The CIT track at Bishopstown will be the venue for a world class curtain-raiser for the London 2012 Olympics on Tuesday July 17th, with the staging of the 61st annual Cork City Sports meet.
Cork City Sports is Ireland’s premier international track and field meet, and some of the country’s premier athletes are expected to line out, particularly given the event’s proximity to the London Games, which get under way just two weeks later.
The event is reverting from Saturday afternoons to its original mid-week setting this year, and among the events being held is a junior men’s mile race for anyone born 1993-1996, with priority given those running sub 4.15 for 1,500m.
With places filling up fast, any athlete wishing to enter is advised to e-mail Steven Macklin at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, with the following details: name, club, and 1,500m PB and SB.
Action at CIT gets under way on July 17th from 6pm, with admission €10 for adults (€15 for stand); €5 for students and seniors; and free entry to under-12s accompanied by an adult.
