Tuam AC 8K Road Race


Sunday, January 11th @ 3PM Entries are flying in for the 5th running of the Tuam AC New Year 8K Road Race which will take place this Sunday the 11th of January 2009 @ 3PM. We are using the same fast flat accurately measured course where many PB’s have been set and some great battles fought including the epic 2007 contest between All Ireland Champions and running legends Gerry Ryan and Paul McNamara and last years masterclass in running from newly crowned National Marathon Champion and Olympian Maria McCambridge, who smashed the women’s course record and finished in 5th place overall in a very strong field of runners.

New for 2009 includes online entries which are now open here, and a top class gift of running gear for all athletes.

Entry is still only €15 and there is a fantastic range of category prizes including First 3 Men and Women, and category prizes for winners of all age groups including M40,45,50,55,60,65 and 70 and Women 35,40,45,50,55,60 and 65.

Walkers are especially welcome in 2009 and the famous Tuam hospitality including tons of the legendary fruit cake and tea and coffee will be provided.
