Following on from the success of last year’s sixth Malin Road Races, INISH Pharmacy are delighted to once again sponsor the 5K Road Race and the Malin Mile. This year we are again running a senior and a Juvenile Malin Mile.
Once again, in addition to €100 personal prize money, the First Male and First Female back for the Malin Mile (winners) will earn €100 for their Athletic Club – SO IF THEY WIN, THE CLUB WINS!
The Senior Malin Mile @ 11.00am – Sunday 26th July 2015
The Senior Mile starts in Malin Town. The runners run out over the bridge. They then turn half a mile out and run back in to town again – turn left and again finish at the phone box.
The Junior Malin Mile @ 11.05am – Sunday 26th July 2015
The Junior Mile follows the same route as the Juvenile Mile race. The runners run out over the bridge. They then turn half a mile out and run back in to town again – turn left and again finish at the phone box.
Malin 5K @ 11.30am. (Walkers not only welcome but encouraged) – – Sunday 26th July 2015
The 5K Race will follow the same course route as previous years. It will start outside Malin Town on the Culdaff Road. The runners will run out of town towards Ballyboe. They will then turn left and run up towards the Malin – Glengad Road. Once at the road the will again turn left and run back downhill towards the town. The finish line is at the telephone box.
There is a €10 race entry for all participants. ALL the entry fee money goes directly to the RNLI. INISH Pharmacy contributes the Prize money – and we are delighted to do so and support these events and the RNLI. Inishowen Athletics supplies the Junior Mile Race medals.
JUNIOR MILE @ 11am
There will be Gold, Silver & Bronze Medals for the first 3 in each of the juvenile age categories (under 13, 15 and 17 male and female). In keeping with Athletics Ireland guidelines, for a juvenile to be under 13 they must not be 13 on or before
the 31st December 2015. In other words, they must be 11 or 12 in all of 2015 and not 13 until 2014. The same applies to all the other age groups.
The current Junior Race Record was set last year by Ben Ferran (Lagan Valley AC) and is 5 minutes and 23 seconds. The current Female Junior Race Record was set last year by Mary Teresa Doherty (Inishowen AC) and is 6 minutes and 12 seconds
