The 14th edition of the Baldy Man 8k Beach Race takes place on Sunday 28th
December 2014 at 1pm. For all those seeking a break from the road and
wanting to get rid of the Christmas pudding this is the race for you! For
veterans of this race this is an opportunity to better your PB. For
newcomers it’s an opportunity to test yourself on a unique course and to set
The Baldy Man is the name of a Sand Dune that you will pass if you make it
into the second half of the race!! If you pass it you are on the way home!
Please note that the starting time is 1PM and if you don’t register on line
before midnight on 26th December you can register on the day from 11am at
the Majestic Hotel Tramore.
We have to organise the race around tide times and that is why the date and
time change from year to year so for those of you who ran last year please
note the date change and the start time change
We are going with online registration this year at www.totaltiming.ie . We
will also have manual registration on the day at the Majestic Hotel Tramore
from 11am. We have chip timing as usual and all the usual category prizes as
in previous years.
As always showers are available at the GAA Centre after the race.
Refreshments and Prize Giving will also take place there immediately after
the last finishers cross the line.
Each year the proceeds of the event go to a local or national charity and
this year it is the Tramore & Waterford Arch Club who organise Friendship
Clubs for People with Special Needs”. If anyone wants a sponsorship card
they can get one from Ann Crowley at the Arch Club.
