Shamrock Prequel Friday evening

posted 30 May 2013, 00:02 by Rob McEvoy

Just a reminder for everyone coming to the Shanrock O-Ringen in Killarney this weekend; for those of you who make the effort of getting down early enough Friday evening, KerryO are hosting a warm-up charity fun event in Ross Island.

The event will be signposted from the race course on the Ross Road.
Registration will be in the car park nearest Ross Castle & Island on the left-hand-side of the approach road. Registration opens at 6pm with starts from 6:30pm to 8pm. Start & finish will be adjacent to registration.

There will be three courses on offer, as follows:

Long: 5.00 km
Medium: 3.10 km
Short: 2.35 km

To liven things up a little bit(!), the long course will use a pursuit format with two people started at a time on a star course with gaffled mini-loops. For maximum fun, intending competitors are advised to pair up in advance with a friend/foe of similar ability!!

The entry fees are €10 for adults, €7.50 concessions (students, unwaged, >65's), €5 <18's and €25 for families.

And most importantly of all, 100% of your entry fees will be donated to the Children's Medical & Research Foundation to help fund the completion of essential upgrades to Crumlin Hospital's cancer and cardiac facilities so please help ensure a very good turnout!
