Preview of the Cork BHAA 'Turkey Trot' 4 Mile race...Sun 12th Dec 2010

There is no shortage of races this weekend. There is the Cross Country race in CIT on Friday evening, the Marathon & Half-Marathon in Clonakilty on Saturday and on Sunday, there is a charity Santa run in Mitchelstown as well as the annual Cork BHAA Turkey Trot in Cork City.

The Cork BHAA are holding their annual 'Turkey Trot' in aid of Cork Simon Community next Sunday, the 12th of Dec at 11am. The race venue is the Lee Rowing Club next to Pairc Ui Chaoimh on the Marina in Cork City. The course is very flat so expect some fast times.

Race........Please note that with this race, 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.

More info below...
Venue: Lee Rowing Club.....Distance: 4 Miles.....Predict your own time......Entry Fee: €10.....All proceeds from this event including donation from the BHAA will go to the Simon Community. Runners are asked to bring a spot prize from their companies.

Hi Brian

There used to be a delay of about 2-3 days but recently, it seems to be a bit longer. At a guess, I would expect them to be out sometime early this week?

Brian - I think that I ran a PB too as did a friend of mine. It must have been a fast course or at least it felt like one. ;o)

Waiting patiently.
