As part of the program of events this Saturday when Olympic 800m Champion David Rudisha visits Dangran with his coach Brother Colm, Craughwell AC have been allocated 2 800m races:-
– 3.20pm for our younger athletes of any age
– 3.30pm for our older athletes and seniors
This is a fantastic opportunity to meet an Olympic Champion and get your photo with him on the start line. We are encouraging all athletes to make it in for the races. Wear your club singlet for the photo!!
Rudisha himself is taking part in a celebrity 800m at 4pm. There is also a small track and field program for senior athletes during the day comprising 100m, 400, long jump, shot putt and an invitational mile race. The latter which commences at 4.20pm will possibly witness the first ever sub 4 minute mile run on Galway soil.
