Raheny 5 mile Jan 27

A sign of a good race is that it's over 3 months away and still everyone in Dublin assumes they're going to do it and has started discussing it already

Looking forward to this race, really enjoyed it last year (despite the rain). It will be my first big race of 2013 and will be having a crack at sub 30 hopefully.

This race seems to clash with the Dungarvan 10 miler every year! Seems odd that for 2 such well established races, they don't try and avoid each other. Have never run Raheny, but Dungarvan is a super race. Decisions decisions.......

Do you know where I could find last year's results? They're not on the Raheny Shamrocks website.

In for this, first 5 miler, looking at just under 40 mins as a target based on MacMillan

I doubt they have ever had one before but its hugely popular, well organised and a great race. The John Treacy 10 is on the same day which takes some people away from it. The way numbers are rising at races though these days, you'ld never know about a limit.

If you want to do it, just sign up and good luck.

You can leave your stuff at the changing rooms at your own risk. If you drive you can park near the start/finish though.
