Nenagh CC are proud once again to play host to the Tipperary Road Race Championships 2017. It is the second year that we have hosted the race and we hope this year’s event can be just as successful as last year’s event. For this to happen we need all Tipperary clubs to try their best to support it. If people keep turning up, we will keep hosting it.
