My name is Aine Mc Sweeney and I was at the race tonight. I lost a car key with a black fob on the walk up to the start line. If anyone found the key (it was on it's own, not attached to anything) and still has it or has handed it in, please contact me on 087 9258772

10/10 St. Finbarr's A.C - great course, great atmosphere, great stewards as always

GP said...

Big thanks not just to my own running partners Alan and Jimmy but the pacers for 90mins especially race number 353 I think? - at the point where I looked and sounded more like something horrible from the walking dead, coupled with my own partners, he was super with words of encouragement and drive and just showed the good of these type of events. Many thanks. Gerard

Excellent race. Well done to all involved.
General question as a newish runner. Is it reasonable/acceptable/allowed to have a cyclist completing the route coaching an athlete. Seemed bizarre...

Well done to all.. Gamble to try it on a Saturday evening but think it was a success. Great event, lovely course, easy to enter and lovely cuppa afterwards in the pavilion overlooking the river..
please make a permanent fixture..

As long as the coach wasn't towing the runner with a rope then it's perfectly ok to have words with a runner.

Echo the above comments, really enjoyable. Couldn't fault a thing really. Only a small gripe about the start being slightly delayed. 30 runners held it up, bit annoying. Really think the Saturday evening worked well, hopefully it's kept like that for future events. Well done St Finbarrs and John Buckley's.

Trevor Murphy said...

Fantastic event and great spread afterwards, you could not get a better route ! Thank you to the organisers

Paul Buchanan said...

Have to say I rather enjoyed that - thank you

Great race great athmosphere all around. Really enjoyed it . Much better having it on a Saturday night and the tops are super this year , Really nice and stylish . Very well organized and lets hope for the same next year . Super grub afterwards. Thanks to everyone involved for the planning and marshalling and the support. especially coming just after mile 7 my legs were dead and words of encouragement from the lad on the bridge got me to the finish . Take a bow everyone .

What's the point in having 3 70 min pacers if all 3 stick together and power home in 68 minutes. I know someone who went with the 70 min group and they burned him up. Clueless. Over all this is a great event on a nice course with a fab spread. Pacing isn't for everyone tho and I think that was fairly evident last night. Also. Could someone in city council find the funding to repair the roads in the area. They really are awful.

Some chip numbers didn't register, who should be contacted about this?

John Desmond said...

Give the chip timing company the info... http://sportstiming.ie/contact/

My, you're very impatient! Event started no more than two minutes 'late' starting. Time to go for a nice relaxing run��

Dave Hanlon said...

Many thanks to the two 60 minute pacers - perfect timing lads and especially thanks for the extra encouragement near the end. First time under 60 - great course for a fast time.

I must say I loved this race. A PB for me! Great atmosphere before and after. Delighted it was on Saturday and should be kept that way. Great course and a great designed dri-fit top. Thanks to everyone involved!

Great race and superbly organised. Well done to all the volunteers. As regards pacing - the pacers sacrificed their own race to provide a guide time and maybe they got it wrong but surely each runner is responsible for their own race. There are mile markers so if you keep an eye on your watch.....

Tom Daly said...

Agree about the 60 pacers,two top class lads,great encouragement and bang on time.Watched the so called 70 pacers come in and they looked happy out with themselves,awful for people tryna break 70

Anonymous said...

I was with 70 pacers for most of the race but it helped me get a PB. Thought it was strange that they didn't keep to the 70 minutes!

It was great to see the winner, Freddy Keron, jogging back down the Marina cheering on finishers nearly 20 mins after he finished himself.

Great Event. I think the 70 minute pacers should be investigated independently and if they are banned for a few races so be it.

Anonymous said...

The 70 pacers should be named and shamed.
I blew up after 7 miles trying to keep up with them.

John Desmond said...

With respect to the 70 min pacers...they are just volunteers like everyone else. Maybe things didn't go as planned on the day but they shouldn't be 'named and shamed' or hounded over it. Lesson learned, move on.

Anonymous said...

Fair enough John but it was them moving on too fast that has caused all this hassle in the first place.

I was with the 70 mins pacers all the way. Good pacing as I came in around 69 mins. The only mile that was anyway fast for the 70 min group was the 1st at 6:35 ish and that is to be expected when things get a bit 'exciting' at the start. The lead pacer even remarked to slow down a little at start of Mile 2. The rest of the miles averaged 6:50 ish. There were encouraging words all the way around from the 70 min pacers eg. 'lets all get to Blackrock Castle' & 'lets all get to pedestrian flyover bridge'...etc At around mile 9, the pacers even slowed to encourage those behind. Can't ask for better than that. Thanks lads. PS. One of the 70 min pacers even did the 160km Rebel Tour Cycle that morning!

I ran the first five miles with the 70 min pacers and while their pacing was unusual they did keep people informed, eg at mile five they were telling the runners that they were a minute ahead of schedule. They were encouraging at all times, providing water to those who missed some at water stations etc.
Different strokes for different folks.

1minute up at half way is very poor pacing, people were trying for sub 70 not sub 69. Surely these pacers can see that they ahead at mile 1 or 2 and try to run 7 minutes after. Not good enough when you pay €25 for a flat course and the pacers go out too fast

Trevor O neill said...

Are you serious. Try pacing a race and then let us know how you get on . As a pacer they give up there race for others.

The 70 pacers may have been a bit explosive towards the end but kept things very well under control overall. They could have made a much worse mess of things.

Lads some of this is funny. The pacers go out to do the best they can.
I have always found them so supportive and helpful and funny and encouraging at all races...
If this criticism continues then races will stop providing pacers as it was unheard of a few years ago..
Ultimately a persons pace is their own responsibility and even a simple stop watch and check at mile marks will tell you what you need to know..
If you then don't agree with the pacers pace, then work away yourself.
As for what do I expect for €25:-
Easy entry, good t-shirt, race start on time, chip timing, good stewards, clock at finish line, water on the course and hopefully a nice cuppa afterwards.
These were all provided excellently

If pacers are not going to attempt to do the correct pace there assigned then maybe it up to the organisers to not have pacers. Then all runners can go off their watches

I can't believe all the negative comments on the 70 minute pacers. At the end of the day its up to yourself to watch your own clock. Would have thought they are only a guide. If they were too fast drop off them. I ran the race and really enjoyed everything about it especially being off the busy roads and having a path for most off the route. Pacers lads at the end of the day are runners like everyone else who gave up their own race for all the competitors. Looking forward to next year. Well done to all the volunteers and stewards
