Ballindine 4 mile road race – Saturday June 23rd

Ballindine 4 mile road race - Saturday June 23rd

The annual Ballindine 4 mile road race will be held next Saturday (June 23rd). This is the fourth year the event has been organised by the inimitable David “Forrest Sump” Huane.

The event is open to people of all ages and abilities, so why not test your mettle against the infamous hills of Garryduff?! One famous resident of Garryduff – Jimmy Kilkenny – is rumoured to be the pacemaker for the elite athletes (or is that, would need a pacemaker if he attempted to keep up with an elite athlete?).

The race has a nice twist, with participants able to predict their own time. The winners will be determined by those participants who complete the 4 miles closest to their prediction! The slowest entrant as an opportunity to win! The one rule is that no watches are allowed (tripping, biting, hair pulling is all perfectly acceptable…).

The entry fee is €15, and the total prize pool is €300. All proceeds will be donated to Western Alzheimers. Participants can either register online anytime at www.runireland.com or on the day in the Ballindine Community Centre. Registration on the day opens at 4:30pm, with the walkers starting at 6:30pm and runners at 7pm.

All enquiries to David Huane (087-9272242). Please support this worthy cause.

Stewards are also needed for the race, if interested please contact David on the number above. Stewarding is only expected to take about 90 minutes!
