Launch of Tullamore Harriers Quinlan Cup Half Marathon 2019/Phyllis Delaney Cup
The Annual Tullamore Harriers Half Marathon which is traditionally run on the last Saturday in August is falling this year on Saturday 31st of August. At 11am there will be up to 1000 athletes lined out for the 7th Tullamore Harriers Quinlan Cup Half Marathon. On Friday evening 16th August, the race was launched and Mr Adrian Curley, Club Chairman, welcomed the sponsors to the Stadium. Without the generosity of those sponsors, the half marathon would not be possible. The annual event which attracted just over 300 athletes 5 years ago has now a superb reputation which resulted in an early sell out this year! It also incorporates the Offaly and Leinster Half Marathon Championships. The sponsors supporting the Tullamore Harriers Half Marathon are: Condron Concrete Works, Imagine Ireland, Tullamore Hardware, Capital Securities, Tullamore Court Hotel, Heatwise, Offaly County Council, Applegreen, Maunsells Gala, Willie O’Connor, K&E Mann, Seimens Gamesa, Glenisk, Wind Turbine Engineering, Hire Depot, Dolans Pharmacy, Ready2Run, Print Plus, Tullamore Camera Club, Leavy’s Centra, Renault.

The club offers its condolences to the family of Barry Woodnutt, Tullamore, who passed away recently. Barry was a club stalwart for many years. He served as club juvenile coach for most of the 80’s. His influence on that generation of athletes was immense. Known for his quick wit and jovial disposition he was hugely popular with all who knew him. May he rest in peace.
