First Graded Meeting – Mardyke Track

Monday, May 31st, 2010
Date & Start Time Venue Events
Tuesday 01 June, 7pm Mardyke Track 200m, 1500m, Long Jump, Shot, 4×400m Relay

Just to remind everybody that the first of the Graded Track & Field Meetings 2010 starts Tuesday 01 June, 7pm at the UCC Mardyke Track. That’s right, MARDYKE - don’t go to CIT!

Keep in mind that these are graded meetings and thus open to people of all level of ability. It should be a fun night out for all – except of course the organisers. Entry €2.00 on the night.

Can’t find a babysitter? Bring the kids along too. There’s lots of available seating in the stand offering a great view of the track. Sadly, the stand is due for demolition in the near future, so make the most of it while it’s still around.

Best of luck to all St. Finbarr’s A.C. athletes who are lining up for next Monday’s marathon.  Between marathon and relay runners the club will be very well represented on the roads around Cork so wear the club vest with pride and to all supporters and friends don’t forget to shout “Comon’ the Barr’s” when you see clubmates passing by.

We will gather afterwards for our traditional post event refreshments in Clancy’s Bar, Princes Street.
