Hi All,

Here is a poster for a Running/Endurance workshop hosted by Ratoath AC in The Venue Theatre, Ratoath Community Centre, Main Street, Ratoath on Thursday 10th February from 7.30pm to 10pm with registration from 7.15.

It is of main interest to those who are interested in running 5kms, 10kms or marathons during 2011. The main contributors are Irish International 400/800m runner and the new PE teacher in Ratoath Community teacher David McCarthy and marathon and hill runner Ryan Montgomery who will give plenty of advice from experience (if you click on the image it will show you a bigger version which is easier to read).

Warterford Half Marathon

Our club had one runner, Eoin, in the Waterford Half Marathon (21.1km/13.1mi) on Jan 15th. The race was originally scheculed for December 18th, but had to be postponed due to ice and snow on the roads.
The weather for the race was awful. It rained the whole time and the first 11km had a strong headwind. Of course once the half way point was reached the wind was pushing you all the way home. The winner, Mareks Floroseks from West Waterford, came in at 1:12:28 and Eoin finished in 1:52:53 (chip timed).
It was a great course, mostly on the Waterford to Cork main road and the last 200m were on the all weather track in the Regional Sports Centre. The free post-race refreshments more than made up for the the terrible weather!
Congratulations to the 690 runners who completed the course. Official results here.
If you have any event reviews you want to see on this site, then please let us know.
