Win a chance to run in the Olympic Stadium with Powerade

Athletics Ireland has become involved in an exciting project with Powerade which will allow athletes a chance to win a prize to compete in the London 2012 Olympic Stadium in a 100m race on Thursday the 3rd of May. Clonliffe Harriers will act as host club in the Morton Stadium for the April 21st event.

The trip includes flights, an overnight stay in London, a tour of the London 2012 Olympic Stadium, a training session with Jess Ennis Coach, Tony Minichiello, coaching tips from Derval O’Rourke and you get to compete in the 100m at the London 2012 Olympic stadium.

To be in with a chance of winning this once-in-a-lifetime experience, entrants need to simply register and participate in one of four ‘Powerade Ireland On Your Marks’ regional 100m race events. Powerade is inviting participants to come and set their personal best over the 100 metres at one of these events. Electronic Timing will be used for all of the races. Registration is now open through: (see link below)

The participants don’t need to be the fastest person in the World to win, they just need to be there and show their determination. At the end of each regional event every participant’s race number will be placed in a draw to win one of FOUR PLACES on the Powerade London 2012 Olympic Stadium Experience.

The free Regional events, hosted in conjunction with Athletics Ireland, will take place in Connacht (Knocknarea Arena, I.T. Sligo) and Ulster (Antrim Forum) on the 14th April and Munster (Cork I.T.) and Leinster (Morton Stadium, Santry) on the 21st April.

Please note entrants must be 16 to enter.
