Hollymount Road Races

Submitted by Tom Hunt

When the trees are almost bare, and starry starry nights and frosty mornings return, it must be time for Hollymount Road Races. Yes, the 46th version of this legendary Annual International event takes place next Sunday 13th November.

There will be three races around the familiar testing 3k circuit. Many famous names in Irish
athletics have done battle here over the years and once again a top
class field is expected from clubs around the province and further
afield as well as the traditional coachload from the Liverpool area.

The race format has not changed much over the years, and is typical of
many races around the country that originated in the ’60s & ’70s.

Prize presentation for 2011 Mayo AC C&C Cellular Road League will
preceed the Hollymount races presentation.
