Fun Run 2pm Sunday 10th Sept

The club are holding a Family Fun Run/Jog/Walk on Sunday 10th September @ 2pm. Registration will take place from 1pm at JMS motors on the Ballyglass Road on the day of the event.   We have now over 330 registered juvenile members and any monies raised will go towards the development of our underage structures within the club.  With this in mind we chose this fun run as a way of involving as many people as possible in a healthy activity while raising funds for the juvenile section of the club. It is hoped that runners and walkers of all levels will participate.  We would ask those taking part to please obey the marshals and rules of the road at all times. Could those driving to the event please park in one of the car parks in town to avoid causing hazzards along the route. The route for the event is starting at the top of the Ballyglass road, continue on past Church view estate, Carnalecka turn right, Clongowla turn right and keep on Congowla road (Bog Road) until the finish line in Abbey Street.
