Training for women for the Dunmanway 10k 2010

The Dunmanway Family Resource Centre has received some funding from the Cork Sports Partnership to assist local women in preparing to train for the inaugural Dunmanway 10K race.  The Women in Sport – Let’s Do It Together! programme will fund a facilitator to meet with a group of women for 6 sessions to help in their preparation for the race.  Sessions will include advice on developing a training programme, warming up and setting personal targets.  It will also be a chance for women to meet up and continue to train together in the lead up to the event.  Numbers will be limited and sessions will begin in the last week of April.  Please contact Ita in the FRC on 023 8856818 or email ita@dunmanwayfrc.com to book your place by Tuesday 27th April.

 

Road Running Scene in Cork

For those of you who are new to the road running scene in Cork, the Dunmanway 10k 2010 is but one of a long list of road races that take place in Cork.  To say that road running has seen somewhat of a boom over the past number of years in Cork is an understatement.  As the year progresses to Spring and Summer, on practically any given weekend it is not unusual to find between 300 and 500 runners lining up for another road race - normally between 5 kilometres and 10 miles in length.  If there's not a race scheduled for a particular weekend, there will more than likely be a similar event in a neighbouring Munster county.  For those of you who have not run one of these "races" before, the word "race" can be off putting.  All abilities, from curious couch potato to seasoned athlete take part.  In the one event while the lead athletes race for top honours, for others, completing the particular distance is often the "race" in question.  The organising committee of the Dunmanway 10k 2010 challenge both the serious front runners to set the inaugural course record, those who have never ran a "race" before to complete the course and everyone in between to catch the person in front of them and stay ahead of the person behind them!
