The sound of rubber on a wet smooth surface was all that broke the holiday silent. Everyone was adjusting, gauging and fine tuning their pace. A sharp left and a daunting breath taking climb and we broke free onto the Monkstown road.

- Gr8 8k Road Race Results - August 2018
We admired the wealthy houses and knew what lay ahead. The course got tougher and we climbed solidly until almost 6K.
The Gardai were amazing, not one car in sight. Up down, left right, we twisted through this beautiful place and wondered at the manicured lawns rising over the sea. On a long slow tough drag who gave us the biggest cheer along with the biggest smile?
Cahir Half Marathon - great turnout in hot conditions
It was heartening and we lifted our legs just that bit higher. Through Glasthule and back to where we started but 1K still to go. It was hanging in there time with a few tests yet. A long straight and the finish line insight. Like always, we found the last bit of energy to sprint for home.
We collected our medals and gathered on the pier. It was time for breakfast and 8 of us recounted epic, exaggerated tales of almost brilliant runs. Forgive me if I leave anyone out I was locked in a deadly battle to the end with Ray Carpenter — he won, I was deadly. Not for Paul to hang around in the limelight — no. Paul was back out on the course encouraging us, that lifted us again.
Thanks too to our great friend Ellen Lavin.

Thanks to Jimmy McCormack for the use of his photos for Facebook. All kids enjoyed the experience of running down the main street with great support from all.
The main race kicked off at 11am this year and the earlier start did not deter over runners turning up to try and win this prestigious race. It was great to see each of or our neighbouring clubs well represented on the day.
