The captains handicap run will take place on Saturday December 24th at 12pm in Walshtown Wood. This is a 4 mile single circuit on track road through forestry. It will not be muddy. The slowest runners go off first and others are released on a phased basis in time order. Each runner must give an honest pace per mile at entry. Entry fee is €5 and ALL of this is going directly to Saint Vincent De Paul charity. There will be tea and cakes etc supplied after the race. Directions: go to East Cork golf club but do not turn right for the clubhouse – go straight on towards the Elfordstown mast. Stay on this road for about 3 miles. (at about 1.5 miles you come to a V where you bear right). You come to a T junction, turn right and then turn immediately left. After 2 miles you will come to the wood and watch for the first wood entrance on the right – Edmonds blue transit bus will be parked here. This is the start and finish point. The road is narrow so cars will have to park in other wood entrances up the road ( 3 in total, furthest 2 are ¼ mile away.)
We need 2 helpers – one for entries and another for finish times.
SO: come on, do your bit for charity before you hit the Christmas pud!
