East Cork AC announce their Winter 3km Series -
East Cork AC have just announced that their popular Winter 3km series of road races which will start on next Tuesday, the 16th of October. There are 7 races in the series. They are basically on every 3rd Tuesday after the first one, with the last one being held in late February. They are a great excuse to get out and run on what can be very dull and dreay Winter evenings. They are also very good speed sessions and are a great way to improve your times. As each race is over the exact same course, you can compare your times and see if you are getting faster over the series.
A few years back, they used to get about 40 to 50 at each race. Last year however, they started getting 100+ so I think they are going to introduce some additional stewarding this year to cope with the numbers. Note however that you should wear a reflective bib. As the saying goes... ' Be safe, be seen '
I will post more details about this race here next weekend.
Details from their flyer are posted below...
