Approx. 104 stewards are required to steward this event

 

NB: Each club will have a nominal maximum allocation of FOUR (4) stewards. 

Priority will be given to clubs who have assisted in stewarding either/both the Cork City Marathon (on behalf of Cork Athletics) and the Evening Echo Womens Mini-Marathon

 

In general, individual clubs will be assigned specific areas, including parking, Goodie Bag pickup and Route stewarding. Clubs will receive funding based on the number of stewards provided.

This event starts at midnight (12pm) on the night of Friday November 2nd / Saturday November 3rd, however stewards will be required from approx. 8pm (TBC). The duration for which stewards will be required will depend upon the areas assigned.

Due to the funding received by clubs assisting in this event, there is a high demand for stewarding places.

 

Stewards names MUST be with the Airport Authorities *BY* Wednesday October 17th

 

Stewards

Each steward will receive a 'Goody Bag' and a Technical Top. In addition, each club will receive a per-capita fee for each of the stewards provided, consequently clubs providing significant numbers of stewards can benefit significantly, by way of club funding.

Cork Athletics is required to submit the names of stewards by Wednesday October 17th, so please email (preferably) or phone This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 0877525862

Cork Athletics Registration Figures - September 30th 2018

Cork Athletics Registration Figures - September 30th 2018

 reg plate september 2018

 

September end-of-month registrations for Cork Athletics stand at 7,828. This is marginally down (69 registrations) on the September 2017 figure of 7,897.

Update (October 3rd): With the Cross-Country season starting in earnest next Sunday, there has been a surge in registrations, with a total of 8,028 registrations to date. Probably the biggest change, since September 30th, is that new club, Bridevale AC now have 80 registered members.

 

To date, fifty six of Cork's fifty seven registered clubs have registered athletes, leaving just one club yet to register a single athlete - and that club registered just a single athlete in 2017. 

These clubs, and their athletes, coaches, officials and other club members are NOT covered by Athletics Ireland insurance for any purpose whatsoever, leaving those athletes and clubs in a precarious position. In the situation where membership fees have been collected, but no Athletics Ireland registration paid, then that particular club, and its officers, leave themselves in a very precarious position, with the club, and the individual officers, personally covering any liability arising.

An additional consequence of failing to register a club and the minimum registration requirement of ten (10) registered members, is that permit applications from such clubs will, as has already happened this year, be declined, pending registration.

2018 Athletics Ireland Registrations are now Due

 

Clubs are reminded that 2018 registrations should be completed as soon as possible. There was a "grace period" of a few weeks, to allow sufficient time for re-registrations, whereby insurance cover continued, pending registration.  This "grace period" does NOT extend beyond the later end of January, and did NOT include competition.

 

Therefore any athlete, coach, official, or any member acting in any capacity, who remains unregistered is NOT covered by Athletics Irelands insurance, for ANY purpose whatsoever, including training and/or competition.

Clubs are urged to register their athletes without further delay.

 

 

Overall Registrations as at September 30th 2018

Leevale AC have moved ahead of Bandon AC at the head of the table, with Leevale exceeding the 600 mark. Both clubs lead the rest of the clubs, by a distance. Togher AC, Ballymore Cobh AC, Midleton AC and Youghal AC all now have over 300 registered members.

A total of fifteen (15) clubs have over 200 registrations, while a further eleven (11) clubs exceed 100 registered members, a total of 26 clubs. Almost 50% of registered clubs exceed 100 registered members.

National Marathon Championship Countdown 2018

Under Two Weeks to Athletics Ireland National Marathon Championship

Dublin

9am, Sunday October 28th 2018

The Athletics Ireland National Marathon Championship is incorporated in the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon, but *MUST* be entered separately. The Championship is open to all registered Athletics Ireland members.  The event, with a record 20,000 entry limit, sold out last June. Only elite entries have been accepted since. 

The final list of those declared in the Championship was published by Athletics Ireland on October 3rd, but, inevitably, for whatever reason, there are, and will be, lots of 'errros and omisions' - if anything, there appears to be more this year!  However, these can be corrected by contacting the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  It is also no harm at all in swinging by the Athletics Ireland desk when registering for the Marathon, to ensure that you are actually entered, and that you are in the correct category, etc. 

It should be noted that registrations for Championship finishers will be checked.

 

List of Individual Entrants in Athletics Ireland National Marathon Championship

 

Teams must be declared by Friday week, October 26th. Again, it is worth checking-in at the Athletics Ireland desk at the expo to ensure that all is in order. Normally changes and additions are allowed at the Athletics Ireland Expo Desk

The 2018 Dublin Marathon Route

This year, there have been more course changes in the initial stages, due to on-going works and testing of the new Luas line. You can get a rapid over view of the course from SSE Airtricity Dubllin Marathon's video of the course - it's worth looking at.

The Final Two Weeks - Preparation & Recovery

Rest and Recovery is a VITAL, but often overlooked, part of training.  There are two weeks to go. This is NOT a time to make up for lost work, whether as a result of social or domestic issues, injury, or whatever. This final phase is to ensure that, whatever your goal - whether to win the event, or just get around the course - you are in the best possible condition at the start line.  Get plenty of sleep, ensure hydration is up to scratch, no mad last minute long runs and, maybe, go for a sports massage to loosen out those knots & niggles. 


