Preview of the Cork BHAA' Turkey Trot'...Sun 13th Dec
The Cork BHAA are holding their annual 'Turkey Trot' in aid of Cork Simon Community next Sunday, the 13th of Dec at 11am. The race venue is the Lee Rowing Club next to Pairc Ui Chaoimh on the Marina in Cork City. This is the exact same place as the 'HSE' race that took place there back in November.

Race........As with the 'HSE' race, this charity event is also over a 4 mile route and they will possibly / probably use the same route. The one major difference with this one is that no watches are allowed! When you enter, you have to give your estimated finish time. The winner of the race is the person who gets closest to their predicted time.

Overall.......this is a very informal race in aid of a local charity with plenty of spot prizes afterwards. As it is the last Cork BHAA race of the season and it's for a good cause, you can expect a good turnout with between 200-300 runners. The current forecast is for dry conditions. I forgot to mention earlier that the organisers would welcome any additional spots if you would care to bring something along.
Other Cork BHAA News........As most of you will know, the Inniscarra 4 mile race at the end of November was called off due to flooding on the local roads. At the time, it was unclear whether the race was just going to be postponed until a later date. The organisers have since decided that there will be no Inniscarra race in 2009 and it will be held as per normal at the end of 2010.

Hey guys

Sunday was my first run since Dublin marathon. I had considered being lazy & just staying in bed but thankfully I got up and realised yet again how much I love running.
Thank you to all the BHAA officials for the brilliant organising throughout the year & to you, John, for your excellent blog!
