Notice : Ballynonty 10 mile road race, Tipperary - Sun 28th July 2019

This 10 mile road race is coming up on Sunday the 28th of July 2019 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.

Looking through the results for this race, the one thing that stands out are all the fast times. There are plenty of 10k races around the country that get large fields but most of the top times are pretty slow.

A quick glance at the Coliitle 10k results shows the top 5 men were under 32 minutes and the top 3 women were under 38 minutes.

In terms of a quality 10k field, this has to be one of the best races in Munster.

Some stats from the organising club Dundrum AC...

First 5 men all run 31 something.
41 runners under 40min.
20 different clubs in the top 22 runners.

43 runners under 40min.
19 different clubs represented in the top 22 athletes crossing the finish line!
Killian Dunne Wheelchair athlete complete the race 10k 28:20. Breaking the old course record which had been held by Gerry Forde.

Notice: Coillte 10k road race, Dundrum, Tipperary - Wed 3rd July 2019

This popular 10k race in coming up in the village of Dundrum, Co.Tipperary on Wednesday the 3rd of July 2019. 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: Dromcollogher Carnival 4 mile road race, Co.Limerick - Mon 1st July 2019

The annual Dromcollogher Carnival 4 mile road race is coming up on Monday evening, the 1st of July 2019 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 : Run Killarney Half-Marathon & 10k - Sat 20th July 2019

One of the biggest races in Kerry is the annual Killarney Half-Marathon & 10k and it's coming up on Saturday the 20th of July 2019.

https://runkillarney.com/?utm_source=runninginmunster&utm_medium=bannerad


The half marathon starts at Moll's Gap at 8:00am and follows one of the most scenic roads in the country to the finish line at the Gleneagle Hotel in Killarney. Participants in the half marathon will be taken by bus from Killarney to the start line at Moll's Gap.

What makes this half-marathon unique is that the road is closed and this is the only time of the year that a race is held on this road. Normally, you can't run on this road as it's way too busy with traffic going from Killarney to Kenmare.

The race website is HERE

 

The 10k starts at 9:30am and finishes at the Gleneagle Hotel and takes in a loop inside the national park near Muckross House.



Entry for each race includes...Customised finisher medal...Dry fit T-shirt...Chip timing... Prizes... Massage at finish line... Hot tubs... Post-race party... Officially measured course

Notice: East Cork Harbour Marathon, Half-Marathon & 10k - Sat 10th Aug 2019

This event up coming up on Saturday the 10th of August 2019...and there is a choice of a full 26.2 mile marathon, a 13.1 mile half-marathon and 10km race (6.2m).

https://eastcorkmarathon.com/


This is the fourth year of this event and based on the success of the first three years, it should get a good turnout again.

The entry link is https://register.primoevents.com/ps/event/EastCorkHarbourMarathon2019


The race HQ is at Aghada GAA club which is near Rostellan on the Midleton-Whitegate road.


For more info on the three races and on how to enter...

From the organisers.... Since our inaugural event in 2016 we have set out to create the best possible running experience available to athletes in this country. Through a mixture of hard work and the dedication of a large voluntary team we have succeeded in firmly establishing ourselves on the annual racing calendar. We were recently honoured to be awarded ‘Best 10K race in Ireland 2018’ in the Running in Ireland Awards.

Thus far, we have held three sellout events and have raised over €24,500 for Marymount Hospice in addition to €38,000 for other local voluntary community initiatives.

The event is a true celebration of family and community in East Cork with over 300 volunteers of all ages helping on the day. Over 1000 athletes take part annually with a free BBQ and family fun day awaiting participants at the finish line.

One of the themes of this year's event is "Go Green With ECHM". It is an environmental awareness campaign whereby we are placing a strong emphasis on recycling, reducing waste and introducing renewable energy solutions with electric cars leading out the athletes. We are also hoping to introduce non-plastic solutions to hydrate the athletes as seen in the recent London Marathon (https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/26/business/london-marathon-seaweed-water-bottles/index.html). This is proving to be a very popular initiative with our other partner sponsors and the athletes themselves with an unprecedented demand for entries this year.

We are busy planning for this year's event which will be held on Saturday 10th August 2019! We are depending on the generosity of our sponsors in order to build on the success of the event and to help us in achieving our goal of becoming the best running event in the country. To help us in this goal we are delighted to have Cork 96FM on board as our official media partners again this year.

The map below shows the full marathon route. It starts near Rostellan Woods and between miles 3 and 8, it takes in a lovely stretch by East Ferry. After 10 miles, it's most out on quiet country roads with some nice coastal views from miles 14-22. For the last few miles, you are looking over the harbour.


The half-marathon route is on nice quiet country roads to the south-east of Aghada...

The 10k course is out and back...
