Record month, Dungarvan 10 and Race Calendar

1) Record Traffic........First of all, January 2009 turned out to be a record month for traffic to the Running in Cork website. By the end of the month, it had got 10,735 hits, an increase of about 800 on the previous record which was set in June 2008 with the Cork City Marathon & Relay.

It's hard to believe that only 2 years ago, it got 305 hits for the month of January 2007!! With an average of over 8,000 hits per month, the annual traffic total is now up around 100k per year. This would make it by far the most popular running related website in Cork, probably the biggest in Munster and should be up amongst a few others on the national scene.

2) Dungarvan 10......There was a great turn out for this race last Sunday. If you did not already see them, the most up to date results and some links to photos are up on the Running in Munster website.

3) Race Calendar........On the right hand side of this race, you'll probably notice that I keep a short race calendar of the races coming up. Usually, I updated it at the start of every month so that the current month and next month would be shown. By the end of the month, you could only see 1 month ahead. With some of the longer races, people like to know well in advance what is coming up. I have now extended the calendar by a month so that it will now show 2 to 3 months ahead. Looking at it, there is certainly no shortage of races in the next few months.
