Info evening...Preparing for your first 5k...Wed 23rd July 2014

If you are just starting off running or have plans to start then should be of interest to you. As part of the new Rebel Run4Fun 5k series in Ballincollig in July, August and September, the Cork Sports Partnership have organised an information evening on preparing for your first 5k race.

WHEN: Wednesday July 23rd 2014.
WHERE: The Runners Loft, Mahers Sports, Oliver Plunket Street, Cork City
TIME: 6.30pm - 8.30pm.
FOR WHO: Everyone, beginners especially welcome or those taking part in their first 5k.
€5 booking fee- Pre-Register HERE.
(If you have already registered for the series entry is FREE-just email churley AT to book your place) or contact Claire on 021 4665083 to find out more.

One of the speakers on the night will be Noel Berkeley who represented Ireland at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. Noel has also won the Ballycotton 10 numerous times over the years and has a best time of 47:17 for the 10 mile course.

Note that the entry fee is only €5. If you enter all 3 races in the Rebel Run4Fun 5k Series then it's free.

Many of you will have seen 'running classes' being advertised on posters or on the net. A typical price might be something like €45 for 10 classes or €5 per class. Compare that to the price of this short seminar where you'll be advised by a former Olympic athlete. Any hints or tips that you'll pick up will be well worth it as you start your running career.

This talk would also be very suitable for any women who have their eye on the Womens mini-marathon coming up in September.

Note the date...Wed 23rd July.
