Gerry BradyJul 13 2010, 10:51pmThe venue for the British and Irish race on September 19th has been finalised as Glendalough, County Wicklow.

The trial races to select the under 16 (born 1994-1995) and 18 (born 1992-1993) teams will be held on 7th August (it is the same race as the trial to select the junior teams for the World championships).

Plenty of volunteers and course marshalls will be needed, and of course supporters to cheer on the runners from all five countries. Hopefully we will have four strong teams representing Ireland against the best of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Aidan BligheJul 18 2010, 11:02pmHi Gerry,
I will bring my camera and take photos for this event as well as marshall if you want.
Gerry BradyAug 17 2010, 11:46pmThere is an easy training run this Saturday (21st) on the British and Irish junior international course. Meet at the upper lake car park in Glendalough at 11:00 ready to run. Bring a change of clothing and rain jacket. The training run is open to all juniors (not just team members).

The selected runners have been notified by email and the teams will be posted to the IMRA website after they confirm their availability.

Peter O'FarrellSep 19 2010, 7:43pmThe future is bright, very bright.
Some fantastic performances from all the juniors today - great running, well done and I fear for all us non-juniors once ye graduate to the senior ranks.
It's always inspiring to see pure 100% effort with no fear of blowing up - keep her lit!
Gerry BradySep 19 2010, 11:26pmDetailed race report on British and Irish now up. Congratulations to the runners, managers, volunteers and supporters who made it a day to remember.
Jason KehoeSep 20 2010, 11:57amMore photos of the U14, U16 and U18 turnaround points.

Well done to all the runners, some hard fought battles throughout the field.

Struggling to access the results for the juniors, it seems to put up the seniors results for all age categories.

Try these links:

The team results are in the race report for the under 18 races and also available as a News item on the home page. The photos are generally also separated into three separate events for under 14/16/18 as above.

Would everyone reading this (who is in myimra) please tag 10 photographs from the under 16 and 18 races :-)
mags greenanSep 20 2010, 11:03pmI have just been watching a feast of fantastic photos by John Shiels on the race yesterday( some are worthy of framing!). I can now appreciate the effort all the Irish team put into their running. Well done to all- we are very proud of you. Despite the weather I think we can all give ourselves a clap on the back that we put on a great show. It was a great team effort.
Keep a good look out for the events page for the All Ireland schools which will be coming up shortly. The original date of Oct 13th may change to a little later. I have one medium Irish track top and a green and a white Irish t-shirt which I will bring to the schools race.
Dermot MurphySep 21 2010, 8:31amWell done to all Irish juniors at the weekend - some great performances in there. Also well done to all the organisers and volunteers who helped out on the day - despite the rain, it was clearly a well organised event and a credit to you all!
