Limercik... Results of the Bilboa AC 10k & 5k - Fri 15th June 2018

It's always interesting to look at the numbers for a race like this which has been going for a number of years to see if there are any trends. This year, the 10k dropped to 96 finishers which is the lowest since at least 2007 (not sure what year the race started?). The 5k was also down with 34 finishers.

It seems to follow a trend of other races in Munster as the number are dropping gradually. It's hard to know what the exact reason is but there does seem to be a drop off in adults under the age of 35 coming into the sport.

449 32.14 1 Declan Moore Bilboa AC Men
404 34.24 2 John Kinsella Bilboa AC Men
490 34.58 3 Paul Fitzgerald Limerick AC Men

Notice...Dromcollogher Carnival 4 mile road race, Co.Limerick - Mon 2nd July 2018

The annual Dromcollogher Carnival 4 mile road race is coming up on Monday evening, the 2nd of July 2018 at 8pm...

As a race, it may not be as high profile as say those located closer to say Limerick or Cork City but it is an event with a lot of character and a long history. The race was originally started back in the time of the original running boom in the late 70's and early 80's by Christy Brosnan and Joe Quaid of North Cork AC. The original idea was for it to be part of the Dromcollogher Carnival which has been going since the 1940's and for the race to take place on Monday evening, a tradition that survives to this day.

In it's heyday, the race used to attract some of the top runners from all over Munster even though the prizes were always modest in comparison to other races at the time. On one occasion, Liam O'Brien from Cork won the race the day after winning the National 3000m steeplechase title! The triangle shaped course started and finished in the main square of the town much to the delight of the crowds. This did however mean that the race was in fact 'slightly' longer than the advertised 4 miles ;o)

One of the other unusual features of the race at the time was that the winner received a small porcelain figurine. One of the biggest employers at that time in the town was Irish Dresden, a German company which made high quality collectable porcelain items in the town which employed over 60 people, a huge number in what was and still is a rural area.

West Limerick AC are helping out with the organisation of the race and they are putting up a cup in memory of Christy Brosnan who unfortunately has now passed away. This replaces the old cup which was named after Marky O'Shea who used to run in the local races of the late 70's and early 80's barefoot, a long time before minimalist running and Vibram Five Fingers became all the rage ;o)

Getting there.....Dromcollogher is located to the west of Charleville near the Limerick - Cork border. If you are coming from say Limerick city then the easiest way is probably to head south towards Cork and turn off at Charleville and follow the directions for Newtownshandrum, Milford and Dromcollogher. If you are travelling north from Cork then turn off at Buttevant and go via Liscarroll.

As you enter the town from the east then you should see that the road forks into two where the central square is. Take the right here, drive a few hundred metres on what is a very straight road and you will pass the start line just opposite a service station. The GAA hall where the entries will be taken is just beyond this on the left.

Notice...Coillte 10k road race, Dundrum, Tipperary - Wed 4th July 2018

This popular 10k race in coming up in the village of Dundrum, Co.Tipperary on Wednesday the 4th of July 2018. In terms of fast 10k courses, this must surely be one of the fastest in Munster if not the country.

Dundrum is a small village just 9 miles or so west of Cashel in the south of Tipperary...

Organised by Dundrum Athletic Club, this race is noted for being a flat fast course. As well of there being no hills, the course consists of multiple long straight sections rather than the more usual twists and turns. I've previewed many courses on this site but this one is really fast.

Entries......The entry fee is €15 on the night.

The map below shows where everything is. For spectators...note the points A, B and C. If you move between these points which are just over 100m apart you can see the athletes at approx. 0.25miles , 2.4miles, 3.2miles and again at 5.4miles.

Course Preview......The 10k course is essentially two laps of a 5k loop. A full preview of the course with maps, description, photos, etc can be seen HERE

Many races have different traditions. Some give out t-shirts, some mugs. In the case of the Coillte 10k, they give out a quality embroidered hand towel given to every finisher. and they have been doing this for over 20 years. Even on years where they had run out of towels on the night, they hand delivered them to these people in the following weeks.

The Tim Crowe Trophy is presented on the night to the first Tipperary Athlete in honour of his 24 national titles won in the early 1900s, who was from the village of Dundrum.

Notice...Ballynonty 10 mile road race, Tipperary - Sun 29th July 2018

This 10 mile road race is coming up on Sunday the 29th of July 2018 at 11am. It could probably be best described as a 'back to basics, no frills' 10 mile road race.

There is no chip timing, no dry fit tops, no medals, no online entries, no early bird entry, no late bird entry, no goodie bags or any of the other stuff. Just a good quality old fashioned 10 mile road race over an accurately measured course for a very modest price with a great spread afterwards.

The village of Ballynonty is in South Tipperary and is just a few miles off the M8 motorway.

The race is organised by Ballynonty AC who have a website HERE.

Notice...Annerville 10k road race, Clonmel - Sun 13th May 2018

Located in South Tipperary, this 10 km road race should be of interest to a lot of runners.

From the organisers Clonmel AC.......Annerville 10k Classic May 13th
This very popular fixture on the running calendar takes place on Sunday 13th May at 10.50am. this year we are once again delighted to have Tipperary Water as our sponsors. 

This year’s event will have the same route as last year, which received great reviews, with the start at the carpark at the back of the Clonmel Arms Hotel on the Quay and the finish will be at the Sporting Press on the Davis Road. This new course is relatively flat and ideal for a PB over this Classic distance. The Race Headquarters is at Colaiste Cheitinn, the Mall and we will be taking entries there from 9 am onwards. The entry fee is 12 Euros and this year we have designed a special medallion for this event. For this event please note that there are Road Closures in place and we appreciate the cooperation of the public, especially in the Irishtown area.

Last year’s race attracted a very impressive entry of 347 athletes, the winner was Sergio Ciobanu of Clonliffe Harriers in a very impressive time of 30 mins 27 secs, with Philip Harty (Ferrybank AC) 2nd in 31 mins 59 secs and William Stephens (Coolquill AC) 3rd in 32 mins 47 secs. The top three women were 1st Carmel Fitzgibbon (Thurles Crokes) 38 mins 56 secs, 2nd Lorraine Bolster (Mallow AC) 39 mins 27secs and 3rd Aine Roche (Clonmel AC) 40 mins 4 secs. We wish Sergio the very best as he competes later this year for Ireland in the Marathon at the European Athletics Championships in Berlin in August.

This year we have an extensive prize list to the value of 1500 Euros and they are as follows: 1st 5 Senior Men, 1st 2 Men over 40, 45, 50 and 55, 1st Man over 60, 65 and 70, 1st 5 Senior Women, 1st 2 Women over 35, 40, 45, 50 and 1st Woman over 55, 60 and 65. We will also have Spot prizes for down the field finishers.

As regards entries we would appreciate it very much if local participants can come early on Sunday morning and register and help ease the rush as we get closer to the Start time. This would help athletes who have travelled a distance to enter at their ease. This year’s race will be chip timed and results will be posted on
