Thanks for these updates as always John, it's very much appreciated.

Alan O Shea was 3rd in the half and John Meade 4th.I think the 3rd place joined the pacers after the start of half went wrong

Caitriona said...

Eoin, was pacing the second half of the full marathon - 3hr pace with me and was not involved in the half marathon mix-up. The organizers gave him a half marathon number to wear hence the problem with the results. Ken.

Cork Half said...

I think there are also some errors in the category winners.

martin said...

I was supposed to be put in the over 50's category but was put in as senior male

Anonymous said...

Same thing happened to me Martin. I am over 50 and was put in as a senior! How could they get that wrong!

Worrying decline in quality at the top end of both the mens and women's marathon.

Unknown said...

Who do you contact if the race category it wrong? Is it the timing company?

Anonymous said...

I, too was categorised as 'senior': 'over 21'. I am well over 21 - I am 67! Can they not read figures on the registration form?

John Desmond said...

There are probably loads of small mistakes in the results that will need to be sorted out. The best thing to do is probably contact the chip timing company and they can update your details.

There are far too many mistakes, it is not how we operate in Ireland and we should not lower ourselves, and accept there low standards.

Derek Costello's pics show the chaos by the Sextant.

I think numbers for the full marathon will continue to drop as long as the half marathon is on as well.A lot of the people i trained with over the years use always do the full,now most of them or just doing the half or the relay and doing the Dublin full where there's less hassle of coming across half or relay runners

Donal said...

Thanks for the link John. Rest of the photos up now. All 2.6k of them... Pretty much everyone at Dunkettle and a good few coming around the last corner.

In reply to the previous post - for myself I found it hard to run Cork, recover fully, and then train properly for Dublin - I'm just not as hardy as a lot of ye I suppose. At this stage I'm looking marathons elsewhere for the Spring and Dublin in October. I won't be doing the Cork Half again, the timing of the full doesn't suit so I'll probably stick to the relay from now on. Pity Limerick nabbed the May weekend.

Anonymous said...

agree with the above point it takes a good 4 - 6 weeks to recover from a full marathon like Cork and then to train yourself for another full in october is counterproductive. maybe run the event 3 weeks after ballycotton in april sometime and just have a marathon and a relay. run a half marathon and a 10 k in september.

Is senior classed as 21-30? I'm 28 and thought I was put in the wrong category as I thought senior was over 65!

John Desmond said...

28 years old >> Up to age 34, you're classed as a senior. At 35 to 39, you're M35 or F35 Masters and then up in 5 year blocks.

Alun Griffiths said...

It isnt just a few mistakes in the age categories, in the half hardly anyone is showing as other than senior (I dont believe there were only 3 other over 55s in the 500 odd runners in front of me! we could all complain individually but something has obviously gone wrong in the system not just individual mistakes

Anonymous said...

Best suggestion yet. In the calendar these days it will inevitably clash with something. I think a full marathon and a 10k in April and the 1/2 and relay the June weekend. Or swap them vice versa.

MarLuc said...

Does anyone know two lovely ladies who took photos on Inchigaggin Lane?
And thanks John for a great job you always do here at this blog, it makes our post-event photo hunting so much easier :)

Re: Age categories. I'm in the O40 category and was showing up as Senior. I just contacted the timing company - there is a report error link on the bottom of each result page. They had it changed within a couple of hours. The same company was used for the Great Railway Run and I had to contact them after that as well about the same issue.

Re: Rescheduling the races. Take a leaf out of Dublin's book and run a race series leading up to the full - 5 mile, 10k, 10 mile, Half. Plenty of options for courses out the Marina/Blackrock walkway. You could even incorporate some existing BHAA races.

Just a note to say that I added links to loads more photos this morning. Check out Joe Murphy, Donal O'Chaoimh, Mike O'Grady and Gerard O'Sullivan for updated and new galleries.
