The change from a Saturday to midweek which was introduced in 2011 has proved to be as success and the Leitrim Gaels Community playing fields a popular venue with excellent facilities for both the Races and the Walks.

The events, which are set at Connacht level are, Third & fourth Class: Girls 800m, Boys 800m; Fifth & Sixth Class: Girls 1000m, Boys 1000m; Girls & Boys Walk 1000m.

The first three teams in each event will qualify for the Connacht Championships to be held in Longford on Saturday October 12. It is expected that this competition will be held in Moyne. Full details will be sent to the Schools and entries will be taken on the day.
