CBS Fun run sponsors 2

Kieran Ahern of Foley’s Spar Express on the Castlemaine Road delivers the trophies for the CBS Fun Run to the school. Also included are students and teachers Helen Kelliher and Karen Tobin.

WITH only days to go until the inaugural CBS The Green 5k and 3k fun run, organisers are still encouraging runners to register for the event.

Taking place on this Sunday, September 27 at 1pm sharp, the fundraising event marks the beginning of a new school year and the continuation of the school’s fundraising initiatives for their new astro turf facility.

The run received a welcome boost  as local man Norman Foley of Foley’s Spar Express on the Castlemaine Road is sponsoring the medals and trophies to the school.

Norman said that he was “happy to help out, in any way he could and that the astro turf facility will be of huge benefit to the school community.”

Preparations are well afoot for what promises to be a great day out for all the family.  Local business people have provided refreshments, bouncy castles and face painting.

All participants will receive a medal and goodie bag upon crossing the finishing line.

The running bug has well and truly been established in the Green school as a result of the very successful classroom to 5k programme.

CBS teachers Helen Kelliher and Karen Tobin, organisers of this event, are both keen runners and members of Born To Run marathon Club.

The race will commence and finish in the school grounds, taking in the town park and outlining areas, making the routes fast, flat and safe. The less challenging 3k is aimed at novice runners and local primary school children, while the 5k will suit all ages and abilities.

The cost of this event is €5 for children/students and €10 for adults. This will be a timed race. There will be plenty of prizes on the day and a medal for all participants.

Registration forms are available from the school and all information can be found on our Facebook page (CBS, The Green Inaugural 5k and 3k Fun Run) or by contacting the school on (066) 7145824.
