Mayo AC are delighted to present the inaugural Foxford 4 Miler in memory of our friends Ann Murray & Mickey Ruane, both stalwarts of our club who tragically passed away in the last few years.
This course is a flat and fast course, which bodes well for speedy times on the day. This route for this event has sentimental significance for both Ann & Mickey. They competed in a 4 mile race in 2006. On that day there were just 12 competitors. Mickey’s wife Mary was also a competitor, while Ann’s husband Paddy drove the lead car – a real family affair. Current Mayo AC chairman John Byrne won the race in a lifetime best time of 19.53. Can anyone smash this record on September 25th?
We are delighted to support the Family Centre in Castlebar, all proceeds (excluding event expenditure) will go directly to this valuable local service.
The Family Centre provides Counselling services, Suicide Bereavement liaison services, Flourish Social Prescribing along with many other supports. All donations stay locally to aid people in Mayo receive the supports they need.
We are very grateful to our extremely generous sponsors Pamex Ltd, John O’Donnell’s Pharmacy, Season Master Double Glazing Ltd & O’Hara’s Bakery.
