MMRA Winter / Spring League in Munster - Jan to Apr 2018


The Munster Mountain Running Association (MMRA) will be hold a series of 10 trail races from January to April 2018 throughout the province. For anyone new to trail running, this is a good way to start as it's not as hard as the mountain races which are held later on in the year.

As the poster above shows, there are 10 races in the league and you only need to complete 4 to qualify for a league finisher's prize.

The first run is in Corrin Hill, Fermoy on Sun 14 January and there will be 9 others across the province between January and April 2018.

Please note, you must purchase annual IMRA membership online for €10 to take part in any of the MMRA events. Once this annual €10 fee is paid, all of the races in the series cost just €5 each.

You will not be able to run if you turn up at your first race without having purchased online registration.

Results & Photos of the Clonmel 4 mile race...Tues 26th Dec 2017



One of the biggest races in Munster on St.Stephen's Day was the Clonmel 4 mile in Tipperary with a total of 454 finishers. The first 47 runners were running under 6 min/mile pace.

Additional info from John Walshe of Ballycotton..."TWO COURSE RECORDS AT CLONMEL...

Lizzie Lee of Leevale improved Siobhan O’Doherty’s course record of 21:50 by 18 seconds to 21:32 at the MSD four-miler in Clonmel as O’Doherty took second place in a time of 22:17.

Sean Tobin of the host club knocked 20 seconds off of the previous men’s record when defeating fellow-internationals Brian Maher (KCH) and Kevin Maunsell (Clonmel).

Tobin, who ran a 3:57.00 mile last summer at the Cork City Sports and who was Ireland’s leading finisher in 15th place at the European cross-country two weeks ago, finished in a time of 18:34 with Maher (18:51) also inside the old record as Maunsell equalled the previous mark of 18:54."

Waterford...Dungarvan Winter League - Wed 8th Nov 2017 to 7th Feb 2018

24th  ANNUAL "FORDE'S DAYBREAK"WEST WATERFORD ATHLETIC CLUB WINTER LEAGUE.....DUNGARVAN, CO.WATERFORD


Dates....Wednesday 6:50pm
Nov 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th 2017
Dec 6th, 13th & 20th 2017
Jan 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st 2018
Feb 7th 2018


From West Waterford AC....This league sponsored by Kevin Ford of Forde's Daybreak on the Youghal road is the country’s original winter league and is now proudly in its 24th year and will be held over a period of 13 weeks this year with 7 nights of league running before Christmas and 6 nights after Christmas.

We will have the traditional Christmas break finishing on Wednesday night December 20th, our final league run in 2017, and the league will resume on Wednesday night January 3rd.

Entry will remain the same as previous years 2 Euro per night to members of the club and 3 Euro to non-members. As was the case last year there will be a once off payment on registration night of 5 Euro. This extra amount will be used to cover the cost of purchasing the numbers which are quite expensive but they are waterproof and have to be used each night for the duration of the league. This year for the first time also you can pay for the entire league with a once off payment and save yourself some money by doing so. For club members you can pay 30 euro (this includes the 5 euro once off number payment) and for non members you can pay a once off payment of 40 euro which also includes the 5 euro number payment charge.

The various division positions are made during the Christmas break and will be displayed weekly on our return night in January. 

Remember...
Rule number 1, no bib no run!
Rule number 2, no watches.
Rule number 3 no head phones or any music devices.

With the huge increases in numbers in our recent leagues at the Friary we are expecting big numbers this year for the winter league. We urge all those who did come along to the Friary not to stop running now after making such great strides at the leagues but to continue by taking part in the winter league, you will be glad you did.
