10th GOAL mile a huge success

The 10th annual GOAL MILE took place in Doneraile Park on Christmas morning and a large crowd attended.

The organisers were very pleased with the turnout as the weather was a little on the cool side. With the Park itself looking very festive under a light frost, the number of people who took part was up on previous years.

This event is now firmly established on the calendar for many of families and is used as a meeting point to exchange Christmas greetings. Many local runners used the occasion as a training run before taking part in other races which were held in Belgooly, Bandon and other venues over the Christmas and New Year holidays. Members of Mallow Athletic Club were on hand to greet everyone and hand out completion certificates.
