The Committee of Clonliffe Harriers are extremely grateful and obliged to Pat Bonass who has most generously sponsored a new trophy for the Women’s Club 10,000 Championship.
Pat of course already sponsors the Men’s 10,000 championship and over 30 years ago presented the Bonass Trophy to the club for presentation to the Men’s 10,000 champion.
Both Men’s and Women’s Championships take place on Thursday September 13th in conjunction with the Grand Prix Series round that night. The club championship are open to all members of Clonliffe Harriers.
With the Dublin City Marathon taking place approximately six weeks later the 10,000 Championship represents an ideal opportunity for men and women’s athletes to get a good 10,000 race or indeed tempo under their belts. Whilst the thoughts of 25 laps on the track may be a little daunting to some it is important to bear in mind that 10,000 on the track is still the same distance as a 10k road race but there are no hills on the track in Morton Stadium!
All are encouraged, men and women to include this race in their schedule. See you on September 13th.
