Weather forecast for next Sunday...

With a band of high pressure over the country, it looks as if we will have dry weather for the Ballycotton '10' race next Sunday. It may be cloudy but it's not exactly clear yet.

Met Eireann say..."Both Sunday and Monday will remain dry with sunny spells in most areas though it will be cloudier in the south and west."

The pedicted temperature is 8 deg C.

The most important forecast in this instance however is the wind. At roughly 20 kms/hr and coming from the south-east, it is essentially behind the runners for the first half of the race. When we turn back for home around 5.5 miles, it will be a headwind all the ways to the finish.

Note that this wind is coming in off the sea and will feel cold. It's not an issue once you warm up and start running but it is when you are standing around before the start or walking back after the finish.
