Great Irish trail run

Tom BlackburnMay 24 2022, 1:05pmHi Lads, just wanted to put it out there that the Great Irish trail run on this June 19th is open to all runners, not just masters. We would appreciate as much support for this event as possible as it is a test event and we need numbers to make it work well. Anyone who runs will receive a top quality tech t-shirt and food after. So please sign up and support the event.

David BosonnetMay 26 2022, 7:19pmThere'll be a long and short course for the Great Irish Trail Run, following the race route of the World Masters - All details at

@Una - the course is a mixture of road, uneven track, forest trail/road and mountain - good trail/mountain running shoes with good grip is required. Running jacket is essential.
