2019 Winter League 2 Mile – Starts NEXT Tuesday – October 22nd from 7PM

The Club’s Annual time-handicapped 2 Mile League begins Tuesday October 22nd on the track and continues every Tuesday (EXCEPT Tuesday 29th) for six weeks during the 7PM to 8PM slot.


W1: Oct 22nd

Oct 29th (no race due to Dublin Marathon)

W2: November 5th

W3: November 12th

W4: November 19th

W5: November 26th

W6: December 3rd (Final)

This is a very popular event and great fun !

We encourage *everyone* to take part: Seniors and Fit4Life.

The first night will be a mass start and will determine your position for the following week so we expect everyone to give it their best and leave nothing on the track !

From week 2 on, each runner is given a staggered start time which means that the speedsters might start 12 or more minutes behind the first starter with the objective that all runners will be finishing the 8 laps at around the same time and therefore the chances of winning are wide open – anyone can win !

Come along to the first night, get yourself a 2 mile time for the season and you’ll be amazed at your improvement over the six weeks.

Each participant scores 2 points on the first night, then on subsequent nights there are points awarded to the first 6 across the finish line, with first getting most points, etc., etc.

Your top 4 results of the 6 races are combined for an overall score.

The chances for any participant to win this league are wide open…

There will be a number of prizes up for grabs with a celebratory cuppa and awards handed out on the night of the last race on December 3rd.

Cost is €5 for the league (great value for 6 races).

Get to the track by 7 p.m. for your warm up and Chief Organiser Liam Murtagh (thanks Liam and team!) will issue instructions for a 7.15 start.

Best of luck to all !
