The Joe Grinsell 100km Challange

Clonmel A.C. will be honouring one of its finest athletes, Joe Grinsell, who died so tragically last year, with a 100k Challenge. Joe was a brilliant Club member who was always willing to help the Club in any way possible. He was great at supporting all the Club events whether it was at competing or helping with stewarding at their events. With this is mind Clonmel A.C. are setting everyone a Challenge for 2014, the Joe Grinsell 100K Challenge. During 2014 the Club will be organising 29 races with a combined distance of 170 Kms. All these races have been granted an Athletics Ireland Race Permit. The distances of these races range from 4k to Half Marathon but if you select the right races you can achieve this Challenge by just running distances of 4k to 6K and these are spread throughout 2014, So are you up for this Challenge? If you are and if you achieve the 100k you will receive a Long Sleeve Training top, the Joe Grinsell 100k Challenge specially designed to mark your achievement.
There is no Entry Fee for this Challenge. All you have to do is enter the races as normal and Clonmel A.C will look after the rest. For further details please contact Niall O Sullivan at 086 1660888.  See List of Races here.
