Large entry expected for Newmarket 5k Classic Road Race

A RECORD number of entries are expected for the the popular Duhallow AC Road Race on its return for a Classic 5km Road Race in Newmarket on Sunday, December 23 commencing at 1pm.

Last season, Alan O'Shea from Bantry maintained a consistent run of performances on capturing outright honours from a strong and representative field that added an international dimension to the proceedings

"We 've a tough task to repeat the outstanding success of previous quality fields and hopefully the weather will be favourable. Plans for this season's race were set in motion a number of months ago", said Donie Shine, Chairman of the host Duhallow AC club.

Some of the foremost athletes from across the province including a big Cork and Kerry entry are expected as are those across the remainder of Munster to be amongst the entry listing for the race over a fast course.

"To meet popular demand, we 've reduced the distance to a 5km event over a measured circuit of Newmarket town", said Mr. Shine.

Senior race organisers are Donie Shine (0868149970), Ger Murphy (029-60719), Jerry Twomey (086-8050821) or John Sexton 086 3409744 or email sexton.john@hotmail.com
