The course is flat and fast, which bodes well for speedy times on the day.
The race route for this event has sentimental significance for both Ann & Mickey – they both competed in a 4 mile race on the same course in 2006 – which passes through their home village of Rinnaney.
On that day there were just 12 competitors including Mickey’s wife, Mary, while Ann’s husband Paddy drove the lead car – a real family affair.
Current Mayo AC chairman, John Byrne, ran a lifetime best 4 mile time of 19.53 on that day. Can anyone smash this record on September 25th?
