Well that it, the last and final post on what was a busy week of blogging ;o)
Some final thoughts and tips...
1) What to wear...
Basically, as little as possible!! It's amazing when you look around at the start line and you see some people wearing sweatshirts, hoodies, tracksuit bottoms and so on. I saw one guy running the Marathon last year with a rain jacket! So lose the layers.
2) What to drink...
It looks likely that it will be a warm day. Use those water stations in the 2nd half of the Marathon. You are likely to be losing a huge amount of liquids through sweat. Remember, if you wait until you are thirsty before you drink, it is probably too late. Drinks small amounts often.
3) Where to run...
When they measure the course, they use the shortest possible route. i.e. from corner to corner. It's so easy just to follow everyone one and stay on the one side of the road and go around corners on the wrong side (A above). Keep thinking corner to corner (B above), keep thinking the most direct route. All of the metres added up over 26.2 miles can make the difference between getting inside your target or not.
4) Relay runners...
If you are a team of 2, consider letting the slower person go first. Otherwise, once they start, everyone around them will be going faster than them and overtaking. It's an awful lot easier to run when you are passing people rather than to have everyone passing you.
If you are a beginner, start slow. It will take about 2 miles before you get warmed up properly. It's so easy just to start too fast, for oxygen debt to kick in around the 1 mile mark and then you spend the rest of the time trying to recover. Start slow, find your pace and give it everything in the last mile.
5) Some links...
There is plenty of info up on the Cork City Marathon website.
Their Frequently Asked Questions section on the Marathon
Their FAQ section on the Relay
Their PDF document on how the Relay works
So, whether you are doing the full Marathon of 26.2 miles or part of the Relay event, good luck and enjoy your day........John Desmond

"Hi John and thanks for all the updates during the week. It has been great reading. On the water comments, I totally agree with you in relation to drinking from cups compared to drinking from bottles. Looking at the water stations on the map, I think the bottles are not distributed correctly. 2 bottle stops in the first 6 miles and the next one at 22 miles. Drinking from cups is a mess and considering how I do feel myself after the half way mark, the last thing they want is to be messing with cups. Stopping to get in a lot of water is a worry as the muscles in the legs sometimes play up once stopped. Anyway that my 2 pence worth. Best of luck to everybody. Enjoy .........Paudie"
"Hi John. Brilliant info all week. Thanks for that. Water situation not ideal but I doubt it will be changed. Just wondering if you have any idea of numbers for the day. i.e. similar, less or more than last year. I'm trying to decide what time to go in to the start. Regards and good luck to all!! .........AJ "
"AJ........Last year there were 1356 Marathon finishers. I hear that there will be a slight increase on the numbers this year so say, 1400. Then there are 848 relay teams entered (Last year was about 600). Let's say some don't make it so let's say 800. So 1400 + 800 = 2,200. So, I'm guessing that there will be a crowd of 2,200 or so at the start line on Monday morning.
Since Patricks Street is narrower than it was last year, I'd say that the field will be a lot longer at the start. However, there will be plenty of space on the Grand Parade, South Mall, Parnell Place and Merchants Quay for people to pass and get up to their proper speed. I'd say if you were there by 8:40, you should be fine........John Desmond"
"Hi John, excellent website....thanks for keeping us informed. I echo the comments on the water stations...even if the 2 mile bottled water station was at the 14 mile mark, it would give runners peace of mind! All the best to everyone participating & volunteering their time on Monday..........Irene"
"Hi John, I was wondering if you had any info on the transport arrangments to & from the relay changeover points. Last year, I was on the first leg of the relay, this year I am doing the 4th. Last year I was able to get the shuttle bus from the park & ride at the Kinsale roundabout to the city hall. I am having trouble obtaining this kind of info for this year. Keep up the excellent work with the site........Brendan"
"Brendan....here is some info from the e-mail that they sent out to all entrants.....Getting to your Relay Changeover. A fleet of Bus Éireann buses will operate through the day to bring you to and from the outlying relay changeover points. The buses will shuttle to and from the front of the City Hall........Cork City Marathon will provide a free Park and Ride service from the Kinsale Road (N27) Black Ash Park and Ride into the city centre from 7.30am. Participants and spectators are urged to use this facility and leave your car outside the city centre for the day. City and suburban bus services will be restricted because of the race. ........John Desmond"

Temperatures are forecast to be in the high teens, possibly hitting the low 20's after midday.
