The Munster Senior & Novice Road Championships of 2013 take place on Sunday 10-Mar-2013 at 1pm in Newtownshandrum, Co. Cork. Race H.Q. for the day will be the Newtownshandrum GAA Grounds. This is a 4 Mile race over a popular course previously used in the Ballyhoura 5 Mile series. Club teams can have up to 12 athletes per team with 4 to score. Please note that this is an AAI event, so participants will be required to wear the club singlet. Novice and Senior athletes representing Cork will receive a county singlet on the day.
The Novice & Senior Roads is a combined event. Novice means exactly what it says on the tin; i.e. open to athletes of all levels of ability. Last year’s Munster Senior & Novice Roads was held in Inniscarra, Co. Cork. A total of 37 club members turned up at the Ballyanly GAA grounds to collect their race numbers, the biggest turnout for an AAI event in 2012. Our Novice Ladies A & B teams came home in first and second place, while the Novice Men were runner’s up. Once again, the club is targeting this event as an opportunity for BARRS athletes to pick up some of those prized blue-ribbon medals and a chance to put all those hard training sessions to good use.
Athletes participating in these championships must be registered (paid-up) club members for 2013. Please text or email your entries to the competition secretary [firstname.lastname@example.org] as soon as possible.
