Tullamore Harriers hosts Hospice Mile on Christmas morning

The Hospice Mile will take place in Tullamore on Christmas morning

THE annual Tullamore Harriers Hospice Mile takes place on Christmas Day morning between 10am and 12 noon.

After being cancelled last year due to Covid restrictions, the popular event will go ahead this year. 

You can run, jog or walk a lap of the track or the full distance.

All runners and walkers are asked to take part in the fun family event.

And it's a great way to work up a good appetite for the festive dinner.
