An Post Rás/ Race the Rás
The third stage of the 2011 Ras will be running into Castleisland this year on the 24th of the month after a 175km run from Kilrush. The riders will face the Ahaneboy climb before dropping down to the town and facing into the Crag Cave climb before a final descent and rush for the line on Main Street on returning to the town. It is sure to be a great spectator event and will be well worth the effort to travel out to view if circumstances allow. Those that can make the event are asked to consider offering their services as marshals to Currow CC who are the hosting club for the event finish. Those operating as marshals should be able to cycle to their position on the route and will have some of the best spots on the road to see the race come through. If you think you might be on for helping out please contact Tom Kenny at [email protected].
A friend of mine (Darragh Crowley) is taking part in the Race the Rás charity challenge of the day and attempting to make the same 175km trip for the Irish Cancer Society and GOAL whilst staying ahead of the professionals. Any sponsorship small or large that can be donated to this challenge would be greatly appreciated – his mycharity.ie page is located here) and funds from this go straight to the associated charities. If you could lend him your support for these worthy causes it would be much appreciated.
