Training Programmes for the 2020 Dungarvan 10 mile...

Last call for the Dungarvan 10 training programmes. I'm closing it off on Wed 20th Nov.


Every year, I put together training programmes for groups of people training for the John Treacy 10 mile road race in Dungarvan.

If anyone is interested in following a programme tailored especially for a 10 mile race then here are the details...

a) A tailored plan based on each individual.

b) Aimed at club & non-club runners who are targeting finish times between 65 and 105 mins.

c) The training programme is sent out by email every two weeks. You will need to provide feedback on your training as this will determine future sessions.


The programme starts on Monday the 18th of November and the cost is €30.

If you are interested then email johndesmondrunning AT gmail DOT com and outline how many days a week you want to train, your target time and some of your recent race times... 5k, 10mile, half-marathon.

Spotted on Twitter... Cork runner John Robinson


I spotted this photo on the parkrun Ireland Twitter feed... John Robinson was the person who compiled the overall standings for the Ballycotton Summer Series for many years.

While John was a handy runner back in the day, he can now be found helping out at the 5k parkrun in Tralee.

Poor turnout for Munster Senior Cross Country - Sun 10th Nov 2019

Just catching on some previous results. This years Munster Senior Cross Country Championships were held in Conna in NE Cork on Sunday the 17th of November 2019.

The results can be found HERE

The numbers look to be even worse than recent years with just 3 out of the 6 Munster counties represented in the inter-county competition in both the mens and womens events. The 3 counties were Cork, Tipperary and Clare.

This essentially meant that county teams were getting medals for turning up.

This is the same situation as it was for the Novice competition in Limerick in October. Just 3 out of 6 counties made up the inter county teams then as well (61 men & 35 women).

In the Senior inter club competition, there was just 7 men's teams from 53 runners. In the women's race, there were just 28 runners and 5 women's teams... and that's from all of Munster.

Lottery system announced for 2020 Dublin Marathon...


Post updated for revised entry conditions for 2017, 2018 & 2019 participants.

Post updated with the 'Good for Age' entry info for club runners. It is set at a level which will exclude the bulk of club runners who will have to go with the lottery option.

Update: Fri 15th Nov 2019... It looks as if that around 16,000 places for the 2020 Dublin City Marathon have been snapped up by those granted priority access. This leaves an estimated 6,400 places for the lottery entrants!

In a statement, race director said that the 16,100 figure was “higher than we expected”. He added...“It goes to show how valued an entry into the KBC Dublin Marathon has become and it's heartwarming to us as organisers to see the demand continue to grow. The lottery closes at the end of the month and we also need to discuss with Gardai and the city about what number we can take next year. Until all that happens then we don’t know exact numbers.”

It is not known at present if they will be allowed to add additional numbers by the city authorities.

Update from the organisers (31st Oct 2019)... KBC Dublin Marathon, have made the decision to guarantee a race entry for anyone who has participated in one of the last three editions of the KBC Dublin Marathon namely, the 2017, 2018 or 2019 event. Eligible participants will be able to guarantee their place in the 2020 event provided they enter within 72 hours of receiving a unique URL enabling them to do so. The URL will be issued at 12 noon on Friday 1st November. 



From the organisers....The KBC Dublin Marathon race organisers have today announced that registration for the 2020 Dublin Marathon will occur through a lottery system instead of the first-come, first-served online process. This decision was made as a result of the increased demand for race entries. 

Notice: Douglas Credit Union Charity 5k in Tramore Valley Park - Sun 1st Dec 2019

This brand new charity 5k is coming up in Tramore Valley Park in Cork City on Sunday the 1st of December 2019 at 11am.


It will use the exact same 5k course that was used for the recent Cork BHAA HSE 5k there.

Entries... The entry fee is €10 and you can enter online HERE

You can also enter on the day. Please note that there will be a draw for a free pair of NIKE AIR PEGASUS shoes for all those who pre-enter courtesy of John Buckley Sports.

https://www.popupraces.ie/race/douglas-credit-union-5k/


***

All proceeds go towards the following two charities...

Cork Cancer Care Centre - a ‘home away from home’ where vital support is provided to all those touched by Cancer including free counselling as well as a range of complimentary therapies.

Cork Rainbow Club - a charity who’s aim is to to help and support Children, Teens, Young Adults and their families living with autism

Access by car is of course via the South Link Road. There is a pedestrian entrance from near Douglas Shopping Centre but it's a fair bit away.

The 5k course itself is basically two 2.5km loops...



There are no real hills to speak of and the course is a mix of a compact gravel surface and tarmac.

More info about the park at this LINK

Considering its central location and proximity to the South Rung Road, it should get a good turnout.

From the organisers... Douglas Credit Union are pleased to announce their 5K run/walk in aid of our 2 designated charities:
Rainbow Club – a charity who’s aim is to to help and support Children, Teens, Young Adults and their families living with autism
Cork Cancer Care Centre –  a ‘home away from home’ where vital support is provided to all those touched by Cancer including free counselling as well as a range of complimentary therapies.

Registration is online: https://www.popupraces.ie/race/douglas-credit-union-5k/
On the day we will have a marquee set up for registration/collection of numbers outside the small building near half moon lane.

This a family friendly event which we hope will rasie much needed funds for our designated charities.

All are welcome – runners, joggers, walkers, young and old.
There will be prize money for the top 3 male/female finishers.
Light refreshments will be provided on the day.
Raffle on the day While there is plenty of parking in the park, it might be an idea to carpool if at all possible.

Friday Fun - Temptation...

Anyone you know??😂
