The annual ‘Last Turkey In The Shop’ 5 mile Road Race and Walk will be held on Sunday 8th December. The start and finish will be at Aura Leisure Centre at 11:00 with registration from 09:00 at the Sports Complex. Showers, car parking,refreshments, music and masseurs will be available on the day.
The nominated charity for the event will be the Irish Cancer Society and this is the culmination of 6 years of fund raising from the Carrick races and associated events. Last years successful event featured ‘Primes’ at each Mile with Turkeys as prizes and this year there will be Christmas Hampers; prizes for age groups from 40 to 80 and a prize draw. Most runners wore their Christmas finest last year and the North West Simon Community will be on hand to provide racing Santa hats for a donation on the day.  
The overall winner last year was Clive Glancy of local club Carrick A.C but he will be hard pressed this year by last year’s team winners Sligo A.C. who are bringing the in form Richard Gorman to challenge him.
