Mini-run takes place in Tinahely
A mini version of the recent 5k/8k fun run and walk that took place in Tinahely will happen on Saturday, August 30, to facilitate participants who were unavailable on the original day.
Organiser Wayne O'Driscoll said that he was overwhelmed by the massive 260 turnout and said that many others who were unable to make the first run had asked him to hold a second event so that they too could take part.
'We had much more than we expected so it was great,' explained local man Wayne, who will be presenting all the proceeds to Our Lady's Hospital, Crumlin on August 30,' he said. 'Anyone who had sponsorship cards but couldn't run on the first day will be coming along to run it the second time around.'
Registration takes place at the local hall at 3 p.m. with the run starting at 4 p.m. For information, call Wayne at (086) 2005652.
