The whole purpose of running the Sligo Credit Union Road Race League is to get
as many people out as possible for as many races as possible, and to try to give
acknowledgement to all the people who take part.
The league, even though it will be competitive, should allow every person taking part
to maximize their potential, and hopefully, see some improvement in their overall
health and fitness as the league goes on.
There are 30 prizes, of which each person will be only allowed to win one. If funds
allow, more prizes may be added.
The scoring system will hopefully make it accessible for as many people as possible,
and will also make it competitive at the top, as there will be relatively little difference
between coming first or second etc .
