bracken - i usually get down to waterworks myself, but gave victoria a go a few weeks back - i would say there isnt a lot between the two time wise, waterworks would be that bit hillier, wheras victoria is pretty much totally flat - but the last mile or so in victoria is a bit twisty and takes a few seconds off - my PB in Victoria is about 8seconds faster than at Waterworks, so not a lot between them for me! You'll enjoy either im sure, great bunch of people at both and well run week in week out.
Good luck for everyone tapering for dublin, not for me this year but im making the trip down to watch the marathon anyway, will feel a bit different being on the other side of the barrier, not running!
I entered Berlin 2015 ballot yesterday, anyone else in for it this year? I think the ballot stays open for a good few days, nowhere near as manic as London!
great running rodney, good to be back im sure amongst the races, what is the next one for you? Think i might have spotted you out in portglenone on the night of the 5k?
had a good week myself, PB for me in Laganside and Belfast half, and a solid run in Portglenone - 3 great races, Belfast Half course was much better than i was expecting, hopefully they keep it the same for next year!
sounds like a great idea and also a good way to see parts of the world!
Personally i have done Berlin (2013) and London (2014) myself, which I would wholeheartedly recommend -
Berlin for the time and organisation, great course and atmosphere, also recommend having a watch at the rollerskate marathon the day before! London for the sheer scale of it, probably not a PB event, even if the course is relatively flat - just one to enjoy in my opinion
I have also done Belfast 3 times now and wouldn't recommend it for your list...
trassey - i got 4.82 miles in total, still a tough tough run though!
races coming thick and fast now, is anyone else for the Jengana 10k this saturday in Antrim? Done the first one last year and its a pretty good course, got a roasting day last year and forecast has it looking similar for this saturday!