Just to put this leg into perspective, there are 5 stages in the Cork City Marathon Relay event...
Leg 1 = 5.2 miles, Leg 2 = 5.5 miles, Leg 3 = 3.2 miles, Leg 4 = 5.9 miles, Leg 5 = 6.4 Miles
This is the 5th stage of 5 and is 6.4 miles in lenght. Of the 5, it is probably the 2nd hardest leg even though it is the longest. It just does not have as many hills as the 4th stage.
For Marathon runners, this stage starts around the 20 mile mark on the Model Farm Road.
For Relay runners, the mile markers for this stage will be for the Marathon. Since you are starting so close to the 20 mile mark, you could consider the 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26 mile marks as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 miles.
It starts on the Model Farm Road near the 4th and final Relay changeover point. For Marathon runners, it's often said that a Marathon is a 10 km race with a 20 mile warm-up! This is the start of that 10 kms. It's a good time to check your watch and see how long you have to do it.
The mile starts on a flat section and heads towards the junction with Rossa Avenue. There should be a water station near here. Carry on past the County Council Library on the left and then soon, you will begin the steep descent by where the old Tennis Village used to be. Around the left bend, along the flat and then a nasty short little hill. After about 50 metres, it eases off but a hill like this at 21 miles in a Marathon can really take it out of you. From here, there is a gentle incline upwards all the ways to the 21 mile mark. At this stage in the Marathon, a really tough mile.
From the 21 mile mark, the road continues to climb gradually past the turn off left and past Nangles Nurseries and then right onto a quiet road. When you reach this point, take comfort in the fact that there are no more uphill sections. From here on, it's either downhill or flat.
Last year, the route went out past the Guide Dogs for the Blind training centre and out by the Poulavone Roundabout in Ballincollig. This however is a major road junction and the new route will cause less traffic disruption. Last year, they had a water station near the Guide Dog centre. This year, perhaps near the turn-off??
So, back to the course. Along the quiet road, nice and flat with new houses on the left. At the end, you pass a small church and then a steep downhill section, not easy with tired legs after doing 21+ miles. Out onto the main road and a sharp right. Now you pass underneath the castle high overhead and onto the Carrigrohane Straight or 'Straight Road'. Just around here, you should see the 22 mile mark. A mile with a tough start for tired legs.
Somewhere around here, there should be a water station with cups of water and Gatorade available.
This mile is dead straight and dead flat. You'll see the County Hall way off in the distance but it will hardly seem any bigger by the time you finish the mile. It is a very open area, fine if the wind is behind you from the West but not so nice if it is Easterly. A flat easy mile.
A carbon copy of the previous mile. Flat and easy except this time round, the County Hall will be towering above you at the end.
Just over 2 miles to go now. The mile starts near a water station and then continues on towards Victoria Cross as you leave the County Hall behind. Then the slightest of inclines as you cross left over the bridge and onto the Western Road. From here, there is a flat straight run of about 800 metres until the road veers away to the left. Around the bend and you now leave the public road as you head for the 25 mile mark. Somewhere around here, there will be another water station. A flat and easy mile.
Now you are onto a public walkway Accross the new Mardyke bridge and then a sharp right onto the riverside walkway. Here things can get a bit congested. Runners running 3 or 4 abreast can completely block your path. The whole area is wooded so if it's a sunny day, it makes a welcome change from the heat coming up off the roads. After a few hundred metres, you're back out on the North Mall and the wide public road again. Along the North Mall until you get to the junction with Shandon Bridge. Be careful here. The should be a Garda and /or stewards here stopping traffic to let the runners cross. I heard that last year, some cars would not stop or the garda on duty was letting the cars through with runners having to stop! Just be warned.
