Reminder...Passage West 10k race is on Fri 25th Apr

Just a reminder that the Passage West Community 10k road race is coming up on Friday evening the 25th of April at 7:30pm.

It's easy to think these 'races' just happen but behind the scenes there are weeks and months of preparation for just one evening. The various sporting clubs in the town have come together to host this race with the aim of raising funds for the Cork City Hospitals Children's Club.

Even groups that would not normally have no involvement in road races are helping out. For example only last night, the local tidy towns group were out cleaning up parts of the route that run through the town. The only thing that is needed now are for the runners to turn up and support this worthy cause.

The race has an Athletics Ireland permit and has been properly measured by Jones Counter.
