The next race on the BHAA calendar is the Stryker 4 mile race on Wednesday April 22nd at 7.30pm. This is the first of the evening races but note the start time is still a bit earlier than the traditional mid-week races. Registration opens at 6pm at the Carrigtwohill Community Hall.
The results of the Carmel Lynch Memorial 10k organised by UCC are now online in Excel/PDF. Well done to all who braved the early wet conditions who were rewarded with a dry but windy race.
If you’re curious as to who Carmel Lynch was, I came across a lovely write up on SportsWomen.ie.

The results of the Janssen 6k from this morning are now available in Excel / PDF. We had a very close first and second but unfortunately neither were BHAA registered so the honours of first male goes to Sean McGrath. Anna Doris was the first lady over the line. Well done to all who took part on a fine brisk morning.
There are sets of photos already up on Flickr by Doug Minihane, Kieran Minihane and Graham Nudds. Mick Dooley has his set of photos up on our Facebook page.

See you at the next race on March 1st!
The next race on the BHAA calendar is the Janssen 6k in Little Island on Sunday February 8 at 11am. Like the previous race, we are changing the route of this to avoid crossing busy junctions. See route below.
Registration takes place from 9.30am at the Little Island Sports Hall. All proceeds from this go to Marymount Hospice.
The results of the FMC 4 mile race in Little Island are now available in Excel/PDF. This had been changed to a 6k during the week to take in a route along the Eastgate business park but due to icy roads it was put back to the original 4 mile route. Start and finish set ups had to be adjusted which caused the delay in the start. Apologies to everybody for that delay in such cold conditions and especially those who couldn’t stick around to make the race. Safety for everybody has to be our main priority.

Cork BHAA FMC 2015 – Kieran Minihane
The next race on the Cork BHAA calendar is the FMC 6k race on Sunday January 18 at 11am. This is usually a 4 mile race but in the interest of safety we have adjusted the route of the race. The start and finish will be in approximately the same locations but the race will now go left into Eastgate Business Park, do a loop and come back out to the main road.
This is always a busy race so please come early to registration which opens at 9.30am at the Little Island Sports Hall. The start is still roughly a mile from registration.
The results of the ESB X-Country from this morning are now online in Excel/PDF. Well done to all who turned out on a lovely brisk morning.
A belated happy birthday to Kevin Cummins who turned 70 over the break!
