Live music and the NoCo Hot Box food truck will be back at the Rockland GAA Clubhouse and Pavilion following the race. At 2 PM, Rockland County District Attorney, Tom Walsh, will present the Cormach Murrihy and Noel O'Connell Awards.

Our inaugural event was held in memory of long-time club member Noel O’Connell. This year, we run in honor of all deceased members of Rockland GAA.
