Michal Rejmer Race Postponed

Posted on Apr 26, 2019 in Uncategorized

The Michal Rejmer Run committee have made the decision to postpone tonight’s 5 mile run on the ground of the current weather warning. Winds of 70km/h are predicted between 6PM and midnight, and we feel that this is just too dangerous to go ahead with the event. We will postpone the race until a future date, to be announced shortly.

All current entries for race 3 will be valid on this new date, and the series t-shirts will still be awarded.

Michal Rejmer 2019 Series Launch Night

Posted on Feb 28, 2019 in Uncategorized

We wish to thank parents and athletes who attended the launch of the 2019 Michal Rejmer run series in Crescent College Comprehensive on Monday night. In attendance on the night were two special guests – Declan Hannon captain of the Limerick Hurling team and Tom Comyns Dooneen AC Olympian. Our two guests spoke to the juvenile and senior athletes about various aspects of their sporting life – what motivates them to stay in sport and the importance of their coaches and mentors when growing up. We were delighted to have a number of public representatives at the launch. All of them have a connection with the club such as having children or niece/nephews as members or being members themselves. The race series will take place over 3 Friday evenings in April – April 12, 19 and 25 at the Country Club. Registration now open at
