The weather conditions
were nice and even warm in the open sunshine around the various courses however there was a small issue was with the 10k…. sorry the 9.3k. !
This is the run I took part in so it was particularly disappointing for me to find they didn’t measure it and the entry fee was not reflected in the organisation. It appeared as though they didn’t even think about it, short!!! (Cardinal sin), no k markers, running over pedestrian footbridges, up steps across grass, up kerbs and over verges, water in plastic cups!! (A pet hate of mine.) This would have been a nightmare for marathon runners; this can easily be resolved for next year organisers! Use the roads & get a water sponsor to supply or buy with the sizeable entry fee small bottles as D.C.M and Connemara always do! Why reinvent the wheel?
In my opinion this showed it up to be solely a money making venture. It will be interesting to hear more feedback on this one.
“Great Limerick Run” Not so “Great” for runners!
Would I recommend it? NO! Would I go back? NO!
The Last word on the 10 k:
There once was a runner from Galway
Travelled to limerick for ten k
But when he had finished
His joy was diminished
Cos some prat frorgot to feckin measure it!
(Poetic licence!!!) A little short of a limerick
