The ever popular Clonliffe Harriers Grand Prix Series of 16 Races will commences in Morton Stadium on Thursday March 28th with The Frank White, 5 Mile track race (Ireland’s only 5 Mile track race). The 2018 race was won in an Irish best time by Clonliffe international athlete Stephen Scullion.
This year is the 19th running of the series and is once again sponsored by Behan & Associates bringing together all of the Clonliffe club races: The Irwin cup, Horan cup, O’Connor cup, Walker cup, Ahern cup, Bonass Trophy, McDonald cup, Frank White Cup, Mick Murphy Memorial 5, The McCarrick plate, etc plus of course one of the World`s Oldest Races, the Clonliffe 2.
Last year`s series again went right to the wire, before Mick Gleeson tied up the series in the final race of the season.
The Series is open to runners from Clonliffe Harriers as well as to runners from other clubs and is most exciting, as each runner is handicapped throughout the series, giving everyone a chance to compete on an even level. Prizes are awarded for each race along with post race refreshments. Points are awarded following each race and at the series finale in December overall prizes are awarded to the leading runners. With races on every surface: track, road, grass, and the country there is something for all.
The full schedule of 2019 races will be on the Grand Prix Series page soon.
The entry fee is €30.00 for the entire series !!! Results for each race are posted on the Clonliffe Harriers website and a live points table will be kept updated throughout the series.
As always places are limited. Entry forms soon.
