Reviews -
My own review...
Weather...Well the weather conditions were very good. Nice and mild and the headwind was not too strong. In fairness, it could have been an awful lot worse. So, 10 out of 10 for the weather.
Organization...Full credit to the Cork BHAA for putting on a great race. I heard that they got about 600 entries which is huge when you consider that last year, they got 497 and the year before, it was 418. I could see from the level of traffic coming to this blog over the last 2 weeks that there was a lot of interest in this race with people looking for info on entries and for details of the course.
The BHAA did a great job in dealing with the huge numbers...bag service was very swift, plenty of stewards, plenty of water stops and very good refreshments at the scout hall. Plus the T-shirt and all for €15!
Course...As expected, pretty flat with a few small drags. The term 'safety in numbers' really applies here as there so many of us, the traffic had to slow down. I'm not so sure I'd fancy running at the back of the race though with all that traffic. The only slight critism I would have though would be the mile markers or lack of them. They were painted on the road but they were pretty easy to miss. It wasn't too bad later on when the crowd had thinned out but they were easy to miss early on. The 4 mile mark was the first one that I saw.
My own race...I had very little training done for this. The longest run I had done since the Cork Marathon was 8.3 miles although I had done a lot of hillwalking in September so I thought this would help me which it turns out, it did. My original plan was to treat it as a 5 mile road race with a 10 mile warm-up! In the end, that plan went out the window. I found myself running comfortably through the 4 mile mark at 28:47 (7' 12" per mile). I kept with a group until the 8 mile mark (about 56:56.....7' 07" per mile). At that stage, I felt very good so I knew that I could do the full 15 miles ok. I picked up the pace then to try and break the 7 min per mile barrier and the rest of the race went fine. Crossed the line in 1 hr 42m and 47 seconds. I did the first half of the race in about 53' 22" (7'07"/mile) and the 2nd half in 49' 25" (6' 32"/mile). Looking back on it, I probably should have gone off a bit faster but to be honest, I was just glad to be part of the race.
By the way, I'm pretty sure that the last time I did this race was way back in 1996! I have no doubt that if it wasn't for the Cork Marathon last June, I probably would not have done the Cork to Cobh race this year. The Cork Marathon and Relay has really put new life into the local running scene.

And finally...After the race, I went up to the scout hall, got changed, had a cuppa and some goodies, talked to a few lads and then went back down into the town. To get home, I walked back towards the car ferry and people were still coming in! I have to say, full credit to them. They had been running for an awful lot longer than I had and just goes to show the committment and effort they had put in. Well done!

(...thanks to Derek O'Keeffe for all of the photos)

Your Comments...

"Hi john, just read your piece, well done to you, that was a very good time,also just to say well done for the info on the blog for this race it was great to have the updates on the weather which i agree was excellent on the day really enjoyed the run 1.57.44 my time not bad for me considering the recent half marathon took me 1.54.04 again well done to the bhaa very well organised but the need for the mile marker's need to be addressed the first one i saw was the 7 mile one. Next stop for me is Galway next saturday for the Galway Bay 10 after that i need time out. this was my 18th race since june keep up the good work on the blog, the best site for race info. Regards John Dunphy "
"Fantastic day. You have to hand it to the BHAA. I have raced many races this year and the BHAA are the best organised of the lot. Better organised than the Cork half marathon despite the bigger crowds. No problem in seeing the finish line here!!Did it in 1.35 and reasonably happy with that."...Anyonymous
"Well done to all could not have been organised better.The start went off very smoothly and even though there was traffic on the road i hardly noticed it because of the stewarding.The goody bag,sandwiches and craic afterwards were great and the weather was ideal.As for my run 1hr 59mins,which was very pleasing as it was only my second race after a 6month injury lay off. Pity there is no run (other than marathon) in October.Does anyone know of a run in october locally??Anyway well done again to all the volunteers on the day who made it such a success."...Terry H. (Terry..there is a 3km night race series starting soon. Hope to post details about it here next week...John D.)
"I hava a blister the size of a tomato on the ball of my foot and another the size and shape of a baked bean on the tip of my big toe....I cant walk on it. But it was good fun. Well organised and I'll do it again!!! "...Anyonymous.
" I'd just like to echo the above comments and the original blog in congratulating the Cork BHAA on a superbly-organised event, the whole thing seemed to go very smoothly. I did it in 1hr 53 mins 30ish secs. I was happy enough, but I fell into my usual trap of starting too quickly, the last two and a half miles were agony! Lovely weather conditions, and a nice, scenic route (relatively flat with a great downhill finish!). All in all, a good day, well done to all involved and hopefully I'll be back for it in 2008"...

