Running Fever to hit Borrisoleigh
With the thriving nature of road running in Tipperary, the contagious fever is set to effect the village of Borrisoleigh on Tuesday 26th of June when the Track-Attack Club will play host to their fifth annual 5km road race in what will potentially be a great advertisement for the sport in general.
Sponsored by Declan Maher Financial Services, the event has grown year on year and with the attractive race package that has been put together for this year, the trend should well continue on its upward curve.
The defending men’s two time champion is Irish International athlete Sean Tobin from the Clonmel Club while Borrisokane’s Siobhan O’Doherty have been successful on all four occasions to date in the women’s race.
This year’s winners (men & women) will receive €200 each for their efforts with the second place athletes getting €100 and the third finishers getting €75. We are have a bonus for the course record and in what could well be a unique offer, we offer a €100 bonus to each of the top three if they can overcome the standing barrier. The course records are 14:58 for the men and 16:42 for the women with both times set by the aforementioned Sean Tobin and Siobhan O’Doherty.
Hand crafted slate trophies will be on offer to the first Under 18 boy and girl and the first man and woman in the Over 40, 50 and 60 age-groups. Prizes are also on offer for every 25th finisher.
The big change to this year’s event is the change to the team structure. Teams in this year’s event will consist of 3 men and 3 women with the winners being the first club to have their name etched on the Track-Attack Perpetual Cup while also picking up a prize of €300. Athletes who finish in the top 3 individual places are not permitted as members of a team but overage and junior grade members are permitted as team members.

Kenny brothers head for English Greyhound Derby Final
A greyhound called Bombers Bullet runs from Trap 1 in the prestigious English Derby Final which will be held at Towcester in the U.K. next Saturday night on June 2nd 2018.
The Borrisoleigh connection is that Bombers Bullet was bred by Brendan Kenny of Cnoc Neibin in
Borrisoleigh and he was reared, schooled and raced by his brother John (Gunboat Prefix fame) before he was bought by leading British greyhound trainer Mark Wallis to race in the U.K.
A small group of diehard greyhound supporters will be travelling from Borrisoleigh and although “The Bullet” is an outsider he has a great trap draw to work with and certainly has the pace and power to come home in front.
Borrisoleigh has a long and proud tradition of breeding and racing greyhound champions and Bombers Bullet is wished every success in the Derby Final.
The Kenny brothers are following in the footsteps of their Uncle Joe who bred Deerfield Sunset who twice contested English Derby Finals as well as one Irish Derby Final.
He finished 3rd behind Chart King in 1999 and 4th behind Rapid Ranger in 2000.