Now, onto Popes Quay with the Marathon runners re-tracing their steps of their 2nd mile. On past St.Mary's church to the 26 mile mark. A flat easy mile although a bit narrow in places.
Starting on the 26 mile mark, you now have 352 metres to go to the finish. At the end of Popes Quay, right accross the 4 lane wide 'Christy Ring' bridge and left onto the quays. It's about here that you begin to hear the noise coming from the finish. Then it's right, around the last corner to be welcomed by a huge volume of spectators, colour and a crescendo of noise as you enter Patricks Street. Now it's a short distance to the finish. Keep an eye out for the stewards as you approach as they may seperate the Marathon and Relay runners into different finishing areas.
That's it, all done.
For Marathon runners, you've just completed 26.22 miles and a full marathon. Well done!! If you want to have a closer look at this final leg, I have put it up on the MapMyRun website. Just click on the +/- to zoom in and out.
That's it. All 5 stages. All 26.2 miles of the Cork City Marathon. If you've read through all 5 reviews, you'll probably feel tired already ;o)
Now, it's time to run it.

Just to put this leg into perspective, there are 5 stages in the Cork City Marathon Relay event...
Leg 1 = 5.2 miles, Leg 2 = 5.5 miles, Leg 3 = 3.2 miles, Leg 4 = 5.9 miles, Leg 5 = 6.4 Miles
This is the 4th stage of 5 and is 5.9 miles in lenght. Of the 5, it is probably the hardest leg even though it isn't the longest.
For Marathon runners, this stage starts just before the 14 mile mark at 13.9 on Victoria Road.
For Relay runners, the mile markers for this stage will be for the Marathon. Since you are starting so close to the 14 mile mark, you could consider the 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 mile mark as 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 miles.
Just after the Relay changeover point on Victoria Road, you pass the 14 mile mark and the start of the 15th mile. Then left onto the quays, past Carey's Tools and left again onto Albert Street. Now the road really opens out as you go past the next 2 bends, past Brownlows and onto the South Link Road. From here, there is a slight climb up to the next junction. Then it flattens out and it's a straight run out to the 15 mile mark. An easy mile with a slight pull in the middle.
Just as you pass the 15 mile mark, you'll see the overhead bridge that you must get up to. So, it's under the bridge and then take a left for a very steep short climb. Easily the steepest part of the course but it's only 50 metres or so long. Then left, over the bridge, through the next junction and a short steep downhill section to Turners Cross. Left at the junction here and onto the Curragh Road. Now, the road is pretty flat as you head for the Kinsale Road and pass the turn off for Ballyphehane.
Just after this is another water station. As well as offering plain water in cups, they will have Gatorade in cups. On to the junction by Woodies, right onto the Tramore Road and past the back of the Musgrave Park rugby ground to the 16 mile mark. A reasonably easy mile with just one nasty short climb.
It starts with a slight downhill and then a long flat secton. Right at the next turn off and a slight pull uphill. Right at the next crossroads and through a housing estate. Left at the traffic lights and onto the main road which goes through the heart of Ballyphehane. A slight pull up to the next road junction with the Red bricked church on the right and then around a slight bend and the 17 mile mark comes into view. An easy enough mile with no real hills.
After the 17 mile mark, past the next set of traffic lights and the road goes slightly downhill towards the Lough. Now, this is where things change from last year. If you did this stage in 2007, you would have carried on straight past the Lough and up Hartlands Avenue. There was a water station here last year and there will be one again this year but where exactly, I don't know. There will be cups of water and Gatorade available here.
So, back to the junction....you'll need to take a right and the new route will take you in a big loop around the Lough. At the end, you come back onto Hartlands Avenue and then turn right by the pub. Now, there is a slight uphill section from here until the next set of traffic lights and the 18 mile mark. A mile that is mostly flat with a modest pull towards the end. By the way, watch out for the swans!!

Just to put this leg into perspective, there are 5 stages in the Cork City Marathon Relay event...
