Thank you from Ballymore Cobh Athletic Club

Filed under: Local News |

Ballymore Cobh Athletic Club would like to take this opportunity to offer our sincere thanks to the many, many individuals, groups, businesses and sponsors who assisted us in innumerous ways with the Sonia O’Sullivan Cobh 10 last month.

The success of the race event was, in large part, due to the goodwill and generosity of so many who gave of their own time or resources.

A record field of 1,000 online registrations, sold out weeks in advance, was both exciting and very welcome for us as an athletics club to deal with.
It kept us on our toes logistically speaking, and with the assistance of scores of helpers, the event ran seamlessly.

Thank you, also, to all of those who came out to cheer on the runners all along the course, your encouragement for the participants cannot be overstated. Indeed, the feedback we’ve received post-race indicated to us how much this positive factor contributed to a great day for an enormous amount of people.

Finally, we wish to express our thanks to the inhabitants of Great Island who, as a whole, were very patient if at any time they may have been temporarily inconvenienced by the staging of our race.
Your patience and understanding is immensely appreciated by Ballymore Cobh Athletic Club.

Plans are already being drawn up for next year’s race as we speak!

Thank you, one and all.
