Adare 10k and Dungarvan 10k Road Races on Sunday, 2nd of March 2008...
This weekend is a quiet one in Cork with no local road races. There are however, two 10 km races in the adjoining counties of Limerick and Waterford. Now, if you are doing the Ballycotton 10 on Sunday week, the last thing you should do is a hard 10 km race the week before! If however, you are not doing the Ballycotton 10 or you can control yourself ;o) and run the race at a slow pace, then you have a choice of 2 if you are prepared to travel.

Adare 10k, 2nd of March, Limerick...2pm
This race takes place in Adare which is not too far from Patrickswell and the main Cork to Limerick road. I am told that the course is a little hilly. Entry fee is €10 and there is a T-shirt for the first 200 finishers. If you want to have a look at the race flyer, the link is HERE. I don't know exactly where the race starts from but I'm sure if you arrive in Adare early, you'll see some runners warming up. I guess it might be signposted anyway.

Dungarvan 10k, 2nd of March, West Waterford...2pm
This 10 km race follows roughly the same route as the Dungarvan 10 mile road race in that it starts near the 2 mile mark and finishes around the 8 mile mark. That being the case, there should be some nice countryside running for the first 5 miles of the race. The race HQ is in the Dungarvan GAA grounds and everything will be signposted on the day. Entry is €8 and the race starts at 2pm.
