DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL/BHAA RACES
Including final Lord Mayor’s 5 Alive Race Series
The Dublin City Council / BHAA Road Races this year in St Annes Park have new attractive features, which should appeal to many runners. Again they comprise a ladies 2 mile race at 11.00 am and 4 miles men’s race at 11.30 am. Ladies are welcome to run in the 4 mile race if they wish.
The race is part of the Lord Mayor’s 5 Alive Series and will have the Lord Mayor’s Team of volunteers running in their distinctive t-shirts. Also uniquely the Lord Mayor Naoise O Muire will compete in the race as he has done in all the race series. It is a testimony to his personal contribution to health and fitness.
Another exciting feature is that the two mile and four mile races are completely within the park. So it’s a parkland race of sorts, which includes new paths provided by the Council. This will be the inaugural race. The Bank of Ireland BHAA runners will hold a race amongst themselves in the 4 mile race and DCC gladly acknowledges their presence.
This is a fast flat course in a magnificent park with fabulous environment including the run down the long tree lined avenue. A treat for all grades.It will be interesting to see if last years winners Eoin Flynn and Kate O’Neill defend their trophies. As usual there will be the famous quiz with spot prizes , plenty of food and drink and the Lord Mayor Naoise O’Múirí will present the prizes.
The standard category of BHAA prizes will be presented. Enjoy another great race on a new course on a fast flat course in one of Dublin’s iconic parks.
Good Public Transport.
There is DART access via Killester Station.
Buses include the 29A, 31, 32 to Howth Road (St Brigids Church) and 130 to junction of Clontarf Road / Vernon Avenue.
The 10/15 minute walk would be a good warm-up!
