Annual St Vincent de Paul Charity 3km 2020

Well done to everyone who took part in our annual Christmas 3km event in aid of St. Vincent de Paul last night in Conna Sports Field. This years event was a very different affair due to covid restrictions, with atheletes setting off in small grouped waves to ensure social distancing requirements were observed.

The restricted interaction and social distancing didn’t dampen peoples spirits with some great running and an amazing €780 raised for SVP at this important time of year.

Well done to all who took part and many thanks for your generous donations! Also a big thank you to all the stewards, starters, time-keepers and covid compliance officers who made the night a safe and fun event for everyone.

Please note the following about the event:


The venue will be well sign posted.

There will be three fields in operation as follows:

  • Parking will be in one field only. Plan to arrive in good time for your race as they will go off on time. Allow time to check in. Please follow stewards’ instructions at all times.
  • Warm up field – all athletes must remain in warm up field until called into competition field (please note that only athletes in the girls and boys U-10 races will be allowed walk the course before their race).
  • Competition field – a single-entry point will be used and only athletes, coaches and one parent/guardian of underage participants who have pre-registered will be allowed into the competition field.

A physical distancing queuing system will be operated, and all entrants will be asked to use hand sanitiser.

Entrance Fee

An entrance fee of €5 per adult, €3 per juvenile (Under 19) or €10 maximum per family will be charged.

No change can be given on the day so exact money only to be placed in an “honesty bucket”at the check in desk.

Public address

A public address system will be in operation to call athletes to their races.


Toilets will be available in both warm up and competition fields

Appropriate cleaning products will be provided and all users will be asked to sanitise before & after use.

Before competition/race 

Athletes will be called to the competition field no sooner than 10 minutes before their race.

Medals for the first three individuals of each race will be on the podium for collection.

Team medals will be forwarded through the club competition secretaries.

After competition/race 

After an athlete’s race we ask that they leave the venue as soon as practicable.

There will be a separate exit point from the competition field back to the car park field.

Food & Drinks

Athletes/spectators must bring their own refreshments with them. No bins will be provided so all rubbish must be brought home by those that would like to bring a picnic.

Recording of athletes at finish 

As we can no longer give out tickets at the finish line, we ask each club to provide a stick-on number to all of their competing juvenile athletes marked with their relevant club number. Each juvenile club will be allocated a number and all club athletes must wear that number as follows:

Ballymore Cobh A.C. 1  

Carrignavar A.C.         2 

Midleton A.C.             3 

St. Catherines A.C.     4 

St. Nicks A.C.               5 

Watergrasshill A.C.    6 

Youghal A.C.                7 

It is very important that each club coach knows their first four athletes in each race as our recorders will only record a club number and not a name

A separate recording procedure will be in place for the senior/master athletes but all athletes Juveniles, Juniors, Seniors and Masters must pre enter in order to compete.
