This Sunday the Emyvale GP will take place in Monaghan. The race has traditionally featured a women’s only race but this year it does not form part of the Women’s National League. The organisers of Sunday’s race have kindly offered to put on a separate women’s race if there is sufficient interest for it.

The race in Emyvale is on a nice course, rolling but not hilly on well surfaced roads.

The organisers need time to make arrangements for Sunday’s race, if you would like to take part please fill out our survey by clicking HERE as soon as possible and we’ll pass the numbers on to the race organisers:
