Derrynoose GAC are organising a World Record Attempt for a 12 hour 100 Metre Relay Race on Saturday June 12th 2010 in Derrynoose. They are looking for 2,500 athletes to participate and help to achieve the World Record. People of all ages over 10 yrs can take part and it should be a spectacle as well as raising money for the Derrynoose Club and MS. You can get further details by sending an email to, or TEXT the word RECORD followed by your name to 82010 from NI or 57856 from ROI. Texts charged at standard rate.

Can you get involved?


Our own Jolly Joggers were there and took part. Some put up personal bests but all finished with good times. All except Geraldine who suffered an injury which compelled her to limp home. We wish her a very speedy recovery and we hope she is back in action real soon.
