Some info from the organisers.......People who have ran the first two races in the Summer Series (Ballyandreen and Shanagarry) are automatically entered for tonight’s race. The numbers are in alphabetical order and can be seen on the wall in the community centre - It would help if people could find their number in advance and ask for it at one of the entry desks.  Numbers available here

Again, it would be appreciated if people had the correct fee of €5 ready to speed up the process. Entries will open from 6pm onwards with the race starting at 8pm. For new people on the night (who haven’t run the two races), there will be a separate entry desk as normal – entry fee again €5.
With the huge increase in participants, the start of races now poses its own problems. For safety reasons, we urge people to line up in accordance with their ability. Unless you are running under 30 minutes you have no business at the front – the race is over five miles and there will be plenty of opportunity to move up after the initial rush, so pace yourself accordingly. It goes without saying that headphones should not be worn at any stage.....Ballycotton Running Promotions

Thanks a million,

Dublin City Marathon News

Our man Brian Healy  with Dublin City Marathon has been on to me to say that entry is only guaranteed until the 31st July and that entries are already up by four thousand on last year Whilst he dose not expect it to be full so soon but why take chances if you already intend doing it.

Cloyne 4Km

Once again we had a fine crew out in Cloyne supporting local races and once again we had some fine runs. Eileen Leahy finished second overall and Paul Spiteri was our first man home. Anne Marie Perry had a very fine run especially considering she at last "Took The Challenge " and did the Donoughmore 7mile last Friday night.

Run Killarney Half Marathon

Great running from our crew down in Killarney this morning. With a tough start because of the fog obscuring the scenery but they way these guys were running there was not much time for looking at the scenery anyway. Well done all  David Moynihan 1.24 Eugene McCarthy 1.25 Declan Dorgan 1.28. and Maire Walsh also had a fine run .

Donoughmore 7

( Thanks to Kathleen O'Connell for the photo)
As always we were well represented at this tough one and our members recorded fine runs including Ann Marie Perry, Karol Watson, Donie O'Connell, Michael McNamara along with Alan Morley who had a particularly fine run getting himself another PB. That's two PBs for him in the one week.

Best of luck to everyone running this weekend. There are a few races on including Donoughmore 7 Mile on Friday ( a great race but a tough one) and Cloyne on Sunday.
Best of luck to David Moynihan and all the crew  who will be doing the half marathon in Killarney on Saturday. What a way to start your holiday. Please keep me posted on any other events and races members take part in  Danny

Carrigtwohill 5Km

Another fantastic local race which had some great running. As always we has a great turnout from our club. There were over five hundred runners there and the course record was broken by both male and female runners Alan O'Shea and Aoife Cooke.We had several PBs once again including Alan Morley who is just getting back into his stride. A picture below shows the Great Dick O'Brien who was running his last competitive race many people might not know Dick but he was a great runner  and almost everyone will know his song "We Are All Here Again For The Ballycotton 10" which is played at the start of the famous race every year.
