Routes for Saturday 9th November

If you’re not one of the crazies running around the park 63 times in preparation for the Sixmilebridge event, we have two routes for this Saturday.

The shorter is the “old dependable”, Dromin, which is around five miles. More details here.

For those who want to go a little further (especially if you’re planning to do the Clonakilty half marathon on 7th December) there’s a longer, eight mile version. This starts and finishes along the same route but, instead of turning left at the top of Dromin and running along the dog walk, takes the second left turn all the way down to the Clounmacon road, then left at the bottom all the way along to Bedford Cross and back into town. More details here.

Meet at 8am in the car park for the off. See you there.

Awards night nominations

Our post-Dublin Marathon awards night will take place on Saturday 2nd November from 9.30pm in Tankers Bar. It’s a bit of fun and an opportunity to meet up after the marathon and swap epic stories about cramps and side stitches.

So without further ado, here are the categories (fill in the form as you go to send in your nomination to us):

Hotel for Dublin marathon 2013

We have reserved fifty rooms at the Ballsbridge Hotel, Pembroke Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 for this year’s event.

The Ballsbridge is just up the road from the RDS, where the marathon expo is and where you have to pick up your race number the day before the marathon. Its a 20 minute walk to the start line on the morning of the race and we all walk up together for the pre-race briefing at Buswell’s Hotel.

Rooms are being held until 27th September so if anyone wants to book a room you must do so in the next four weeks.

Contact the hotel directly on 01 6379300 or by email: and quote “Kerry Crusaders”.
