Irelands Flattest Half Marathon & 5 Mile. Next race November 29th
Give yourself a gift when taking part in Clontarf this November.... Running is as much about the mind as it is the body. Have you ever gone for a run and found yourself in flow because you are not thinking about anything negative such as: 'I'm tired, I'm stressed, dammit - I left the immersion on etc'?. Or maybe you were thinking negatively and you got distracted by a positive thought and when you snapped out of that thought - you didn't feel that last km go by in comparison to the earlier km's. This happens to everyone running - consciously or subconsciously.
Well, to keep you on the positive track and flood your senses with POSITIVITY I invite you to take time to read about Outcomerun - Positivity gives you the edge. I've attached summaries from the chapters in the book. It won't take you too long to read them, get prepared and give yourself the gift of Positivity. Naturally, this is not just for the race - it is for life. Enjoy...Read the Intro first to get an understanding then Pillars 1-7 (sorry App is not available) *Pillars = banners will be spread over the 5 mile course*
Welcome to Joe Duffy BMW Clontarf half marathon and 5 mile ÁPRES MARATHON EDITION. Back with a bang after the success in 2013. We have gone with the same formula which attracted over 1,700 walkers, joggers and runners to this flat course in November. Cooler conditions and the reward of that 'almost famous' home made soup at the finish line make this a race worth considering. Perfect timing for those who have completed the Dublin Marathon. The training is done - so it could be a half marathon PB opportunity...
The entry fee is reduced to €26 for the half and €17 for the 5 mile. We strip down the price in November by eliminating tops and medals.
Run, Jog or Walk (we have a dedicated walking section). Annual SELL OUT event and places are limited. Enter now to avoid disappointment.
Go out, be active, and most of all enjoy!
