as I'm barred from the Belfast marathons facebook would someone be kind enough to ask...if the race ends up at the Mary Peters track is there any provision laid on to get back into town?
Mags is it still the old timer with no display?? That's fine with me.
Mark what did you say to get yourself barred from the Belfast Marathon facebook?
Mark - Someone asked them a cpl of days ago,here's the answer;
There will be free transport from the finish area at the Mary Peters Track back into the City Centre for all participants.
Hopefully they will have plenty of transport and not too much waiting around.

Dared to criticise the organisation...things like the 6 mile marker being put at the 9.2 mile mark...pointed it out and was told..I know I don't care its going up here!....just the simple things....but sure it's all in the past..
At the minute there's 10 of us from work interested in doing it.
5.5 miles last night boy was it warm.
Hadn't heard of this until I saw a poster yesterday - looks a good event with various runs from 5k to 27k from the Ecos Centre although it seems to overlap with parkrun at the same venue.
Should be a good day at Waterworks tomorrow.
Hi everyone, been a while since I posted/lurked, I see the forum is still going strong and plenty of good running by everyone.
I need a wee bit of advice and reckon this is the best place to get it!
I just did my first race in 2 and half years and with it came a nice groin injury. Ive now rested it for a couple of weeks with some improvement but no sign of running anytime soon. Can anyone recommend a good 'running' physio in the Down/Belfast areas? It has been a while since I visited any pysios but in the past it has always been someone with a big rep who treats high profile football or rugby teams. No doubt they know thier stuff, but I would prefer to visit someone with a good experience in treating runners and running related injuries.
PS, I could recommend a few but have you looked at http://www.nirunning.co.uk/physio? They really seem to know their stuff.
Mark, all the best for Rathlin. It's a cracker day out. I wish I could join you.
Well done Martin and Gregory at Downhill. I didn't see the bottom half of the course but every one said it was tough. Sorry Martin I called you Mark all day.
I did the Derry City Parkrun this morning and pleased to dip in under the 30 mins. It was 29:29 on my watch. I had forgot how tough 5K's are. ECOS next Sat and Laganside on Sunday.
Cheers Paul...It was a great day out...the boat wasn't as bad as made out.The scenery was just amazing..and hill after hill. Really good atmosphere with runners waving and urging others on...the garmin said it was a little short but who am I to question course measurers...no medal/token/trinket but think it was for charity so...there you go.
10 miles yesterday. It was tough to get the legs going again after Saturdays Parkrun. Very warm too but I shouldn't complain as it will probably change soon.
Good running at Rathlin Mark.
Really enjoyed Downhill on Saturday - I think it is my favourite race now! I could easily be converted to this trail running business.
I've never actually run it Paul but everyone was saying how tough it was. But when the weathers good it's a lovely place to be. I must get out and try it some time.
Well it is rather tough in places. I find the grass path along the top of the cliff and then the hill up to the house the hardest bit - especially on the second lap! I felt like I was nearly walking. The first and third mile are great fun, mostly downhill and technical down through the wood.
The mussendun run is brutal but it's my 2nd year doing it , I really enjoyed it and it gave my slackers training schedule the boot up the arse it deserved , I agree the hill at the side of the house is the worst bit , as always a well organised, friendly , well marshalled run by Springwell Runners and I'm sure I will be back next year My sons came 1st and 3rd in their age group for the mile run
Anyone doing Dessies 10K in Derry tonight?
Martin, I'm pretty sure I was talking to you at Downhill on Saturday. I was one of the two from County Antrim Harriers you were talking to on the start line. I was the one with white hair. My chum got the ladies verteran prize, much to her amusement. I'm still not over the trauma of that race, It was horrific!!... Although I'll probably do it next year. Credit to ya though, you didn't lie to us about the route. A really lovely venue, brilliantly organised, great marshalling and fab tea and buns afterwards. Just a shame about the 5 miles of misery in the middle, lol. JP you're sooo right about the climb back up to the house. I was scundered by how little my feet were actually moving. Although it doesn't look like it from your time. Gregory... you didn't happen to have the Grinder printer on the back of your vest??
Then Sundays morning run was an 18 , so I am feeling pretty bangled now. An easy week this week, I think.
So many race to choose from this weather. Tooo much choice. I'll be like a caged rat come the winter when I can't get my weekly fix of racing.
Dam busters this Saturday. Who else is doing it. Any advice for shoes for it? Trail or regular trainers?
TLH, You were indeed talking to me , nice to meet you, I will say hello the next time our paths cross, well done to your friend she did exceptionally well on a gruelling course! You also cleared up another issue for me Gregorys "Grinder" shirt , Gregory I apologise in advance for not saying hello Peter where you and a westie marshalling at the temple ?
Next run for me is the Waterside Half
Hi TLH I was the marshal at the end of the glen just before you went down the short steep hill in toward the finish. One runner ask me was there a one lap option.
Martin, Peter and the pup were marshalling not sure at which point.
Next up for me is the ECOS parkrun on Saturday and Laganside on Sunday.
Ahhhh, it's like a Columbo mystery being revealed. I remember you well kenneth. Although I was definitely more pleased to see you the second time round, lol. Thank you fire marshaling, it was really well run event. And I doubt I looked to greatful at the time.
