Notice...Castleisland 10 mile road race, Kerry - Sun 11th May 2014

The annual 10 mile road race in Castleisland, Co.Kerry is coming up on Sunday the 11th of May...

Considering it's location, it's sure to attract a lot of runners from Kerry, west Limerick and the general west Munster region. Castleisland is only a short distance from Killarney and Tralee and the race should be of particular interest to runners there.

This race is organised by An Ríocht Athletic Club, one of the major clubs in the county. can download the entry form HERE

It's worth mentioning also that money raised from the road race will be used for maintenance of the outdoor track in Castleisland. It is the ONLY 400 metre track in Kerry and is used by athletes from clubs in Kerry and west Limerick. If children are going to be involved in the sport then they need access to proper local facilties like this. Perhaps for that reason alone, this race is worth supporting.

Clare...Results of the Kilnaboy 10 mile road race - Sun 13th Apr 2014

A total of 103 runners turned out for this years Kilnaboy 10 mile road race in Co.Clare. For a race with such a long history, the numbers are disappointing especially when compared to a few years ago. Obviously the demise of the Munster Ten-Mile Spring Classics Series has had a huge impact on numbers but it should still be getting more than it is at present.

Tipperary...Results of the Clonmel 6k race - Wed 9th Apr 2014

This was the second race of four in the Clonmel 6k inter firm road race series sponsored by Morrison BMW of Cahir. Another huge record crowd of 350 turned out for the race, down just four on the record of 354 a week ago. It is also up 19% on the 293 that turned out for the second race in the series last year.

Report from Clonmel AC.....The 2nd race of the very popular Morrison BMW Cahir 6k road race took place in ideal conditions with 350 athletes competing, making it the 2nd highest entry ever in the series, only last week's entry of 354 surpasses it. Once again thanks to the Gardai, the Civil Defence and the many Club stewards who ensured that the whole event was a brilliant success? Thanks also to the many captains who ensured that their teams were out in force. 

Competition was very keen in all the 6 Divisions and looking at the tables with prizes for the 1st 3 teams in each of the Divisions there is still a lot of running still to be done to achieve a top three spot in any of the 6 Divisions.

The race was won by John Fitzgibbon of Fitzgibbon Engineering Thurles in a very good time of 21 mins 6 secs with Patrick Roche (Formula 5) 2nd in 21 mins 21 secs with Derek Nolan (Bulmers A) 3rd in 21 mins 52 secs. The top 3 Ladies were 1st Martina O Dwyer (Formula 5) in 22 mins 3 secs with Clare Annan (Formula 5) 2nd in 22 mins 8 secs and Angela McCann (Buggy Brigade) 3rd in 22 mins 56 secs.

Race 3 will once again go off at 7 pm with all the athletes collecting their number sat the Vocational School and we would like to thank the Vocational School committee for the use of their fine facilities for our race headquarters.

Race 4 will take place on Wednesday 21st April and the format for this event will be Lucky Dip. Here we will have pre selected finishing positions and who ever finishes in these positions will receive a Prize at the Presentation of Prizes which will once again takes place in the Post House from 9pm onwards on Wednesday 21st April. There will be music and post Race Refreshments and it is a great social event, well worth coming to.

Notice...Three Counties Challenge (Tipperary-Waterford-Kilkenny)...Apri-Aug 2014

The Outfield Sports 3 Counties Challenge is a popular race series which runs from April to August every year. Following the success of last year, the organisers Carrick-on-Suir AC have kept the same format with the same 5 races covering the three counties of Waterford, Tipperary and Kilkenny.

Location of race series.....within easy driving distance of Waterford, Dungarvan, Clonmel, Cashel, Thurles and Kilkenny.

Course previews....Faugheen 5k...Portlaw 5m...Deadmans 5m Carrick-on-Suir...Rathgormack 5m...Piltown 10k

Here is some additional info from Carrick-on-Suir AC.......
Carrick-on-Suir's Three-Counties Challenge has become firmly established in the South-East's running calendar since its inception in 2007. The series has grown from a single race with 100 runners to last year's record five-race series with more than a thousand participants. The eighth running of the series will once again start with a 5km race building up to 10km for the final event. This makes the series ideally suited to those who are new to running while also satisfying more experienced runners.

The 2014 series will start on Friday, 25th April with the second running of the Faugheen 5km road race, kindly sponsored by Bobby Fitzgerald Accountants. This race will be run over the well-known, flat route used for the Faugheen 50 motor bike races over the years and was the scene of many PB times in its very first running last year.

This will be followed closely by the O' Neill Pharmacy Tom Jordan Memorial Portlaw 5-mile road race on Friday, 9th May. This race, organised in conjunction with the Portlaw Red Cross, is run over another fast course and last year saw more than 250 entrants.

The third race in the series will see us return to County Tipperary for the ever-popular 'Deadman's 5' mile road race on Friday, 6th June at 7:30pm. Now in its ninth year, this race starts outside the beautiful Ormond Castle in the centre of Carrick-on-Suir, taking in a scenic route around the Deadman's Boreen (hence the name!) and finishing in a lovely straight stretch along the tree-lined town park.

The penultimate race of the series sees us return to County Waterford and the picturesque village of Rathgormack for the AutoPower Rathgormack 5 on Friday, 11th July. This challenging, undulating course is an ever-popular addition to the series, thanks mainly to the beautiful scenery of the Comeragh Mountains and the superb home cooking in the hiking centre after the race.

Finally, the series will end in County Kilkenny with the Morris Oil Piltown 10km road race on Friday, 1st August at 7:30pm. Another scenic trek, the race starts on the grounds of Kildalton Horticultural College and winds its way by the lake and tree-lined avenue before completing a circuit of the flat roads around Piltown. Another firm favourite in the series, 2014 will be the seventh running of this race.

The club is delighted to welcome back local specialist running store, Outfield Sports of Carrick-on-Suir as series sponsor for the eighth year ( now promoting the store's new website, hence the series title - the 3 Counties Challenge). We are also delighted to announce that running brand Ron Hill are also involved as title sponsors. We are very grateful to our sponsors for their continued support and it is great to see the same businesses supporting our races year after year. As usual, the message from the club is for all series participants to return the support to these businesses who have been good enough to help us, despite the harsh economic climate.

The prize fund for the series will be in excess of €6,000 with prizes in all the usual age categories. There will also be a team prize for each race as well as numerous spot prizes. All races in the series have full AAI permits and are accurately measured. For further information on the series contact Mark (086-1608165) or Alan (051-641826).