Cork Athletics Webmaster's Marathon Advice:


Marathon Advice - The last Two Weeks

 

Marathon Advice - On The Day

 

Marathon Advice - Afterwards - The Recovery Phase

 

The Last Two Weeks Before The Marathon:

 

Speedwork:

Cut down on intensity and/or volume.

 

Long Run & Speedwork

Long run two weeks before event: 15 max - EASY!!! pace.

DON'T be tempted to do any last minute long runs or strenuous speedwork in the last two weeks, but particularly in the final week. You CAN'T do too little....but you CAN do too much. The last two weeks are for tapering and building up glycogen stores in the body.

Do too much now and you'll blow your full potential!

Mon/Tues of last week before event: last speed work - light speed session, holding back or 2 miles med/hard but not all out.

Any heavy work in the last 10 days will do vou damage. Its hard to do too little but you can very easily do too much!!

 

Fluids

For the last 10 days(before the event) or so, get plenty of fluids on board. Drink WATER often, several times a day - more than normal. By Fri/Sat week, you need literally to have to get up during the night to get rid of excess.

Excuse the detail: your aim (no pun intended) is light-straw coloured urine at all times (this is the acid test) [not uric acid <grin>]. If you drink a lot in one go, it will become clear but will return to "normal" after some time (12-24 hours) Proper hydration will keep it clear all the time.  Binge drinking water/fluids may flush out the electrolytes from your system, making fatigue and cramp more likely.  Drink little and often - allow your system to find its natural equilibrium.

 

Drink:

Alcohol - will dehydrate you - go easy for the last 4 or 5 days, particularly last 2 days (too little
time to flush system & rehydrate fully).

Soft drinks - too much will deplete your potassium levels.

Apparently even a 2% deficit in hydration levels will have a HUGE detrimental effect on performance. Carbo Depletion/loading;

Depletion - cutting out/down on carbohydrate for 3-4 days - Probably not a good idea - tried it once. Current wisdom is against it.

 

CarboLoading

Definitely a good idea. Will be less effective if you don't hydrate AND get plenty of vitamin C on board. For the last 4 days or so get PLENTY of carbohydrates in - substitute carbos for protein.

 

Protein

Burns dirty. Eat very little protein in last 24 to 36 hours, same goes for high fibre foods, otherwise you will probably need to stop for a (p)it stop in the first 10 miles or so.

The first meeting of the Autumn sessions of the new Cork Youth Development Initiative (CYDI), along with the Winter Coaching Series, took place at CIT Track, on Saturday last, September 22nd 2018

While the morning was wet, the weather improved for the afternoon, and the athletes and coaches had a great session.
Session One saw the trials for 2003 to 2006 age group, for inclusion on CYDI Panel A. An enthusiastic group of athletes turned up and participated in these coaching sessions. The coaches put the athletes through their paces, and the following athletes were selected for inclusion on to the A panel.   


Cork  Athletics County Board would like to congratulate all the athletes selected, and hopes they will both enjoy and benefit from the programme ahead for 2018/2019.

There was no Long Jump coach available on the day for the CYDI group, but Cork County Board are delighted to welcome Shane Howard, Bandon AC, to our coaching panel.

For athletes who have expressed a preference for Long Jump, trials for this event will take place on the next CYDI training day, Saturday October 13th.

The numbers who attended the Winter Coaching Series, from 2:30pm to 4:00pm, were quite low, partly due to athletes who might otherwise have attended, having already attended the earlier CYDI session. Cork Athletics County Board would like to encourage more athletes to come along for this session. It is a great opportunity to get some technical coaching under your belt for upcoming indoor competition. Importantly, the lower numbers attending this session means that there is greater opportunity for each athlete, particularly in terms of individual attention and coaching.

Please note that atheletes who have not been selected for the CYDI A panel are invited to train at this time, 2:30pm to 4:00pm, and, if they demonstrate dedication and improvement, there will be opportunities to change to the CYDI A Panel, during the Coaching Series.

Weather Update Saturday 8am

There's little as unpredictable as the weather - what a difference 18 hours can make. Yesterday afternoon, it was looking a bit bleak for tomorrow's start. Now the forecast rain has disappeared, and the wind forecast was decreased significantly, so shouldn't (hopefully) be too bad. However with a northerly aspect to the wind, it'll be quite chilly, particularly on the way out, but it'll, pretty much, be behind you all the way back

Rain at 10am....Gone! Wind at 10am





Weather Outlook (Friday 3pm)
Twenty four hours ago, the weather outlook was simply dreadful. Thankfully, while it's still over 40 hours out, and really too early to be definitive, the weather situation appears to be improving all the time.

On Thursday evening, it was looking like there would be extremely heavy rain, combined with winds gusting 30kph.  At 3pm Friday, forecasts have the winds abating considerably, while the heavy rain should have passed through. If it is still raining at race start, that should clear within the hour. With winds from the north, it is likely to feel cold, particularly considering the warmer weather that we've been experiencing for the past few months.
