Kerins O'Rahillys Run 2Kerins O’Rahillys 10K 1916 Commemorative Run

There are only two weeks to go until the Kerins O’Rahillys club hold their 1916 commemorative 10K run.

Excitement is building in Tralee and beyond as this is the first serious run of the 2016 season and gets every runners year off to a great start. To top this off this year there will be a special one off “Michael O’Rahilly commemorative medal for every finisher.

This is a truly unique medal and worth having. The event is open to runners and walkers. There is also a team event open to teams of 4 with the first 3 to score for their team.

The winners of the team event will be presented with the John Dowling Perpetual Trophy. Registration is now open on the Run the Kingdom website. You can also register on Friday evenings from 6-7pm 8pm and Sunday 31st 8-9am.

The run will commence on Sunday 31st at 10am at the club and will take in the surrounding areas. The route covers at least 7K of the Valentines Run so is great preparation for it. There will be refreshments and entertainment afterwards in the club. We would advise getting registered for this event as places are filling fast.

Coaching and Development

With ever increasing playing numbers at all ages in the Club we are always anxious to ensure that every player is given the best possible coaching in the skills of the game.

We are extremely grateful for the hard work and commitment of our members who volunteer to coach and assist in any way with each team. As in previous years we are looking for new people to get involved.

We have had a very productive 2015 and look forward to the same in 2016. This would not be possible without our volunteers.

Bearing this in mind and planning for the season ahead we would like to invite anyone who would be interested in getting involved in any team from Saturday Mornings to Minors to get in touch. “Many hands make light work”.

Coaching courses will be provided as were in other years and can also be updated. If you feel you have time to give please contact Juvenile Chairman Dinny O’Connor on 0879574410 or Senior Chairman Frank O’Connor on 0877971862. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
