Enniscrone is getting ready to host a unique athletics event which promises to be fun-filled and challenging this October.
The inaugural Enniscrone Surf and Turf Fun run will take place on Saturday, October 25th (the October Bank Holiday weekend) at 12 noon.
The run, hosted by the Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA club, will incorporate all that is good about the locality – scenic views, rugged terrain and great community spirit.
This event gives clubs across a wide range of disciplines the opportunity to compete for a terrific prize – a €500 sports voucher, kindly sponsored by Coleman Electronic Ltd.
Teams of five may enter, with the first full team across the line deemed the winners.
For any participating club, this event offers the ultimate team bonding experience at the end of a long season, or with a view to future competitions.
There are also individual competitions with men’s and ladies sections, as well as a slightly altered course (3k) for competitors aged 14-16. There will be prizes awarded to the first, second and third individual in each of these categories.
Teams of 5 - €100
Adults - €20
Youths - €10 (14-16 years of age)
Registration forms can be downloaded from our club website, www.enniscronekilglassgaa.com or from our Facebook page (EnniscroneKilglass GAA).
Registration will take place on Friday night (24th October) from 7.00pm to 9.00pm in the Diamond Coast Hotel Enniscrone, and on Saturday morning (25th October) in the Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA clubhouse from 10.00am to 11.45am.
The route is set in the scenic Quigabar area, with the starting and finishing point at the Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA club grounds. The loop route brings competitors down 1 kilometre of public road, followed by 1 kilometre of shoreline and then through 3 kilometres of demanding cross country terrain which will include several obstacles.
This course will test all our competitors and entertain our spectators, as participants attempt to negotiate a landscape that will test their wits. Above all, though, fun will be at the centre of our event with each participating team or individual guaranteed a rewarding afternoon, and a great start to your bank holiday weekend.
