The call is still out for help with stewarding etc for the Baxter event, so you can support our fundraiser whether running or not.

Sign up now online at http://www.runireland.com/…/mayo-ac-baxter-streets-castlebar , 250 t-shirts on offer. You can see the route here http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/644295140
After that it’s back to Ballyhaunis on Tuesday 2nd June for the second 5k Series race, and then on to Ballindine on Sat 6th for Guess Your Own Time 4 mile in aid of Cystic Fibrosis. Our member Dave Huane is a lead organiser there and will welcome your support in the ‘race with a difference’. Always a great spread afterwards and lots of prizes. Details of all these events are on our calendar.
A reminder too to those who intend competing in the National Half Marathon – send your details to Trisha by 1st June.