Leg 1 = 5.2 miles, Leg 2 = 5.5 miles, Leg 3 = 3.2 miles, Leg 4 = 5.9 miles, Leg 5 = 6.4 Miles
This is the 3rd stage of 5 and is 3.2 miles in lenght. Of the 5, it is by far the easiest leg.
For Marathon runners, this stage starts just before the 11 mile mark at 10.7 miles on Ringmahon Road.
For Relay runners, the mile markers for this stage will be for the Marathon. Since you are starting at 10.7 miles, the 11, 12 & 13 mile markers will be 0.3, 1.3, 2.3 miles.
Just after the Relay changeover point on Ringmahon Road, you turn right and you'll see the 11 mile mark. You continue on a flat road for about 600 metres until you approach Blackrock Castle which has recently been converted into an observatory. Just before the castle, there is a short steep section just as you round the corner. Then past the castle and then a slight downhill section for about 100 metres. Now the real hill starts, steep enough at first but it soon becomes more gradual. Total lenght of the uphill section.....about 300 metres. Soon the road begins to drop away again as you run downhill to the road juction by the Pier Head pub, right accross the open square and on towards the start of the Marina and the 12 mile mark. Overall, a hilly mile with 2 climbs.
This mile runs the whole lenght of the Marina right alongside the River Lee and must be one of the nicest miles in the whole race. Dead flat, a view of the river with a canopy of trees overhead. If the day is sunny, the shade makes a welcome relief. Towards the end, as you pass the 'Pairc Ui Chaoimh' GAA stadium on the left, you can look accross the river and see where the 5 mile mark was. As you approach the 13 mile mark, there should be another water station here. A flat and easy mile.
Round the corner and soon you should see the Half Marathon point. For anyone doing the Marathon, this is an important point as it should tell you if you are on target for your Marathon time. Carry on through the tunnel of trees, around the next bend and then a long straight section along Centre Park Road. At the end of this road, it's right at the roundabout to be greeted by the mass of runners eagerly waiting at the 3rd Relay changeover point. For Marathon runners, the 14 mile mark is just ahead. Another flat and easy mile.
So, that's the 3rd leg. It was 3.2 miles in lenght and it was the easiest leg by far. If you would like to examine this leg in more detail, I have put it up on the MapMyRun website. Just use the MAP view and the +/- buttons to zoon in and out.
Tomorrow, it's time to start looking at one of the more serious sections, the 4th leg.
"As usual, a fantastic post. John your blog has become a reference for a lot of runners in Cork. Thanks for all the efforts..........Yannick"

Just to put this leg into perspective, there are 5 stages in the Cork City Marathon Relay event...
Leg 1 = 5.2 miles, Leg 2 = 5.5 miles, Leg 3 = 3.2 miles, Leg 4 = 5.9 miles, Leg 5 = 6.4 Miles
So. this is the 2nd stage of 5 and is 5.5 miles in lenght. Of the 5, it is probably the 3rd easiest leg or 3rd hardest whichever way you want to look at it!
For Marathon runners, this stage starts just after the 5 mile mark at 5.2 miles between the skew bridge and Silversprings hotel on the Lower Glanmire road.
For Relay runners, the mile markers for this stage will be for the Marathon. Since you are starting at 5.2 miles, the 6, 7 & 8 mile markers will be 0.8, 1.8, 2.8 miles and so on.
It starts just before the skew bridge with a slight pull over the bridge, down the other side and then join the new Relay runners. Past the Silversprings Hotel and you head East towards the tunnel on the right hand side of the road. About half way along the road between the Hotel and the Dunketle roundabout, you'll come to the 6 mile mark. Another pretty easy and flat mile.
Near the 6 mile mark, there should be a water station with bottles of water. If you are doing the Marathon, you need to be thinking about taking on water at this stage. If you are a Relay runner and you need water at this stage, you must be in a bad state!
Carry on to the roundabout, through it and now there is a gradual climb up the slip road before it flattens out and then falls towards the tunnel entrance. The 7 mile mark is here. A reasonable mile although you will have encountered your first real pull and effort.
