On Sunday October 14th at 11am people of all ages and fitness levels are invited to Commercials Hurling Club to take part in fun run under the supervision of Olympian runner, John Treacy. The event will be a short 5k course that will finish back at the clubhouse for entertainment celebrating everything Irish.
“Rás Ráth Cúil 5k is a great example of encouraging families to get fit together and use their cúpla focail. Exercise is so beneficial for people of all ages and it’s great to see community initiatives encouraging people, particularly those who wouldn’t usually run, to lace-up and take on the challenge,” commented local Councillor, Emer Higgins.
“Taking part in the event will be John Treacy and also Giggles the clown who will be encouraging people to chat as Ghaeilge along the route. Commercials Hurling Club plays an important and positive role in our community and their committee is fantastic for promoting fitness, an Ghaeilge agus an cultúr. Get your running shoes on and mark 14th October in your diary! You can register online through popupraces.com searching for commercials and ras 5k,” said Cllr. Emer Higgins.
Cllr. Emer Higgins, Deirdre Ní Mheachair, Lorraine Ui Bhriain and Anne Walsh Dixon of Commercials Hurling Club
