Results of the Liscarroll 8 km road race - 25th August 2007

Looks like a small enough crowd turned out for the first running of the Liscarroll 8 km road race. I wonder if the high entry fee of €15 was responsible for this? Having a prize fund of €2,000 for a race that only had 53 people taking part seems huge.

So, what was the course like?.....hilly/flat? Well organised? Prizes? Refreshments?........Entry fee....do you think it was too expensive or was it fair?........if you did the race, you can leave a comment by clicking the link at the bottom of this post.

It was a nice autumn evening.

Being far from the City, and a Saturday night may have deterred many of the regular runners.
However I got there in less than 50mins from the Tunnel.

I think it was actually EUR 12.00 on the day.

The start line was some distance from the registration-point, leading to several delays while waiting for

all competitors to reach the line.
Jerry Forde was let go several minutes early, which is probably a good idea, so that he does not get

swamped by runners early-on.

There were no incursions onto the course by cars for the first two-thirds, until we met the R522, and

even then there were only a handful of cars.

There were two hilly stretches. But not killers like that one at Ballycotton ;)

I saw only three "distance-markers", curiously marked 5km, 4km, and 3km.
This reverse-order initially gave a false-impression of having covered more ground than actual progress.

There was a water-station at the 5km marker. Nice touch, which I have only seen in one other 5-mile races

this summer, at the Fermoy 5-mile.

There was a medal for every finisher.

There were plenty of sandwiches and even Club-Energizer drinks in the Community Hall, served by the

ladies of the town.

Given the small turnout, and many prize categories, I reckon half the entrants received something. Even

me!

Acoustics in the Hall were pretty bad. Only one loudspeaker.

A good day, a good race. Would recommend to all for next year.

Hi john,i thought that liscarroll was a tough enough course a few hills along the way at the first few miles but the last 2 miles were flat enough a small hill to the finish,had no problem with the entry fee as it was for a good cause,small field but the race was well organized, afterwards in the centre there was different minerals handed out also tea and sandwiches fair play to them for such big prizes with only 53 entries,Lovely medals for all entries look forward to this one again next year please god hope it gets more support next year liscarroll AC deserves great credit for this one.

Regards
John Dunphy

Previously advertised €15 and the Saturday night fixture might of put people off but a nice race all the same. In fact the cost was €12. Some tough hills and in the first mile and also around the 3 mile mark.
First year for this race so hopefully numbers will increase in future years if the club continue to hold this event.
A good club for youths with lots of races for kids before the race. good to see.
