Mark’s Blog (John Buckley Sports 5k)

The John Buckley Sports 5k in association with the BHAA will be held this Tuesday 31st May 2016.

The course has changed slightly this year but should still be a quick affair.

The race starts at the usual point on Centre Park Road and takes the first left after about half a mile at the roundabout for Monaghan Road. At the end of this road you take a left at the T junction onto Centre Park Road. This loop is done once more, then instead of taking a right at T junction onto Centre Park Road towards the Marina you take a left and straight down past the start line to the finish.

Race registration is at the Lee Rowing club building at the start of the Marina and there will be refreshments and prize presentation there too after the race. The race starts at 8pm sharp. You can also register online at

I am just off the ‘Night of 10000m PB’s’ track race in the UK where I didn’t quite PB but it has helped me find my track legs again since the marathon and I plan to represent the great John Buckley Sports tomorrow night.
