The Olympics may have finished, but the running continues in Dromahair next Sunday, August 19, when the annual Dromahair 4 Mile run and walk takes place at 3:00.
This will be Race eighth in the Filan’s Centra/Sligo Credit Union Road Race League. As usual, this popular event is organised by local runners in association with North Leitrim Athletic Club. The race, which has an AAI permit, starts and finishes on Dromahair’s Main Street. Registration will take on place on the day in the function room in The Blue Devon bar, Dromahair, from 1pm, with a €10 entry fee. Walkers and runners of all abilities are encouraged to participate.
There will be lots of trophies to be won in a wide selection of categories. As well as the main four mile race, there will also be the usual selection of children’s races, which start at the earlier time of 2pm. The entry fee for the children’s races is €3, and every child that takes part will receive a medal. Refreshments and prize giving will take place after the main race in the function room in The Blue Devon.
The proceeds from this year’s Dromahair 4 Mile Run and Walk will go towards the Dromahair Community Playschool. For further information call Tom or Violet Cullen, telephone 071-9134697.
