Recommendation from Ed Fitz – Gingerbread Half marathon Sun 19th November
“Just a heads up on the Gingerbread run half marathon course in Portalington Co Laois.It was one of 13th different half courses I ran last year and absolutely the flattest,including Charlieville, that I have ever come across.Perfect PB territory. I think the journey took us about an hour thirty straight up the M8 and at €40 including t-shirt,medal and refreshments I thought it was good value. The race is currently at 70% according to their FB page and they do use pacers.
I just signed up again for this year”…. Ed Fitz

Club News: John Desmond

100 Parkruns : Well done to John Dunphy who recently completed his 100th 5k parkrun! John has been a great supporter of the parkrun in Macroom and Ballincollig over the last few years. And his 100 t-shirt arrived in the post during the week.

Club Talks Workshops : The club is currently looking at organising some talks and workshops over the next few months. Tracy Cotter and myself are working on these at the moment and we’re looking at three evenings… 27th Sept, Mid Nov Feb 2018. These will will cover a wide variety of subjects so there should be something for everyone.

Date : Wed 27th Sept 2017
Venue : Hotel in or near Cork City
The outline format will be as follows :
7pm : Mental Preparation for Road Running Marathons by Canice Kennedy, Sports Psychologist.
7:45pm : Q A Session
8:00pm : Tea Coffee Break.
8:20pm : Kevina Reel will give a practical presentation on the use of a foam roller and how to target key muscle areas for running.
9:30pm : Conclusion

Please note that there is a cover charge of €5 per head. Please note that we can only accommodate a certain number of people on the night. We may have to limit the numbers depending on the interest shown so it’s not just a case of wandering along and turning up. Fill out the survey to book your place if you are going.

Norman Kelly : There was a nice article recently online about club member Norman Kelly who takes part in a lot of adventure races… http://www.questadventureseries.com/norman-kelly-seasoned-racer/

Waterford Greenway Run : With the Dublin Marathon coming up at the end of October, I am organising a club run two weeks beforehand on the new Waterford Greenway on Sat 14th of October 2017.