Overall, the first 7 miles of the Marathon are pretty flat and easy. Things get 'interesting' from here on.
Round the corner and down into the Jack Lynch tunnel under the River Lee. Now is not a good time to start thinking about the few hundred metric tons of water above your head and start looking for leaks ;o) .
Down you go into the bowels of the Earth for about half a mile with runners shouting and screaming and listening to the echo as they go. It's a really strange experience! However, soon after about half a mile, you hit the low point and then you have to start the long pull back out again. As you emerge back into the daylight, the road continues upwards and slowly the incline becomes more gradual until you reach the 8 mile mark. A tough enough mile, half a mile of downhill running, half a mile of uphill runnning and a mile you won't forget.
The first half mile along the South Ring Road is flat and easy. Then you take the right up the steep slip road for Mahon Point. This is the steepest section so far in the race. Then it flattens out and falls slowly towards the entrance to Mahon Point and the 9 mile mark. So, a reasonable mile with a steep climb in the middle.
Starts with a long half a mile climb all the ways to the CSO office. Nothing serious but uphill all the same. Then right around the corner by the CSO office and on to the Skehard Road. Along this section, you come to the next water station which is supposed to be cups of water only. Then the road falls slowly downhill and take the next right into a housing estate and the 10 mile mark. A reasonable mile with a moderate pull initially.
Out of the estate, then left, a flat section and then left again on to Ringmahon Road. This section is dead flat and soon you'll see the mass of runners eagerly waiting at the 2nd Relay changeover point at about 10.7 miles (..or 5.5 miles for Relay runners doing only the 2nd leg). For Marathon runners and Relay runners just starting, it's right at the next junction and head towards Blackrock Castle. The 11 mile mark is about 500 metres after the Relay changeover point. A flat and easy mile.
So, that's the 2nd leg. It was 5.5 miles in lenght and there were plenty of sections where you had to put in a bit of extra effort.
If you would like to examine this leg in more detail, I have put it up on the MapMyRun website. Just use the MAP view and the +/- buttons to zoon in and out.
Tomorrow, I'll look at the 3rd leg.

"During the last week of your taper, things can get ugly. Two weeks ago, you ran 20 miles in a single run, but now you shouldn't even be totalling that distance in the whole week before the race. And as your mileage plummets, your worries can skyrocket. But take comfort that thousands of other marathon runners preparing to race this coming weekend are going through exactly the same thing. And take refuge in your final mission: to ensure that your body is sufficiently fuelled, hydrated, refreshed and recovered for the task.

(Mick Dooley of the Cork Business Houses Athletic Association is writing a 12 part series of articles for the Evening Echo. He has very kindly sent them on to me so that I can put them up here on this blog. They are written with the beginner in mind. Part 12 is based on 1 week to go, about the 25th of May)
• Get your kit ready and pin on your race number to the front of your running vest (if you are in the relay ensure you have a number on your back also). Be careful with your race number, your disposable chip will be attached and do not swap with anyone else.
• If you are part of a relay team, make sure you issue team relay numbers x 2 to all your team members.
• Pin your chip and pin number on to your vest securely.
• Make arrangements to meet family and friends after the race.
• Tell plenty of friends that you are doing the race and invite them along on race day.
Race Day 2nd June
• Get up early and have a good breakfast about 3 hours before the start and then back to bed. Do not be hungry on the start line.
• Get to the start line in plenty of time and relax.
• Know where you are going to meet your family and friends out along the course and give them your drink and food.
• At the start, be careful not to get caught up in the fast start. Go at your own pace and relax into the start. Give yourself an idea of what you want to achieve and treat the marathon with respect.
• Avail of all the water stations. Take a little at each one whether you need it or not. It is too late to start drinking when you fell thirsty.
• If you are running the marathon, it would be important that you do not stop. Keep the feet going, no matter how slowly. If you stop at all, it is very hard to get going again as your body tends to switch off and the lactic acid kicks in.
