NSRT 13 Dec 2008
Our last races of 2008 will be the National School for Remedial Therapy cross-country races to be held at The Ward Cross Astro Park,North County Dublin on Saturday. The women’s race will be 4km and will start at 11.00 and the men’s race will be 6km and will start at 11.30. This is a completely new race from a new race promoter at a new venue so it should be very interesting. Click on "read more"… Directions: Take the N2 exit off the M50. Take the second exit off the carriageway – St. Margaret’s exit. Follow signs to St. Margaret’s. Come off the carriageway, take a right hand turn, go to end of road to a T-junction, turn left, follow road until you see the White House pub which is on the right hand side. Take the right turn after the White House. About 500m down that road on the right is the Indoor Astro Park and on the left is the New Park care centre. There are signposts from the carriageway to the the New Park care centre, i.e. beside the venue.
Bus Eireann bus 103 from Busaras.
The website information says that spectators should bring wellies.
I note that the flyer for this race describes it as "toughest cross-country race in Ireland". We’ll see. Come along for yourself and

I hope that there will be a large attendance to finish off the year on a high note.
Just as an aside, I note that the entry list for the famous Ballycotton 10 mile race on 8th March 2009 has closed. However,
entries will be accepted up to Tuesday 16th December 2008 from bona fide members of A.A.I. clubs so if you are interested and eligible, time is short. Entry forms can be downloaded from www.ballycottonrunning.com. Please don’t try to enter if you don’t
qualify as there is only a small group of people in Ballycotton who have to send the stuff back if it is not accepted. Incidentally, the race does not clash with any BHAA race that weekend.
I hope to see you on Saturday.
