There’s a particularly strange mix of races this weekend. Let us know what you’re doing or what we’ve missed. And enjoy your weekend’s running!
The Clare 10k is on in Ennis, taking in the town and part of the countryside.
Midsummer Mudness is on in Dundalk Co Louth. “Mudness”? Yes, mudness.
In Mayo, Saturday evening’s Ballindine 4 Miler is a little different. “You must guess your time in advance [at registration on the day], and the winner is the person who manages to guess the time most accurately.”
The Eireman X Triathlon and Duathlon is on in Courtown, Co Wexford.
Forget The Gym has marathon and half-marathon workshops on Marathon
The Hell of the West triathlon is on in Kilkee tomorrow morning. Is that the best name for a race in Ireland? Anyway, here’s what it looks like to do it – from a competitor’s point of view. Love it.
Enniscorthy’s Strawberry Half Marathon (plus 15k walk and 5 mile run) was our tip for Race of the Week in Monday’s paper.
In Kerry, there’s Tralee’s Summer Solstice 10k Fun Run on Sunday evening. Longford AC has a half-marathon going on.Meanwhile, The Galway Simon Women’s Mini Marathon is a 10k run/jog/walk. Last year, they warmed up like this. This is how we start every day in The Irish Times.