• Be careful not to join in with a group of runners that come at you from behind. They may seem to be running at your pace but they might be running at 10 to 15 seconds per mile faster than you.
• Be careful of relay runners, they may be all over the place.
• Do not panic if you loose time, you have 26 miles to make it up.
With on line entries now closed postal entries may be accepted for another few days but you may not be included in the souvenir race booklet.
Please note that final volunteer training night will be held in the Montenotte hotel on Tuesday 27th from 7-30 to 9pm. All are welcome to attend.

Looks like there was a strong North-Easterly breeze for this race. They seem to have got a big turn out for this charity event with at least 250 or so running with plenty more walking. The following race report was provided by John Dunphy of Rising Sun AC.
A very good attendance of 254 runners turned out for this event considering that the Cork City Marathon is more or less just 1 week away now. On what I can only describe as a very fast 10k course, Alan O'Shea of Bantry AC cruised to victory in a time of 30.49 in a very strong Easterly wind. First lady home in 14th place was Rhona Lynch of Eagle AC in a time of 37.30 which is a new course record for this event. It was previously held by Mary Sweeney of St.Finbarr's AC. So, well done to Rhona and Alan on their fine wins today. Also would just like to mention the many walkers that took part today, well done to all. And finally thanks to all the stewards, gardai and race organizers for their contribution today in what was a very well organized and a very worthy cause for the Emer Casey foundation....John Dunphy, Rising Sun AC.
The first 254 finishers are shown below...

"John, did you not notice that the mile markers had not been repainted since last year. Surely for 20 euro entry fee they could have got a tin of paint. Also the prizes down the field especially for ladies were very sparse, they would want to remember that the elite dont make up the numbers or else they will lose support despite being such a worthy cause.......Anonymous"
"In fairness to the organisers, this race was primarily a fund raising event. I'm sure that anyone who went to this race and paid the €20 did so in the knowledge that the money was going towards a good cause rather than having a chance of winning some prizes. I doubt very much if the number of prizes will have any impact on the numbers in the future............John Desmond"
"John, read the entry form 2500 Euro in prizes. What did 1ST 2ND 3RD get ? Better money than most of the races around here I assure you. 300 Euro, 200 Euro, 100 Euro.??? Some money for a fun run. I still say the prizes for the higher age group were dismal but the spots were great and could have easily made up prizes. This race was also sponsored by a Solr.Co. and yes it is a very worthy cause and deserves all the support it can get but must also treat runners with respect. What about the mile markers????.........Anonymous"
"Hi, thank you for your comments which are always welcome good or bad, but on this occasion, this 10k race and walk is all about the Emer Casey foundation and raising funds to help detect ovarian cancer at an early stage and to try and save lives. Mile markers, prizes and so on just for this 1 event should be forgotten about. What makes the difference here is that everybody who donated money to this foundation are all winners and have all played apart in helping others that need our help. I hope this message will show you that there is more to life than prize winning. The biggest winner's here are the people who needs it more than us runners.........John Dunphy, Rising Sun AC"
"No one is saying that it is not a worthy cause and stop trying to hide behind that. The Rising Sun Mile is also a worthy cause and that had the road well marked (repainted) every quarter mile and it did not have half the back up of the Youghal race had. Remember it is also organised by Youghal Athletic Club and run under an AAI permit so it is a PROPER Road Race and NOT fun run (as you seem to be trying to imply). Real runners deserve the respect of having a road properly marked at least no matter to what worthy cause the money is going to......Anonymous "
"As someone who has run this race on both occasions and who will continue to run it for as long as I can, it seems to me what is being suggested are ways of improving the race and attracting more entrants which is what everyone wants. Remember it is the race brochure that advertises the prizes in an effort to attract runners or else why bother. So in my opinion, a more even distribution of prizes would help achive that aim. As regards the road markings, every serious runner I know (and are we not all serious when it comes to our own times) likes to have the road clearly marked and it's not such a difficult thing to do and would again improve the race. It is a splendid event, very well organised and deserves all the support it can get but useful suggestions to help improve any race should be welcomed. I know we always welcome constructive criticism and anything that helps improve our race in Midleton.........Danny Mc Carthy, Midleton AC."

