PREPARATIONS are well underway for the annual CBS The Green 5k and 3k Fun Runs which take place at the end of the month.

The school will host the event for the fourth time and organisers Helen Kelliher and Karen Tobin, both teachers at the school, are looking forward to another great family event, which has raised over €9,000 to date for CBS The Green.

“Over the last three years we have been lucky to have had the support of our students and the wider community and we are hoping that this year will be no different. The two distances attracted over 400 runners last year, both routes being fast and flat and suitable for runners and walkers alike,” said Helen.

“Lee Strand Milk and Foley’s Spar, Castlemaine road are Kindly coming on board yet again to sponsor this event. We will have plenty of trophies on the day, medals for all finishers, bouncy castles, post-race refreshments, music and an energetic warm up before the sounding of the gun,” added Helen.

Registration is available from the school office daily between 9am and 4.30pm. Registration will also be available on Saturday, September 29 at the school between 2pm and 6pm and on the morning of the run from 9am onwards. The cost of the event is €10 for adults and €5 for students and kids.
