The Poulmucka Sports & Social club received a great boost this week with the announcement that Catherina McKiernan will attend the Poulmucka 5 mile on May 20.
In an added dimension to the race this year the club will hold a 5km along the same route for women who meet and train as novice athletes. This group meet each Monday night and some start from walking to eventually jogging.
Catherina McKiernan will be holding a course locally on the same weekend as the race and has agreed to attend Poulmucka to advise these girls in their techniques and styles of running. She will hang around to mingle after the race and allow for some photo opportunities.
The race has grown from strength to strength and this venture would not have been possible without the efforts of South Tipp Sports Partnership and Clonmel AC along with the hard working committee and ladies catering group.
The Chairman,Tom Cahill is looking forward to a huge turnout again this year and with €200 for a team prize outside of the individual winners we are sure to see some personal bests along the usual course.
