The team will be hosting a raffle on the day, with lots of wonderful prizes, in order to raise much needed funds as part of a major new fundraising drive for the building a Vehicle Storage Unit in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary.  SEMRA members, all of whom are volunteers, will be out in force in advance and following the 12k event and will be displaying their state of the art base vehicle and rescue equipment.  It’s a great opportunity to meet the team and see what’s involved in keeping people safe on the mountains of the South East of Ireland.  It’s also a great opportunity to show your appreciation of the great service provided by SEMRA and its voluntary members who are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  There will be lollies aplenty for all the children in attendance! SEMRA are delighted to be beneficiaries of this wonderful event having had a strong association with the Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford since the early years.
5000 cyclists from all over Ireland and abroad have registered to take part in one of the three events on Sunday 25th August; the 50k Kelly Cruise, 100k Kelly Heritage Route and the 160k Kelly Comeragh Challenge. Entry for the Sunday routes is now closed and there will be no facility to enter on the weekend of the event. Dungarvan is gearing up for another fantastic weekend of cycling fun! Go on – get on your bike, and get ready for the Sean Kelly!  For full details on routes, start/finish or volunteer opportunities check out, find us on Facebook, email or call 085-21104.