This charity 10km road race and walk takes place next Sunday in the town of Youghal in East Cork at 3pm. The is the 2nd year of this event and it's purpose is to raise funds for cancer research. You can find out more about the Emer Casey Foundation at this link...http://www.emercaseyfoundation.com/index.php
If you are coming from Cork and as you approach Youghal, stay on the bypass. At the top of the hill, take the 1st left. You then go left again, cross over the bridge over the bypass and head in towards Youghal. (If you are coming from Waterford, take the bypass and at the highest point, take the slip road left before the bridge. Proceed towards Youghal).
As you head towards Youghal, you'll see the Pobalscoil na Trionoide school where you register for the race. Seeing as how this is a charity event, the entry fee is €20.
By all accounts, it looks like it should be a fast course. The race starts on a height near the registration point. You then run towards the bypass but you turn off left before you get anywhere near it. Then, its a steady drop down until you join the main road into Youghal. The race then basically goes through the town to the far side and then turns around and returns through the town again. The only hill worth talking about is the slight drag after 5.5 miles when you need to pass the small lighthouse on the left. Then around the corner, stay left and finish near the beachfront.
If you want to have a closer look at the course, I have put the route up on the MapMyRun website.
This race is for a good cause and it's worth attending for that reason alone. However, if you are running the full Marathon in Cork, you really must make sure that you do not run too fast. It's just way too close to the Marathon to be doing a fast 10km. Take it easy and jog around. For anyone else, it should be all guns blazing as usual!! ;o) The current forecast is for a bright dry day.
This Half-Marathon was due to take place next Sunday on the Old Kenmare Road near Kenmare, Co.Kerry. The event was going to be partly country roads and partly off-road on trails. It looks like this event has now been cancelled. The Cork Triathlon Club issued the following statement...."Cork Triathlon club regrets to announce that the 'Windy gap' trail half marathon, Kenmare, Co Kerry planned for 25/5/2008 has been cancelled. All entries will be refunded"
"I really wonder who thought that putting on that race one week before the Cork City marathon was a good idea in the first place. I would have been very interested in running this one had it been on even one week earlier (or 3 weeks later), and I'm sure I was not the only one who did not sign up because of Cork....Thomas"
The first race in the Ballycotton 5 mile Summer series kicked off last night in Ballyandreen in East Cork on what was a lovely Summers evening. What a difference 24 hours makes because on the previous evening, the weather was awful, cold and wet. Yet again, Ballycotton Running Promotions had everything organised to perfection, even the weather! How do they do it???
As for the race, they managed to attract a record crowd of 279 runners which is some going for a race that has been going for 25 plus years. The previous record was set 25 years ago back in 1983 when there were 271 finishers. Back then, 84 runners broke the 30 minute mark. Last night, just 20 runners got under. Reasons for the change??? People have less time?...More people just running to stay fit rather than to compete in races?...More sports to choose from?

"First Race since the Mallow 10m due to injury, what a great feeling to be back....Aiden Hickey"
"What a beautiful evening it turned out to be. It was lovely to cross the finish and head straight down to the beach and soothe the legs in the sea. Then up for a cup of tea afterwards. A really enjoyable evening, except for the hill at 3.5!!!!......Simon"
"Ahhh...the 'Beast of Ballyandreen' at 3.5!!! I thought people might 'enjoy' that one ;o) .....John Desmond"
"Great finish! You feel like your hang gliding coming down the hill for the last quarter mile......Phil"
"Hi John, with regard to the the slow times, it's the bloody women, they are dragging all the fast runners around shopping with them to carry their bloody bags!! ;o) Thats my story and I'm sticking to it. Good course last night. Last mile was great, a very fast mile for me. What can I say about this race? Well, it had it's up and downs ha ha.........John Dunphy, Rising Sun AC."
