Races in Munster - Fri 17th to Sun 19th Apr 2009

This is a very busy weekend for road races in Munster with no less than 7 events planned.

Fri 17th.....
There is the 6 mile Marine Climb in Dungarvan, West Waterford. This was previewed in the previous post.

Sat 18th...
Clare - The Healthy Heart 10 km Fun Run starts at 12 noon in Kilmaley, Co.Clare. This small village is located about 10kms west of Ennis. The best way to get there is probably to take the Ennis bypass and look for the R474 to Milltown Malbay. About 10kms out the road, look for a turn off left for the vilage of Kilmaley. There is a race flyer HERE.

Kerry - The Jack & Jill 10 km charity fun run starts at 3pm in Kenmare, Co. Kerry. This is a hilly 10 km course taking in part of the old Kenmare to Killarney road at the start. More details can be found on this website.

Sun 19th...
Wexford - There is a half-marathon in Wexford town starting at 8:30am. This event however is sold out and is now closed. More details HERE.

Tipperary - The Tipperary AAI Senior Road Championships start at 12 noon in Two Mile Borris which is just to the east of Thurles. Some details HERE.

Kilkenny - The Every Woman 4 Mile road race takes place in Kilkenny with a 12 noon start. Runners can enter on the day up to 11am. More details HERE.

Cork - There is a mountain race up Claragh mountain near Millstreet starting at 7pm. Needless to say, it's off road but offers a different experience to the usual road race. If you don't have the proper shoes, an old pair of runners would do fine. More details HERE.
