female athletes in each of the star signs. When registering for the race, all athletes will be asked to declare their star sign and when the results are made out, the first female and male in each of the star signs will get a prize. Also on the night the Men’s winner of the race will be presented with the Veronica Ryan memorial cup and the Ladies winner will receive the Noel Faherty memorial cup also.


As Ardmore is the final race in the series, the vouchers for all those that have entered the series and are eligible will be presented on the night.  Anyone who has run any 5 of the ten races will automatically receive a 30 euro voucher and anyone who has run all ten races will be awarded a special gift, thanks to our very generous sponsors Ger Wyley Sports and SKINS

Ardmore is located just off the N25 Cork to Dungarvan road and is within easy easy to runners in both Cork and Waterford. (Just look for the signposts for the R673 road to Ardmore)

Entries will be taken at the local GAA grounds which is just north of Ardmore. Please note that the start line is about 1 km away so leave plenty of time to enter and to get to the start of the race.
