Pride of place must go to Alan O’Brien with a sensational 2’34”56, averaging sub 6 min/mile, but all 5 must be delighted with their times. Very well done to the gang.

Trail and Hill Notes – Gerard Down
The IMRA Hill/Trail season for 2016 in Cork/Munster is effectively over and will recommence in late January with the start of the MMRA short race league. For any runner considering trying trail/hill racing, there are quite a few parks and forests in Cork city and close to Cork that would be useful for training.
This week I will briefly mention Beaumont Drive park in the Southside.( The park doesn’t seem to have an official name and some people may know it by the name of the adjacent Beaumont Quarry) The main access points are Beaumont Drive and at the end of Woodvale Road next to Scoill Barra. There is also a pedestrian access to the park along a pathway parallel to Ballinlough Pitch & Putt club opposite Cork Constitution Rugby Club. This park is the venue for the only cross country race on the BHAA calendar, which takes place in January and is a 5 k race taking in 3 circuits of the park. So the park is also a useful ground for cross country training.The main body of the park is on gently sloping ground and should not present a challenge to any runner. By extending your run into the smaller section by Beaumont Drive you have the option of
incorporating one of two hills; one is a short incline and the other is a relatively short but more challenging hill- the BHAA X country race uses the more challenging hill. By using the whole park, you have a circuit of approximately one mile. Next week I will briefly look at Garryduff Coillte forest
Upcoming events:
1. There is a 5 K trail race being held in Oldcourt Woods ( Garryduff Woods) on October 9th- further details courtesy of Cork

Eagle News:
Autumn/ Winter 3000m races: For the past two years, the club has organised a 3km race series throughout the autumn/winter months. These take place during the usual Tuesday track training time approximately every 6 weeks, and the provisional date for the first one is in two weeks time- Oct. 11th. Further details nearer the time. All members are welcome to take part and in previous years we have held two races on each night to accommodate various paces.

Coffee Run: Having been scuppered by adverse weather last Saturday, we will now have the next coffee run on Sat. Oct. 22nd, which will make an ideal taper run for anyone doing Dublin the following week. All details will be sent as usual the previous week.

Loop de Loop half, full and ultra marathons
A small group of runners, including myself, did one one loop ( 13 miles) of the Loop de Loop course on saturday night. Whilst the start and finish point of the races are now in the village of Lisvernane, rather than located in the grounds of the Aherlow House Hotel, the course is essentially the same as in previous years. Conditions around the course are good with the ground firm and significantly drier than last year.

Registration is via the IMRA site http://www.imra.ie/ and final day for registration is September.  10th.

Eagle News:
Kerry Way Ultra Challenge: The very best of Luck to Neil Mackay and Charlie Byrd, who will tackle the gruelling Kerry Way Ultra Challenge on Sept. 2nd. The lads are doing this as a fundraising effort to purchase a new hoist for St. Luke’s Home, Mahon. If anyone would like to sponsor Neil and Charlie, the link is www.gofundme.com/hoistforstlukes

Coffee Run: With so many people away and racing over the Summer, we have not had a coffee run for a while. Our next one is coming up on Saturday Sept. 24th, so put it in the diaries now and do your best to attend!
