Youghal’s Emer Casey Road Race Almost Here

By Claire O’Donoghue


The Annual Emer Casey Memorial 5km Road Race is taking place on Thursday, 4 April at 8pm. This is always a highly popular event for a very worthy cause which is close to the hearts of the Youghal Community.

Registration will open at 5.30pm on the day in Youghal Community Centre. Pre-registration forms are available online, which all participants are encouraged to use in an effort to speed up the process. The registration fee is €10. Those walking the course will be setting off at 6.30pm again this year from Bunscoil Mhuire in O’Brien’s Place, with runners leaving the starting blocks at 8pm sharp. For insurance reasons, participants are limited to those over 16 years of age.

There will be prizes for the top 4 men and top 4 women with refreshments and prize-giving directly after the race at Youghal community Centre.
