It wasn’t a great day but rain, hail or snow we persevere.!! Our beginner 10k running group made a great effort last week running up to 7 mins x 3 non stop. This week everyone made an impressive effort to keep challenging their limits!! If you would like to join come along next Monday meeting at entrance to Killarney National Park across from cathedral. All welcome cost 5euro.
Killarney National Park is the backdrop of our weekly training programme which aims to prepare runners for the Mini Marathon in September. Our beginner 10km running group were out last Monday and are improving week on week. Last week we concentrated on 5 minute run times, this was no bother to our beginners who paced themselves very well. Next time we’re running for 7 minutes, walking for 3 minutes and repeating this three times for a total of 30 minutes training.
If you would like to join there is plenty of space, meet us at the National Park, across from the Cathedral, at 6.30pm every Monday for €5.
All levels are welcome, and remember… it’s never too late to start
Killarney Women’s Mini Marathon knows that you put in a lot effort in training and want to put in your best performance on the day. Sometimes it can be difficult to gauge your pace. Am I going too slow ? Did I start the race too quickly ? It is very easy to get caught up in the excitement of the event and burn out prematurely.
Don’t be worried. Like all large races we have a team of pacers running the race to help you acquire your desired time for the race. Just follow the guy holding the balloon with your time written on it.
Of course you don’t have to follow the pacer. You can also beat him to the finish line !
10KM RACE THROUGH THE STREETS OF KILLARNEY TOWN AND THE KILLARNEY NATIONAL PARK.
Killarney Women’s Mini Marathon is a 10k event through Killarney National Park. Walk. Run or Jog for charity. Some love to run just for the heck of it, some seek goals to accomplish, some walk to help their charity, some jog in memory of loved ones, some run to bathe in the beauty of Killarney National Park, some run to lose weight and gain a fitness routine for life, some run to be social and to train with friends. Regardless of the reason, get out there on the day and enjoy yourself!
