Evening all

Hope the week so going ok so far, it’s almost Friday anyway!

Well done to all the Eagles in Charleville last weekend with some brilliant running on the day. I know many were also using the run as a build up to the Dublin Marathon, in 30 days, so hope it went to plan. Thanks to Ruairi for the results on this below.

This weekend brings the ever popular Cork to Cobh 15 miler. The race starts at 9 am on the lower Glanmire road outside St Patrick’s Church and if anyone has not done it before and would like to, you can sign up for this one on the morning the race at the Union Chandlery from 7.30am , for €20. There are always plenty of Eagles running this race so plenty of company to be found.

It is also only 10 days until Mark Smith heads state side to run the Chicago Marathon on October 7th; so in case Mark is already on route this time next week we wish him the very best of luck, have a safe trip and a great marathon.

Wishing you all the best for the week ahead; whether you are building up into those last Dublin training weeks, or thinking of trying your hand at cross country this year, or perhaps you are working hard on recovery or returning from injury, just keep on going, stay positive stay strong.

Eagle club gear Update (Ruairi Egan/Eddie Trindle):
New on the web store this week are Ron Hill running jackets. Ladies men’s in yellow and also men’s in black. Also new is a track top for €28. I will have samples at next week’s track session. Don’t forget our discount code “EAGLE10” for 10% off.

EAGLE AC Weekly Club Email

Evening everybody!

Thank you very much to Elaine for last weeks email, much appreciated and we have missed your emails!

Hope everyone is keeping well and that storm Ali is not messing up the running schedule too much.
Well done to all running over the last week some super results below, Eagles spread over Cork, Kilkenny and Berlin. We have been promised a race report from Berlin, so we will be looking forward to that hopefully in the not too distant future!

Autumn is setting in and the races are getting longer with Charleville next up this weekend; best of luck to all taking part in Charleville half marathon and also to anyone heading Dublin direction for the half marathon there. Cork to Cobh, which is always a very popular club race/ long run before Dublin, is also on the horizon for the following weekend.

Indeed whatever you are tackling this weekend week, good luck and stay out of the way of the storms.

Take care safe running!

BMW Berlin Marathon 2018:
12 Eagles travelled to Berlin last weekend for what turned out to be a world record setting marathon. I hear it was a great trip and some members got to meet the man of the moment, Eliud Kipchoge. No word yet on whether he was convinced to visit us for the Cheetah run or the Carrigaline 5 miler in 2019.
In the race itself, some great performances and PBs with 4 Eagles breaking the 3 hour mark. It wouldn’t be a marathon without throwing a few injuries into the mix too, and it was a difficult run for some Eagles but that i guess is the challenge of the marathon. Although Ronan Bolands injury meant his race did not go to plan he was back out to support and was a great support to all the Eagle runners on the course. Special mention also to the official water boys, Alan O’Brien Frank Hill who did a great job I’m told. Well done to all, details below:

Elaine Guinane

Hi Everyone,
Stepping in for Karen this week who, like many others, is getting the game face on for Berlin Marathon on Sunday.. The very best of luck to all our members travelling at the weekend; at the risk of leaving someone out (and apologies for this), the gang heading over include Karen Bevan, Derek Costello, Mairead Lonergan, Ian Roche, Mark Smith, Derek O Keeffe, Lisa Boland, Ronan Boland, Vivian Foley and Sean O Keeffe. Have a great run, everyone.

Special Mention to Richard Piotrowski this week: As reported on last week’s mail Richard, one of our outstanding masters athletes, gave a terrific performance in the Cross Country world Championship event in Malaga, finishing in 9th place and leading his National team to a silver medal. Unfortunately, luck was not Richard’s side as he tackled the 10km event this week. A runner went down ahead of Richard, which led to a bit of pushing from behind and Richard unfortunately took a tumble. Down but not out, Richard still managed to pick up again and finish the race in 8th place in an excellent time of 44.25. The incident did, however, end Richard’s involvement in the championships and rule him out of the 5km track race. Congratulations to Richard on his achievements prior to this and we wish him a speedy recovery!

We had several Eagles at this fundraiser last night.
