Upcoming Events This Week
Hill and Dales: Binnian
On Thursday we have the only hill top finish of the series. This race sees runners jostling for position on the starting lane, before sprinting to the foot of Binnian to tackle the brutal climb to the finish. This race is practically in the back garden of some of the Mourne Runner team, but it looks like an in form Newcastle AC team may take top honours in the men’s race whilst it looks like a battle between Wilson and O’Kane in the ladies. More details.
NIMRA championship Race 3: Annalong Horseshoe
On Saturday we have the classic long race around the Annalong Horseshoe. Jonny Steede and Diane Wilson are the in form runners to beat. We ran a recce on this course on a pea souper of a day last Sunday. I would thoroughly recommend knowing your compass bearings for the course and how to follow them; as we saw on Donard just carrying that compass ornament in your bum bag is not quite enough.