Weather Forecast for the Cork BHAA 'Cork to Cobh' 15 Mile Road Race - Sun 30th Sept 2007 (Updated Sat 29th 5:30pm)

Only 18 hours to go now and the forecast becomes a lot more accurate. First of all, the chart above looks a bit worse than what was predicted a few days ago. What it shows is that they are predicting some light scattered showers. There seems to be some heavier rain off the South coast which is a bit close but should not reach the South coast until the late afternoon. At my best guess, I'd say that it might be overcast but bright in the morning. We might get a very light shower but we would be really unlucky if we do. I think it will be dry.
It looks now as if the low pressure system will be to the South of Ireland and won't hit the South coast until later in the day.

The chart above shows the predicted wind for Sunday. It looks like it will be a very light Easterly wind. This will probably mean that we will be running into it for the first 8 miles and for the last mile. It looks very light though so it probably won't be an issue.
One thing is for sure, this isn't going to be hot day like the Cork Half-Marathon. A few days ago, it looked as if it might be chilly on Sunday morning. Now, the forecast is that Saturday night will be cloudy so Sunday morning should start off mild. For the start of the race, the temperature should be in the low teens...10 to 12 deg C ?
Looking at the forecast overall, the conditions will probably be ideal for getting good times...mild but not too warm, very light winds and dry.

Preview of the Cork BHAA 'Cork to Cobh' 15 mile Road Race - Sunday 30th Sept (9:30am) (Updated Wed 26th 9am)

As far as I know, outside of the Marathon, this is one of the longest road races in the country. At 15 miles (24 kms), this is a tough race and a good challenge for many runners. It is often used by people in Cork and Munster as preparation for the Dublin City Marathon at the end of October.

Course - The start is close to St.Patrick's church near the railway station in Cork city. The course then follows the river, going down the lower road and towards the Dunkettle roundabout. After that, you go down the offramp by the flyover and make your way onto the old road which goes past Glounthaune. Down past the old Youghal Carpet plant and then take the bridge over the main road and head towards Fota, Belvelly bridge and on into Cobh. The finish is close to the main square in the centre of Cobh.
Overall, there are a few small hills but nothing major. A big factor on this course can be the wind. You are basically running East for 8 miles and then South for another 6 miles before turning East again for the last mile.
I remember running this many years ago when it was wet and there was a very strong Southerly wind. Miles 1 to 8 were fine but as soon as we turned South, the very wet t-shirt that I was wearing was pressed against my chest and I could really begin to feel the body temperature dropping ( the way, you should never wear a cotton t-shirt in a race! Wear a singlet and/or a thermal vest).
So, watch the weather forecast closer to next weekend and keep an eye on the wind direction.

Entries - You can still enter this race on the day near the start line. Cost is €20 and there is a free t-shirt included in this price. Note the start time is 9:30am so get there early! They will start taking entries from 8:00am onwards. I reckon that there will be around 500 to 600 runners taking part so it's going to be very busy.

Gear - The BHAA will provide tags in the hall near the start for your bag and then transport your gear down to Cobh. You can re-collect it in Cobh in the scout hall which is up behind the car park behind St.Coleman's Catheral. This is also where the refreshments and prizegiving will be.

Transport Options - You probably have a few options in terms of transport...
1) Two cars...take 2 cars to Cobh, leave one in Cobh and drive up to Cork
2) Train...There is an excellent train service between Cork and Cobh. You can park your car in Cork and get the train back after the race. The relevant trains from Cobh to Cork on a Sunday are at 12:25 , 13:35, 14:50, 16:25 and 17:30 depending on long you want to stay around after the race. The train stations are very close to the start and finish of the race so this might be a good option. I think the cost of the ticket is €3.55.
By the way, the first train from Cobh to Cork is at 9:15 so leaving your car in Cobh and getting the train up to Cork is not an option.

Distance - If this is your first time trying 15 miles, then be careful to pace it properly. It's very easy to go off too fast and get to the 10 mile mark near Belvelly bridge / Fota and find that you have run out of steam. Keep something in reserve until you hit the bridge. If you feel fine, then push on. If you are tired, then at least you have kept something to get you through the last 5 miles.

Water Stations - There will be 4 water stations out along the course. The approx locations are at 4.0 miles, 8.0 miles, 10.3 miles and 12.8 miles. (Thanks to Kevin Cummins for the update on these)

At last....Cork win something!! The Cork 'Rebelettes' beat Mayo in the Women's All-Ireland Football final for a famous '3 in a row' titles.

Cork Womens Mini Marathon...(Updated Sun 7th Oct)

Looks like the weather was pretty good for this one. It was certainly better than what had been forecast.

Race Report in the Irish Examiner...
"Almost 10,000 women take part in charity mini-marathon... By Eoin English

THEY had lithe aching limbs, sweaty brows and were panting to catch their breath after one of the country’s biggest road races yesterday. And the almost 10,000 women who took part in the Evening Echo Cork Women’s Mini Marathon found the going tough too. For some it was a serious race but for the handful or so who brought their pet dogs along, Munster’s biggest charity fundraiser was a just a bit of fun.

