Is this race going ahead this year? For some reason I have the idea in my head that it's cancelled for this year.

Its on the Athletics Ireland fixtures list for the 1st of December. No link on Donore Harriers website for entry yet though.

AFAIK, weather permitting, this race is definitely going ahead. Jingle bells gets the big numbers so shouldn't run into the problems that the summer race did.

Ah ok, that rings a bell alright (pun intended). I was thinking there was some race that had been cancelled and I think it was the Summer 5k.

That's the route they used in 2010 (when ice ruled out the older route). Pretty fast, I think, with a net downhill, but you'd want to have someone to hide behind if the wind on Chesterfield is against you...

It's actually the course which has been used for the last 2 years since the snow and ice of 2010 as RayCun correctly points out. Seems to have got favourable reviews.

Entries are open as of last week, link within the following page: http://www.donoreharriers.com/home_nav_9.html

Looks like a fast course.Hopefully it gets well suported by other clubs.

Not long to go before this one. I've signed up for this and will be hoping to go sub 20 for the first time. With a net downhill I'm hoping to crack it this time

I wonder will numbers be down on previous years with the availability of the 5k each weekend with the Parkrun in Malahide.

Doing this too, the first time I will have raced a 5k since Dunore 2011

I just also went mad on the facebook "invite" feature - should be on commission
