Ardmore 5 Mile & Races this week...Mon 18th to Sun 24th of August 2008
Last week, we had no races in Cork with 2 races elsewhere in Munster. I availed of the break to venture down to Ardmore in West Waterford to do the 5 mile race there on Friday evening. There were a few of the regular Cork faces scattered amongst the sea of White and Blue singlets who also had the same idea! The extra runners obviously made an impact because it looked like they got a lot more than last years figure of 181. Overall, it was a well organised race...nice country roads, scenic area, loads of stewards and enough sandwiches afterwards to feed a small army ;o) .......For anyone who did this race, you can find the results HERE.

This week, we have 2 races in Cork while there is nothing else in Munster. On Wednesday evening, the Cork BHAA are holding their 'Army/Navy' 5 mile road race in the Naval base in Ringaskiddy. Note that the start time is 7:30pm, not 8pm!! I'll preview it here on Tuesday morning.
On Sunday the 24th, there is the Liscarroll 5 mile race in North Cork. I'll look at that on Friday morning.
