Despite the inclement weather conditions prior to the event with Hurricane Ophelia and Storm Brian, the day of the race was a lovely calm autumn’s morning.  Registrations have been higher year on year with this year being the most, ensuring yet again, a successful event.

The hard working Committee, set the plans in motion for this event in August, regular meetings were held, and each committee member was given a job, there fore everything went very smoothly on the day.  Mr. Brian O’ Reilly; Head of the Sports Department in Tullow Community School and a parent, was of invaluable assistance by encouraging all the students and teachers to participate in this event whilst also working very hard on the day.

Mr. Thornton, (Principal), teachers, parents, grandparents, past members and students, as well as other family members all took part.  Also included were many members of the different Athletic & Running Clubs in the surrounding area and their support is greatly appreciated.

Mr. William Paton (Cathaoirleach) popped in to show his support to this local community event, to everyone’s delight.

Prizes were awarded on the day, to the first lady & gent, first male and female student, teacher and principal to mention but a few and to add to the spirit of the day there was even a competition for a student to beat Mr. O’Reilly, which he awards himself.

The Parents’ Association are most grateful to Morgan’s Medical Hall, Tullow (main sponsor) who has given such great support over the past three years.  They also wish to thank those who donated prizes and helped in any way prior to or on the day of the event, to those who registered and those who took part in the race.  And also a sincere thanks to Mr. Paul Thornton and the staff for all their help and support.
