Dublin City Council /Business Houses Athletics Association

5 K race 17th July @ 7.30.p.m

This is really a downtown 5K road race. It’s unique in that it starts and finishes on the tartan track of the City Council’s excellent Irishtown Stadium and includes  3 laps of Ringsend Park. It is a fast flat course and has attractions for top end runners,  serious runners and fun runners. All grades and standards are welcome.   There are top class  dressing rooms and showers.

Afterwards there will be refreshments, a quiz with prizes of DCC service, and the presentation of race prizes. It is one of the few opportunities for experienced road runners to sample the spring of a tartan track in a spirit of sport and craic.

    The summer league is hotting up in every sense & moves to Ringsend Park on Wednesday 17th for the Dublin City Council 5k. This flat course starts & finishes on the Irishtown track which is also race HQ though most of the race is around Ringsend Park. It’s a combined 19.30 start with an abundance of spot prizes at the afters so don’t dash off. 306 people ran in 2012, Paul Fleming, Neil Callaghan & Stephen Moore were the top three men while Niamh Beirne, Emma Cooper & Maura Kearns were the first women over the line. Last year will be remembered for an incredible summer shower at the end of the race & in case it’s repeated, we have the RNLI on standby! If you have any specific questions either Colin O’Reilly at 086 3835019 or Jim Kelly 086 8150896 will give the answers.

    Wonderful evening in Irishtown/Ringsend Park in what is becoming our now near normal, balmy weather A big thanks to Jim, Colin, Bruce, Gerry, all at Dublin City Council & the BHAA for a really enjoyable race & afters. In a field of 183, Paul Fleming took the honours for the second successive year with Thomas Moran & Stephen Moore in second & third. Orna Dilworth was the lead woman followed by Maura Kearns & Orla Gormley. The very recently improved Irishtown track was probably never so crowded at the start line & this year, we did remember to run the required laps before heading into Ringsend Park for three loops. There were a few tricky corners that add to the challenge & got the heart pumping for the final 300+ metres back on the track, where we witnessed bottles of water downed in single gulps. Hope to see lots of you in the same location for the BHAA mile on Wednesday August 14th.
