Starting at Lee's Road Ennis.
The final race of this series was run last evening in Dangan. As with all of the other races we were very lucky with the weather and over 280 runners took part in the five kilometre run around the beautiful Dangan parkland track. We had our first celebrity runner on the evening, if you don't count Bernie Kelly that is, with the inclusion of Tommy Tiernan in the field. Hope you enjoyed the trot, Tommy.
I was looking forward to my favourite race of the year for quite
a while. Edinburgh is such a fantastic city you can't but enjoy
a trip there. The marathon expo was vastly improved this year,
even though it is still quite small and I still can't understand
how they can justify dragging us so far out of the city centre to
pick up our numbers.
As usual, I had no expectation or goals, just to get round in one
piece. Four marathons in 6 weeks should take its toll but having
run a really good 15 miler the weekend before I felt I was in

Due to popular demand a 10,000m track race has been scheduled for tomorrow evening, Saturday 26th May @ 7:30pm in Dangan, Galway. This race is be incorporated into the Galway Senior Track & Field Series Incorporating Galway Co. Championships. This is the only time slot available until next September as the track is to be ripped up and resurfaced late next week.
Another thoroughly enjoyable Thursday evening in Dangan and for the second time we got lucky with the weather. Really tight finishes in both 1500m races with exciting battles for honours down the home straight, while both 200m races saw battles all the way to the line.
The attached is my interpretation of the people who've run in at
least one of the four races to date.
At the moment, there are 176 people in with a chance of, or who
have already qualified, for a series T-shirt of the type above.
As before, queries of the back of twenty euro note to me at:
