The 5th Annual Mayo AC Summer 5k Series sponsored by C&C Cellular starts on Tuesday evening 17th June. Registration (6:30-7:50pm) for the Series of five races is 30 euro, and 7 euro for individual races. Organisers ask for your co-operation at registration. They will appreciate that you arrive early, and have the exact money. As warmer weather is forecast you are advised to hydrate well before race start. The 5k Series and our Move2Improve Series was launched recently at Balla. Marie Fitchett, Area Manager C&C Cellular was there to renew their continued support for the club’s 2014 initiatives.
Following the launch we had a club meeting at the No Name Club, where we reviewed the year so far and discussed plans for the remainder of 2014.

As usual the Summer Series is open to all, but with an emphasis on Fit4Life runners joggers and walkers. Many have taken their “first steps” in these events in previous years. Local athletic clubs and fitness groups are very welcome. This year the Series will complement our Move2Improve events which are also open to all. All courses are AAI measured/permitted, well marshaled with finish line time clock. The five races provide a variety of courses and challenges. A great opportunity to record a better time each week so you are encouraged to participate in all five.
The emphasis is on fun for all.
Mayo AC encourage as many members as possible to take part or to assist as volunteers.
