The weekend is here

Best of luck to anyone racing this weekend. Be sure to eat well the night before, drink plenty of water and get a good night's sleep.

Hopefully the weather will stay as warm as it has been over the last few days.

Let us know how you get on - just press 'comment' at the end of this post . We'd love to hear from you.

Racing in Raheny

Was just thinking there's just over 8 weeks to go until the Mini Marathon.

Taking part in a race around now will let you know how fit (or unfit) you are and how much work you have to do before June 1st to achieve your target. You'll also be able to look back after the mini marathon, compare your performance and see how how much fitter you've become over the 8 weeks.

If you're only starting off though and you think the 10k Bupa race this Sunday in the Phoenix Park might be a bit long, or if you want a short, fast race to get a bit of speed into your legs, you could do the BHAA race in St Anne's Park in Raheny instead.

It's on this Saturday April 4th. The women's race is 2 miles and starts at 11.00 am . The men's race is 4 miles and starts at 11.30. Check out the BHAA website for more details.

The BHAA races are really well organised by a great team of volunteers. Definitely good events to support.

Bupa Great Ireland Run - Sunday April 05th 2009

The Bupa Great Ireland Run is coming up next weekend and you can still enter until Thursday 5pm.

The race is a 10km run in the Phoenix Park on Sunday 05th April for runners of all abilities.
There's even a 2.5km junior race (8 - 15 year olds) that takes place prior to the main event (click here to check out the details).

It's a real family day out in a beautiful setting!

If you decide to take part and want to run for World Vision - just give us a call on 01 498 0800 and we'll get a fundraising pack sent out to you!
