Dundalk as it Happens
Tick Tock 2 event announced in memory of Andy Califf
A new two mile walk/run/jog in memory of well known local athlete Andy Califf will take place later this month.
Details of the ‘Tick Tock 2’ was announced last night.
The event will take place at 7pm on Tuesday August 22nd, starting and finishing at the Louth County Council offices on the St Alphonsus Road where Andy used to work.
There will be a prize for the person who can predict their finish time, with no timing devices allowed on the day. The winner will be the person with the closest time plus or minus.
The event is being promoted by Louth County Council and North Louth Runners, with all proceeds going towards Duáin Croí. Entry is just €5 and all you have to do to enter is come along on the night.
Duáin Croí is a local group of runners and walkers, who last Friday completed their 1,000th kilometre as a group since running their first event in February when they took part in the Carlingford 5k.
The group was set up by a group of family and friends to raise much needed funds and awareness for the Children’s Heart Centre in Crumlin and the Renal Support Centre in Beaumont.
Next up for Duáin Croí is the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in Dublin this weekend.
Andy, affectionately known as Tick Tock, was known as an inspiration in local running circles and was a prominent member of the North East Runners club. A key member of the Dundalk parkrun group, he passed away last March.
