Cahir Downhill Half Marathon

It's all systems go now as Mooreabbey Milers AC prepare for the second annual Cahir Downhill Half Marathon. The club was joined by sponsors, supporters and our charity partners in Cahir House Hotel last Wednesday 13th for the launch of the race. Guest speakers at the launch were Damien Holian, chairperson of Mooreabbey Milers AC, Claire Whelan, assistant manager of Cahir Credit Union, Wendy Costello of iCAN and Cllr. Andy Moloney. We were delighted to also be joined by John Cummins of Cummins' Financial Services and John Quirke of Quirke's Jewellers. It was very uplifting to hear all the positive comments about last year's event and it was clear that everyone involved is really enthusiastic about this year's race which will take place on July 10th.

We hope to recapture the festival atmosphere that was enjoyed by almost 400 runners, family, friends and supporters in 2015. Registration can be done online through and costs €40. This price includes registration fee, shuttle bus to the start, high quality technical t-shirt, fresh fruit from The Apple Farm and a two course meal. Cahir Physiotherapy will also be on hand at the finish line. Family, friends and supporters can enjoy free music and family entertainment at the finish line area. Cahir Media will be there to capture the action and memorable moments.
