BEFORE the countdown to the new year and the fireworks light up the night sky, there is one important piece of business to attend to.
The inaugural Maccas Dash For Cash winners must be crowned tonight at the McCormack Barber Party Under The Stars.
Some entries have already come in with athlete Kyle Connolly one to watch at Waratah Sports Ground.
Connolly brought home a bronze medal from the 2011 Little Athletics NSW Championships in the 17 years boys’ 110m hurdles.
In 2012 he finished second in the Men’s Invitational 100m Handicap at the Dubbo New Years Carnival.
It is expected Orange Hawks speedster Cody Robbins will line up and could push for the title.
Another entrant to keep an eye on is boxer Sam Ah-See.
The 23-year-old is known for his fast fists but apparently his legs can move quickly too.
“I was a good sprinter. I won a lot of school comps. I went to Western Region, but I didn’t wear spikes and a slipped at the start,” Ah-See explained.
“I do a bit of sprinting for my training. I have a bit of speed.”
Ah-See is looking forward to testing himself in the 100m for the Dash For Cash.
“It will be good to see how I go against the others,” he said.
“I will bring the spikes, so hopefully there will be no slips from me this time.”
Should Ah-See be first across the line in the final, the $1000 will come at the perfect time.
“I’m going to America in two weeks. If I win the cash, that will definitely help me out,” he said.
Ah-See will spend four weeks in America where he will train with former heavyweight boxer and now elite trainer Justin Fortune, and former International Boxing Organisation world super featherweight champion Will Tomlinson.
The southpaw will have two weeks with each mentor and hopes to have plenty of opportunities to spar while he is with Fortune.
“I want to do a whole lot of sparring and soak in that level of competition,” he said.
In the women’s Dash For Cash, there are rumours former top Little Athletics sprinter Kate Butcherine will line up, while netballer Sophie Beer could also be on the track to try and claim the $1000 first prize.
The event’s first heat will be run at 6.30pm and the finals are scheduled for 7.30pm.
Entries for the Dash For Cash will be taken at the McCormack Barber Party Under the Stars today. There will be a McDonalds tent set up in the middle of the Waratah Sports Ground where the races will be organised.
Registration is $15 per person and will be donated to the Orange hospital.