In a refreshing change from the regular drag and fancy dress runners, one woman was seen striding down Centre Park Road with three greyhounds in tow. “Barking mad, boy. They’re all barking,” quipped one wit on the safe side of the barrier as the Vhi Healthcare supported race streamed down the Marina towards Blackrock Village. Marathon runner Bernice Glavin, who earlier this year wrote an inspiring book on her successful battle with breast cancer, crossed the finishing line close to Kennedy Park under the three-quarters of an hour mark. And Labour TD Kathleen Lynch, who ran a successful election campaign earlier this year, opted to walk this one. It is estimated that up to €2 million was raised for local charities and hospitals by runners who completed the four-mile run through the city’s docklands region. And while the serious runners were crossing the finishing line in just over 20 minutes, most competitors were just happy it didn’t rain.
The race was won by Niamh O’Sullivan of An Riocht Athletics Club in Castleisland, Co Kerry, in a time of 21 minutes 52 seconds. Kaly Harty, from Co Down, crossed the line in second place with Breda Dennehy, who flew in from the US to take part, coming in third. Noreen Murphy, the chairwoman of the Cork branch of the Athletics Association of Ireland, said things had come a long way since the 1980s. “I remember running down the street for the race in 1985 just grabbing people to try and make up the 300 runner mark. And to see the crowds here today is just wonderful,” she said."...Source (Irish Examiner Website 24th Sept 2007)

"What a brilliant race. I did it in 38 minutes so i'm well trilled with that.The atmosphere was amazing. It felt so good to be part of all those people who raised money for all the charities."...Sandy

"Brilliant race, great to see so many charities having their names on display, I did it on 49 minutes, I was well pleased with that looking forward to next year"...Anne

Weather Forecast for the Ladies Mini Marathon on Sunday 23rd Sept...(Updated Sun 23rd 8am)

The current forecast is that the rain will clear in the morning with scattered showers in the afternoon. So, typical Irish might be bone dry or you might get soaked. Looks like there will be a moderate wind from the South West but this probably won't be strong enough to be an issue.

There is a band of light rain forecast but it probably won't hit Cork until about 4pm. The heavier rain is expected later at about 10pm.

Forecast from Met Eireann..."Bright or sunny periods and scattered showers this morning. Showers becoming more widespread this afternoon, with more persistent heavy rain developing this evening. Breezy, but mild with temperatures between 15 and 18 degrees."

Preview of the 'Evening Echo Ladies Mini Marathon' 4 mile road race...Sun 23rd Sept 2007 (1pm)

Course...The start of this race is on the Centre Park Road.
Mile 0-1. The first mile or so is very flat with only a slight uphill around the 0.8 mile mark as the road joins the Marina.
Mile 1-2. Dead flat along the Marina. Probably the most scenic part of the run.
Mile 2-3. This section includes the only real hill. There is a nasty pull from the 2 mile mark up to St.Michael's church, a distance of about 300 metres. After that, it's reasonably flat with a slight fall downhill into Beaumount about the 2.7 mile mark. Then past the AIB bank and Post office and take a sharp right down Maryville Road. Around the 3 mile mark, there is a very steep downhill section.
Mile 3-4. After the initial downhill section, the remainder of the mile is flat with the finish coming on Monaghan Road, near Kennedy Park.

Charity Event in aid of the Cork Children’s Leukaemia Association - Doneraile Forest Park - Sunday 16th Sept (10am to 3pm)

One of the sports that I do from time to time is orienteering and the club that I am joined are holding a special charity event in Doneraile Forest Park next Sunday morning. I know that it is not running related but seeing as how it is for a good cause and it is a nice area for running, I decided to post the details here.

It is called the Cliona Callanan memorial event. Cliona was a member of Bishopstown Orienteering Club and sadly passed away about 2 years ago. The aim is to raise funds for the Cork Childrens Leukaemia Association.

You can see a poster for this event at this LINK

Doneraile Forest Park is a really nice area and a great place for running. There are plenty of paths on this old estate. If you have never tried orienteering before, you might try one of the easier courses (White or Yellow or Red if you are feeling brave!) and then go for a run around the grounds after the event. Don't worry, you won't need a compass!! Just follow the paths on the map and you can't go wrong ;o)

Directions for Doneraile....From Cork City, take the N20 North for Mallow and Limerick. 5 kms North of Mallow you will come to the small village of New Twopothouse. Take the right here (R581) for Doneraile. The Forest Park is located in Doneraile. Look for Red & White direction markers on the day.
See this LINK

There is a minimum entry fee but if you can give something extra on the day, that would be great.

Cork Half Marathon - Updated (Fri 7th Sep 8pm)...

If anyone needs directions to find the GAA clubhouse in Blarney, see the map above.
Take the slip road off the N20 Cork to Mallow/Limerick road for Blarney. As you approach Blarney, there will be a walkway on your left. After a few hundred metres, take the first left and then the next right. You will now be very close to the Blarney GAA clubhouse.
Weather - The current forecast (Updated Fri 8pm) is that it will be very mild with no rain. There may be broken sunshine and the temperature may reach 21 deg C. The winds are expected to be very light.
