With thoughts now turning to Half-Marathons and Marathons in the Autumn, the club has no fewer than 6 organised runs this weekend. While most are medium to long runs in Cork City and Carrigaline, the club also had a hill interval session in Currabinny Woods to sharpen up for the Summer races. This was organised by Ed Fitzgerald and John Desmond and was held on the forest trails in this stunning location in Cork Harbour.
