Tuam 8KM may sell out - get those entries in

Published in Other News on 15th January 2013

The Tuam 8k Road Race (this Sunday - 20 January) is expected to attract a record attendance as online entries are already well ahead of last year. We had 600 entries last year and we have been advised by Athletics Ireland that we have insurance for 1000 participants but that figure includes the kids fun run and we are expecting 150 - 200 children to take part.

As a result entries for the 8k race will close as soon as we reach the 1000 mark. We are limiting the kids fun run to 200 entries and this will result in a limit of 800 for the 8k race. Please advise club members, friends, colleagues etc that this event could sell out.

We do not want to turn anybody away on Sunday or leave anybody disappointed and would advise online entry ASAP to ensure your place. Enter via www.tuamac.com or www.runireland.com.

We have also managed to get another delivery of socks and will now have socks for the first 500 entrants but we have emptied the warehouse and shop and cannot get any more.

As of today we have almost 400 entries and there are still five days until the race.

On behalf of Tuam AC we would like to sincerely thank everybody for the outstanding support of our race.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday.

Brendan Monaghan - Tuam AC.
