From the CIT AC Facebook page:
"In association with The Edge Sports Shop CIT AC brings you the 7th annual CIT floodlight Cross Country. 5k for the men and 3k for the ladies.

Registration will take place upstairs in the main CIT GAA stand from 6pm onwards. This race is perfect for both novice athletes and also the more experienced ones.

Proceeds from the race will go to CIT AC and The Make a Wish Foundation.

Refreshments and presentation of prizes will take place in the same room as registration after the races. Prizes for first 3 men and women over the line. Entry fee is just €5.

*Reminder this race is open to everyone. You do not have to be affiliated with a club/college for this event."

The course is around the perimeter of the GAA pitches on the CIT Campus, in Bishopstown, so the grass will be short(ish) and, unusually for an Irish cross-country event, should be virtually clear of mud. muck, cow-pats and many of the other usual Irish cross-country "nuances". Apart from the weather, this will be more akin to a foreign cross-country course...like Portugal, for example.  It's a great  opportunity for a first-timer wanting to "test the waters" of cross-country.
