Festive Fun Runs

My latest copy of Irish Runner is filled with races over Christmas. It seems you can't escape from them. My local club, Liffey Valley AC, are hosting one on New Years day. Hopefully come 1 o'clock on the 1st of January I'll be in a fit state to cover the 5km in a respectable time. Sure what better way is there to run off the chocolates (mmmm roses!) and turkey from the past week?

The race takes place in the Phoenix Park, at the Furze Road, on Friday the 1st of January at 1pm. The first 300 registered get a free T-shirt. More details on the race and online booking is available on
