Notice...7th Annual CIT Floodlight Cross Country - Fri 11th Dec 2015

Most of the cross country races on the calendar are inter club only and are not open to non-club runners. For this unique event on the CIT grounds on Friday evening the 11th of December 2015, anyone can take part.

As you can see on the photo below, the course is on very short grass so it's not the usual type of cross country race with hills and mud. As such, people do not need spikes or any type of special shoes to take part and you can wear your usual runners if you want to.

From the organisers...The 7th Annual “Floodlight” Cross Country Run in CIT on the 11th Dec @ 7pm.
This is a truly unique event-(The only one in Ireland)

The Men’s Run is 5km and the Ladies Run is 3km and is once again sponsored by The Edge Sports Shop.

This is a Charitable event and the benefactors will be “Make a Wish Foundation” & “SOUND – Sufferers Of Unique Narcolepsy Disorder

Registration is from 5.30pm on the Night and the Cost is €5.

This event is perfect for both the experienced athletes as well as the person who is trying Cross Country for the first time. Flat course, mostly ran around the playing pitches in CIT.

Registration will take pace upstairs in the main GAA stand, on the side furthest away from the college.

Refreshments provided afterwards.

Hi folk's, I am training the CIT Sigerson Squad this year on Pitches 3 and 4. They are starting to cut up, so if you have spikes, bring them.

Brilliant race. Delighted it is back for another year. It's one of the only XC races I run every year.

Why is the distance different for men and women?

It's the same at club county, Munster and National XC level. So I'm guessing the organisers are following the same blueprint.
