This event takes place on a military training facility. Along with all the normal safety precautions extra care is necessary in this area.

Irish Junior Squad (IJS)
This year there will also be the annual fundraiser for the Irish Junior Squad. “ROSIES KITCHEN” will be open and hot beverages and baked goods will be available – (ideally after your run).
The funds raised at this event are used throughout the year to support the IJS and their activities.
Your support is much appreciated.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Kilworth on Sunday.
It is a well-known fact that you can offset this run against the likely overindulgence of the next few weeks!!!!
