Jog For Jockeys on horizon….
Jog For Jockeys is back. The fundraiser for the Irish Injured Jockeys’ Fund will take place on Sunday, 23 August at the Curragh.
This will be the fifth anniversary of Jog For Jockeys and it will be the biggest event so far. Run, jog or walk the 5k or 10k routes across the Curragh and up the home straight, crossing the same winning line as so many of the heroes of racing have done before you.
Audrey O’Dwyer, Organiser of Jog For Jockeys said: “Our riders risk injury every time they race. Racehorses gallop at speeds of 35 to 40mph and falls can happen at any time, on the flat or over obstacles.
What other sportsperson has a minimum of two ambulances and a doctor travelling behind them each time they compete? By supporting the Jog For Jockeys, you are supporting the bravest men and women in sport.”
You can pre-register online now at www.jogforjockeys.ie. Entry costs €20 or €25 on the day and you will receive a free Jog For Jockeys T-shirt. Children are free but can be registered to receive an official timing chip.
Teams of five can be entered for €100. The 10k race begins at 11am with the 5k going to post at 11.20am.
