Strawberry Half Marathon, 8th June 2014


Hosted by Slaney Olympic AC. Reduced Entry Fees The fifth Strawberry Half Marathon takes place on 8th June. As usual there will also be a 5 Mile race and a 15K Walk. The event is hosted this year by Slaney Olympic AC as a club fundraiser. It offers great value for money with pre-entry for the half marathon only €25 and just €15 for the other two distances.

Jane and Graham Porter who head the club’s race committee guarantee the same professional standard event as previously. All finishers receive a medal and a specially commissioned Strawberry mug (some of you may remember that we had a mug in 2010, the first year of the race). There will also be tea/coffee in the Riverside Park Hotel after the race. RedTag timing will provide the chip timing and there will be pacers in the half marathon at 1.30, 1.45 and 2 hours. We will also have music and race commentary at the start/finish area which is on the Promenade on the banks of the River Slaney. We have a very generous prize fund. Full details can be found on our club website: www.slaneyolympic.com Online entry is open until next Thursday, 5th June. You can also enter over the weekend of the race (see details on our club website or on our Facebook page). We would like to thank our sponsors for this year’s race: Donohoe Mini, Quarrypark, Enniscorthy; My Sport, Castle Street, Enniscorthy; Brooks Shoes and Sam McCauley Pharmacy Group.
