We’ve all been there, the post Christmas turkey blues. That feeling that you’ve eaten just a little bit too much.
Well, one group of people decided to do something about it last Sunday in Glenbower Wood.
The Irish Mountain Running Association, along with Glenbower Wood & Lake hosted a few runs in the Woods to suit all ages.
There was a 500 metre run for the under 10s;
an 800 metre run for the 10 – 16 year olds,
and a 6 KM run for the adults.
There was a great turnout, with over 130 runners in total, with the proceeds going towards the ongoing maintenance of Glenbower Wood.
The runners all had a great time – the weather was excellent, and everyone was offered refreshments in O’Mahony’s Bar afterwards. The juniors had biscuits and juice, while the adults went for mince pies and mulled wine. A great day all round.
The Irish Mountain Running Association puts on a number of events during the year, you can find out more about them at www.imra.ie
