Christmas Races

The 2018 MSB Christmas Races take place before Christmas from 11:00 in Porterstown Park. There are three races:

  • Doyle Cup - Adults and Older Juniors - 6 Mile Cross Country - Guest runners are welcome
  • Robert Foley Shield - Some U13s and Above Age Group - 3 Mile Cross Country
  • Sheila Brennan Trophy - Some U13s and Below Age Group - 1 Mile Cross Country

All races are handicap style races with a staggered start based on ability (meaning everyone has a chance to win). Note that U13s are allocated to a race by their coaching team. 

Please arrive no later than 10.30am as the races starts at 11am. The race will then be followed by an awards ceremony at 12.15pm.

All adult entrants must ensure they contact Eugene Brady on 087-673-2210, to register for the race. The parents of any kids participating should contact their coach to let them know they are racing so handicaps can be worked out in advance.
