The second annual Scoil Ailbhe CBS primary school Fun Run/Walk takes place this Friday evening starting from Sempe Stadium opposite Thurles Greyhound Stadium.
Walkers will be setting off at 6:30pm while the runners will hit the road at 7:00pm. Registration will be in Scoil Ailbhe from 5:00pm onwards and entry costs just 10 Euro for adults, 2 Euro for secondary school pupils, or 20 Euro for a family. Primary school children are free of charge once accompanied by an adult.
This was a fabulous event last year in Thurles with a very large field enjoying the wonderful atmosphere generated by parents, past pupils, pupils, staff and friends of Scoil Ailbhe.
And, the hard working committee members are determined to ensure that the 2014 event will be even bigger and better with a different route selected taking in Castlemeadows, Racecourse Road, Killinan, Seskin, The Heath, Knockeen, Holycross road, Abbey Road, Kennedy Park and back to Semple Stadium opposite Thurles Greyhound Stadium.
Refreshements, which were the talk of the town last year, will again be available in Scoil Ailbhe after the race, where participants can enjoy the celebrations, discuss their times, or any other topics which may crop up, and perhaps catch up on former classmates in the school.
Thie is the second year of the event and an open invitation is extended to all to come along. See you there.
