Clew Bay Half Marathon

Note here from our colleagues in Louisburgh GAA, who are on a major fund-raising drive for their pitch development at the minute.

Hi All,
Please pass on to anyone in your club who might be interested….the race is being run as a fundraiser for Louisburgh GAA pitch development. Many thanks.

The third annual Clew Bay half marathon will take place on Saturday July 20th, 2013.  The race will start and finish in Louisburgh in Co. Mayo on the south coast of Clew Bay. The course will be run over a variety of landscapes ranging from north Connemara bogland to winding seaside roadways overlooking Clare Island and south Clew Bay. The course is challenging and exhilarating, it’s winding roads and ever changing scenery making it a very enjoyable run.
This year’s event will be bigger and more exciting. The race itself will be chipped timed by Redtag timing. As per last year ample car parking will be provided as well as hot shower facilities after the race. All contestants will and very popular home made refreshments, hot or cold drinks after the race.
There will be prizes for overall male and female winners as well as category prizes for male and female over 40 and over 50. Registration will cost €40 per person. All entrants will receive a top quality technical tee shirt and a finishers medal. The race is being organised as a fundraiser for a local Astroturf facility as well as other local charities.
