Let me know if you boys are planning a recce of the Christmas Cracker in December.  I signed up in a moment of madness after swearing blind I'd never do it again!  No way could it be as brutal as last year, could it???

Only on sale since November 1st there is 16000 entries sold for Dublin Marathon 2019, they reckon it will be sold out by Christmas as there is only 4000 places  left
It took until May to be sold out for 2018.
First year I did it in 2014 I didn't sign up until 3 months before it and it didn't sell out until early September.
Crazy how popular it has become.

I hear rumours this years is solely confined to the park due to the costs required for running on public roads. Missed last years and will miss this years due to wedding anniversary, pity as would do a lot of my running in the park

No.1 I will have a word with the Prophet to see what  the recee arrangements are and let you know. Will probably be doing sweeper again no training required just warm clothes and a thick skin if last year was anything to go by. There was no running involved only walking as the tailenders  were close to 3 hours and that was after rerouting them. Are you doing with Rinty?

Yes rumours are correct mostly in the Park but still could be brutal

Sold out!

Thanks Walt.  I'm supposed to be doing it with GK, Rinty is running with Scully (if he returns from Oz)!

Hurt the calf yesterday so I'll just have to play it by ear.  Haven't made to the start line of any race I've entered this year, I think my body is trying to tell me something.  >:(

New legislation and costs for racing on the road are ridiculous.  Lots of decent races fell by the wayside this year.  Don't know how councils square it with their Health & Well Being policies.

MR2 the quirky concept of the Cracker is that the route changes every year along with being a pairs race and everyone wants to know the route to recce to get a guide time. Are you thinking of entering as the quota of 700 pairs has been reached

Thats a shame, thats the type of thing that I'm looking into now, getting stale with going to the gym and while I'm still involved with GAA though no playing role, I havent the time for triathlon training anymore but running is handier!

Keep an eye out anyhow Milltown not uncommon for a few places to come up closer to the event due to few teams dropping out.

There are not many things better than getting your first pair of cross-country spikes.

Leave the XC spikes at home for this one. Trail/Fell shoes more suited
