Provisional results for the 2016 Dublin City Marathon

alan-o-brien-dublin-2016

A total of 41 Eagle AC members took part in this years Dublin City Marathon, the highest ever number from the club. As well as there being some fine individual performances, it looks as if the club may have got into the medals in the National Marathon Championships.

In the M35 category, Alan O’Brien ran a superb time of 2h 33m 34s to take Silver. In the M50 team category, the team of Ronan Boland, Frank Hill and Martin Leahy look like they have taken Bronze.

As with all provisional results, they could well change over the next few days.

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.
Garryduff Woods With a 5 K race in Garryduff woods on the 9th, a quick look at this venue would be in order. The official entrance is adjacent to and runs parallel to the the Garryduff Sports Centre at the top of both Coach Hill and Clarkes Hill which run off the Rochestown Road – Clarkes Hill is about 5) metres beyond small roundabout leading to and from Link Road. The entrance lane is about 150 metres long and at end, take a right which leads into the woods and about two hundred metres on you reach a central area. From here you can do a roughly one mile circuit. Whether you go right or left you will meet reasonably challenging hills so it is demanding if you are new to trails. If you keep to the edge of woods, you will sooner or later, get back to where you started.In wet weather parts of the trail can be muddy and care is needed with roots and stumps sticking out of ground. 4
Coillte have a good article on the woods on their site : http://www.coillteoutdoors.ie/index.php?id=171&rec_site=143

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 Running Blog https://www.facebook.com/CorkWoodlandAdventureRace

2. Upcoming Mountain Marathon in Austria with Eagle AC participation is the Kaisemarathon in Soll, Austria on this coming saturday.

Eagle News:
Autumn/ Winter 3km 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 on 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.

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
