Up and Running

Festival of running in Kiskeam village

John Walshe

Gneeveguilla Athletic Club, on the Cork/Kerry border, will stage the annual Jack O'Keeffe Festival of Road Races on Easter Monday in Kiskeam village.

The main highlight will again be the four-mile race from Boherbue to Kiskeam at 2pm.

Last year, no doubt helped by a strong wind, two course records were set by Mark Hanrahan who recorded 18.38 and Laura Crowe who finished in 21.41.

D'ARCY PARK EVENT ON TARGET TO RAISE €500K

It looks almost certain that Ray D'Arcy of Today FM is on target to realise his dream of raising €500,000 for the Laura Lynn Foundation.

Close to 2,000 runners are expected to line up for tomorrow's Ray D'Arcy Half-Million Half-Marathon in Phoenix Park; an event organised by Athletics Ireland where entrants will have paid €250 each to enter. It should be a big day in the park on Good Friday.
