Calling all Clubs, Schools and Organisations. Turn up for the Ennis Turkey Trot and make money for your particular  club, with a total Prize Pot of €1000

This year’s annual ENNIS TURKEY TROT will take place on DEC 26th 2009, and Mayor of Ennis, Frankie Neylon is encouraging all Ennis residents to take to the fresh air on St Stephen’s Day to shed some of the Xmas Day excesses, for a very worthy cause, namely the RNLI

This year’s event, organised by Ennis Town Council in association with Marian Athletic Club, will be sponsored for the 1st time by McDonald’s Clare, Ennis and Shannon. Registration is free and All donations on the day will go directly to the local branch of the RNLI.

Here’s how it works.

 

  1. Get as many people as you can to be at Waterpark Hse for 11.45am
  2. Register before 12 noon, nominating your chosen group/organisation
  3. Complete the course.
  4. There will be a prize total of €1000 on the day.

 

Prizes will be awarded for the Top 3 finishers in both mens and ladies races. Also for the 1st time this year, category prizes will be awarded for boys and girls u-10 and boys and girls u-14.

 

A great FAMILY way to shed a few pounds of Christmas Day indulgence for a really worthy cause – the RNLI Lifeboats

 

Last Christmas saw the introduction of a new route for the run/walk, and the organisers have decided to follow the same route for this St Stephen’s Day.
As always the event will start and finish at Waterpark House, Drumbiggle, Ennis and runners and walkers are asked to assemble at 11.45am for a 12 NOON start.
On previous years, the ENNIS TURKEY TROT has  proven to be a huge draw for runners and walkers alike, with families particularly welcome.
Organisers are hoping that this year’s event will be even bigger.
