We held our first club Fun Run/Walk on Sunday 10th September and we had over 130 brave souls turn out on a pretty wet day. Well done to those who made it around running, walking, cycling or some even managed it pushing a buggy, it really was a very enjoyable event. We hope to make this an annual event in the club.
Thanks to all our stewards who helped out on the day, making sure everyone was safe was our main priority. Thanks to Anthony McCormack for providing the sound system and leading us around the course. Thanks to the Order of Malta Ireland – Ambulance Corps – Ballinrobe for being on hand. Thanks to Conor Keane of Momentum Performance for ensuring we were all properly stretched and raring to go. Thanks to J.J. Burke Car Sales for the provision of two vans to help with transport and allowing us take shelter when we were doing registration. A special thanks to Padraig Marrey who provided signs, timing clock and most importantly was always available to provide advice on how to organise the fun run.
