Blarney 5Km on Sat 29th Nov.

Attention members running Munster masters cross country

The senior races of the Munster masters cross country on Sunday in Watergrasshill will start at approximately 1.00 pm - 1.30 (women first).  The official word is that it would be impossible to give an exact time!  I would advise the women runners to be there by 12.00 pm and the men not too much after that.
Don't forget you must wear your club singlet and it is a good idea to bring a couple of pins for the race numbers.
See you there.

Great Running by Eileen Leahy

Eileen Leahy is having a fantastic season with the club. This young woman only started competitive running when she joined the club six months ago. Yesterday she was the fourth scorer on the Jnr  Cork Team in the Glohealth Inter Counties Cross Country Championships in Dundalk when she helped them take the Silver Medal position. This is a great result and as a club we are delighted with Eileen's success.

The Reindeer Run

There was a great atmosphere at this fun run in Fota Sunday morning with the main emphasis being on the fun. We had several athletes there including The Fantastic Four from the beginners group who this time became 4 + 1 being joined by Flor Horan. Louise Barry made her come back after her marathon success and as can be seen from the photos she has two new coaches.
Overall it was a beautiful morning for running and athletes of all levels helped this very worthy cause.

It seems like a quiet weekend on the racing front but lots of hard training seems scheduled in the woods and on the roads. I know we have some people doing the Reindeer Run in Fota on Sunday and we wish them the very best.
