From what I hear, there were about 190 runners in this 4 mile race on the beach in Redbarn near Youghal in East Cork. It certainly was'nt an easy race with a stiff North-Easterly breeze making the going tough at times and the odd patch of soft sand making it difficult to run. All of this though was outweighed by the fact that a race on a beach is still a novel event and makes a nice change from all of the road races. It's also a great way of keeping an eye on your team mates and making sure they're not slacking off !! ;o)

Anyone like to comment on the race...??? How did you think it compared to the usual road races? Like or dislike running on sand?
"It was a good race, not as cold and wet as last year. Jogging on sand is not easy, and I prefer the road. But it's nice to support all the BHAA races.........Maggie"
