Races this weekend in Munster....Sun 22nd Nov 2009

There are 2 road races this weekend, both of them on Sunday the 22nd of November.

Cork.......the Cork BHAA are holding a 4 mile road race near Inniscarra in the countryside to the west of Cork city. More details on the Running in Cork website. This race starts at 11:30am.
Please note that this race in Cork has been cancelled until a later date due to local flooding.

Kerry......the 3rd race in the 5km 'Feet First' series takes place in Killarney at 11am. There was a very respectable turnout of 174 for the 1st race in October and the results can be seen in this earlier post. The weather played havoc with the recording equipment for the 2nd race so there were no results for this one.

Details.......Entries on the day only cost €5 at the Kerry Parents and Friends Centre near the catheral on the western side of the town. If you are coming from the Cork direction, take the bypass as if you were heading towards Killorglin and take the left back into the town at the 2nd roundabout...(after the roundabout with the turnoff for Tralee).

You can find a flyer for the series on the right hand side of this page.

Update Sunday 12:30pm......In an earlier e-mail from the organisers on Saturday evening, everything looked ok for this race and they said it was going ahead.
However due to continuous overnight rain, todays 5km race in Killarney has been cancelled due to flooding.
