Get the runners on for St Joseph's

There'll be fun for all the family as Barraduff Couch to 5k combines with Gneeveguilla Athletic Club for a Santa Fun Run/Walk/Skip next month.

It all takes place in aid of St Joseph's Day Care Centre in Rathmore. The event is billed for December 15, with registration from 9am at Barraduff community field and centre ahead of a 10am start.

The aim is to help develop a sensory garden/mindfulness area, and to complement the feel-good factor behind the event, dressing up in festive attire or bringing your pet along for the journey would be more than welcome.

There will also be a short course of 2.5 kilometres on offer, with plenty prizes to keep the more competitive among us happy.

To take part, it's €7 for adults, €4 for children, and €12 for families - with hot drinks available afterwards, just for good measure.
