St Vincents launch annual 5k race

The St Vincents Secondary School annual 5K is fast becoming one of the most popular events on the local calendar and preparations for this year’s event are well under way with the official launch taking place on Wednesday Septmber 4.
The walk/run will take place on Sunday September 29 starting at Noon from the school gym and all proceeds will go towards a multipurpose outdoor sports facility.
Prizes include €200 for the first male and female, three month Felda membership for second male and female, while third place will win a spa voucher for the Four Seasons Hotel, Carlingford.
First female and male students under 18 will win €100, there is a Marshes voucher for second and Shop Local voucher for third.
The event is a chipped race, with walkers welcome and this year there’s even a prize for the best dressed dog.
Pre-Registration will take place from 9am to 4pm on Friday September 27 in St Vincent’s and from 11am on the day in the gym. Entrance is €20 and a limited number of T-shirts will be available to buy for €10.
The organisers are grateful to IT Tape who have sponsored the latest iPhone for a draw for any girl who returns a full sponsorship before Friday September 20. This card also gains entry to the race and a T-shirt.
Training will start during the girls PE classes as well as daily lunchtime walks/runs for each year. Also the school canteen will offer more healthy alternatives to spread the initiative.
