South Dublin County Council Race Preview 2014

South Dublin County Council Race Preview 2014

Happy New Year to all BHAA runners.  I hope that you are fit and well.  Just to check your current fitness, we have a nice opportunity coming up on Saturday 4th January 2014.

This will be the South Dublin County Council cross-country races at Tymon Park, Wellington Lane, Templeogue.  This is close to exit 11 off the M50 (Tallaght exit) heading for Templeogue.  Just down from the Spawell Golf Centre.

The women’s race is two miles and starts at 12 noon.  The men’s race is four miles and starts at 12.30pm.  Registration and changing facilities at St Jude’s GAA club.  Get there early.

The annual subscription for 2014 (still only €15) is now due.  This needs to be paid before the end of January 2014 if you wish to avail of the members’ race entry fee of €10.  We would prefer if new members could sign up and members renew their memberships online at https://bhaa.ie/join as this would minimise delays at race registration.  In addition, online registration gives you the opportunity to update your personal details, company name etc.  Most importantly, it eliminates the need for hard-pressed BHAA volunteers to read and type in other people’s handwriting.

Separately, if you are not signing up as a member, you can enter Saturday’s race online in advance for €15 at https://bhaa.ie/events/south-dublin-county-council-2014/.  You can also enter online if you are a member (and are logged in) for the usual €10.

The next races after this are on Saturday 18th January 2014 (Eircom cross-country races at Cherryfield Park, Firhouse) and Saturday 1st February 2014 (North County Farmers cross-country races at Balheary Park, Swords).  Put them all in your diary.

I hope to see you at Tymon Park on Saturday.
