Calendar passes 600k pageviews


I just noticed this morning that the race calendar on the Running in Cork blog has just passed 600,000 page views! There is a copy of this kept on the Running in Munster blog and that's up to almost 274,000.

It started off many moons ago as a 'Cork only' race calendar but it soon became obvious that this was of little benefit. People in east Cork are interested in Waterford races, north Cork runners want to know about Limerick events and so on.

It now covers races roughly south of a line stretching from the the north of Clare to the north of Wexford taking in all the Munster counties as well as Kilkenny, Carlow and Wexford. This allows runners in Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Waterford a way of keeping track of events in their own and adjoining counties.

I need to spend a bit of time on it though as a good few races have popped up since my last major update. As always, the calendar is at http://corkrunning.blogspot.ie/p/calendar.html

Thanks for all your effort John. I'm not a member of any running club, and this is my go-to site for checking out the upcoming races.

Would echo the comments above. Brilliant resource. First port of call for keeping abreast if what is on, and for checking results afterwards.

This site is the runner's bible for races - we would be lost without it. We all owe you a debt John, great work......
