There are no upcoming dates for this event.
Looking forward to this . A 5 mile XC can be hard on the Legs, but I’m giving myself sunday off!!
We had a great turnout at the South Dublin County Council race on 5 January 2013 and it went very well. Next, we have the Eircom cross-country on Saturday next 19 January 2013 at Cherryfield Park, Firhouse, Co. Dublin. Registration and changing facilities at Ballyboden St. Enda’s GAA Club across the road from the park, opening at 10.00am.
The women’s race is 2 miles and starts at 11.30am and the men’s race is 5 miles and starts at 12.00 noon.
Buses passing close to the venue are the 49, 49B, 15, 15B and the 75.
Note that there are usually some good spot prizes after the races so even if you don’t expect to be in the prizes for your speed and endurance, you will still have a chance of a nice prize just for being present. Last year there were some mobile phones. (Note that you have to be there if your name is called.)
One final point about the start. One of our members was spiked last time so please be careful, particularly at the start. There will be plenty of time to catch up.
This is always a great race & five miles cross country is somewhat character building & will stand to you for the rest of the year. Last year Jean Wilson triumphed in the womens race in a field of 75 while Mark Hoey was the pick of the 278 runners in the mens.
Are the race standards available on this website?

I’ve posted the PDF results for the individual and teams. The proper results table will be updated in a day or two. In terms of the website getting the team results table back is the next thing, then leagues and then the standard table. Great race organised by the Eircom crew today.
A huge well done to Kevin Donoughue, the great crew from Eircom & the BHAA for a spectacular cross country race in the not as mucky as expected, Cherryfield Park. 5 miles is a tough cross country challenge & the brack mountain was a welcome sight at the afters. We’ll all cross Swords again in a fortnight!
Today was my first ever bhaa race,how many races do I have to run before I get a standard?
Any chance of some gluten free brack?:-)
You will have a standard at the next race, on the gluten free brack, perhaps some of the race promoters reading your comment might be able to sort something out for you. Welcome to the BHAA, enjoy.
Well done to Eircom a great job done in trying conditions, well done to Paul,Brendan and the rest of the bhaa crew on the speedy results and our photographers. Next stop Swords.

Anyone pick up a red bag with spikes from the dressing room opposite the showers yesterday. Walked off without them & rang Ballyboden just there & they’re not in dressing at the moment. It’s one of those red drawstring fabric bags with Spar on it.
Thanks… the wonders of technology that is the BHAA website found them… Next time I’ll lose themin one of the muddy parts of the course and see whether they can be found.
For some reason, I cannot see the results. If possible, can you upload the PDF version. Not sure what changed. I could see them on Saturday evening
try hitting F5 on the keyboard. I can see the PDf files

Congrats to the Eircom crew on a great race and very well marked out. Big well done and clever thinking to Derek (Eircom) who moved the course markers out from the tight bend out the back when it was getting dangerously slippy during the mens race. Well done also to the BHAA committee members who work behind the scenes on finish line/results etc. Loved the Elvery voucher prizes – thanks to Eircom for them, and a final big thank you to our photographers. Watching them in slide shows gives a real feel for the actual races, keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.
