Louise Shanahan, Leevale AC and Ireland

Womens 800m - DNA Indoor, Glasgow

Louise Shanahan, represented Ireland in the Women's 800m, at the six nation DNA Indoor, in Glasgow, on Saturday. Louise settled quickly into second place in a tactical race, behind Spaniard Romero, hitting the front entering the back straight on the final lap. Scotland's Selman came around Romero on the outside, chasing after Shanahan, who seemed to be holding her off, only for the Scot to find that little "extra" in the last 10m, to take maximum 12 points for Scotland with 2:04.73, while Louise (2:04.82) added 10 points to Ireland's tally, which led to ireland's third placing from the six nations involved: Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, Spain and Portugal

The offer is for 10 entries, e.g.. 4 marathon runners, 4 half marathon runners, and 2 relay teams.

Course Measurement

AIMS/World Athletics certification means that athletes achieving qualifying times for Marathon Majors, like Boston for example

 

Plant a tree instead of taking a t-shirt at Cork City Marathon

[Webmaster's comment: As a leading Running Personality said to me a while back: "How Many Technical Tops do you need?" ....So please have a think on whether you really need to add another top to your, possibly growing, collection. Why not follow Cork City Marathon's suggestion below]

This year for Cork City Marathon 2022 we want to create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly marathon. We are passionate about making the earth a priority

We are committed to reducing our waste, using green suppliers where possible and using environmentally friendly, compostable materials for our race. This year we came up with the initiative for participants to plant a tree instead of taking a t-shirt which will continue for the future

Making a t-shirt has a significant environmental impact. A single cotton t-shirt requires the same amount of water that a human drinks in 2.5 years, as well as over 2kg of eCO2. All of those precious resources will have been wasted if it is never worn. Technical t-shirts are synthetic clothes, they are made of materials like polyester, which generate tiny plastic fibres when washed, which eventually flow into rivers and the sea. Research suggests that synthetic fabrics are responsible for up to 35% of all the microplastics polluting the ocean

Planting a tree also has significant environmental benefits. It aids in the fight against climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, as well as providing a habitat for a variety of species and providing us with clean air to breathe

Therefore, we will plant a tree on behalf of every runner that decides not to take a t-shirt.
Our new partnership with An Dúlra to re-establish native woodlands in Ireland

For this initiative, we have partnered with An Dúlra to re-establish native woodlands in Ireland

From this year on, participants can choose to plant a tree instead of taking a t-shirt. Anybody who has registered already will have the option to change their t-shirt choice for a tree. We’ll be in touch with everybody who has registered already in the coming days

An Dúlra works with Irish Tree Planting organisations and The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine to ensure that any of their forests receive the correct license to establish native woodlands. They have long term business strategies such as networking with beekeepers to have hives within their forests or mixing native fruit trees within their forests to create organic food sources

One reason why we decided to partner with An Dúlra is that they purchase land in Ireland that is suitable for planting native trees and follow the correct licensing process to ensure that the trees are planted with oversight. It also means that any forests that they establish are legally required to remain as native woodland for centuries, ensuring that the trees will grow to a mature forest that will capture carbon and create a habitat with biodiversity in mind

Over the centuries, Ireland experienced near-total destruction of its forests mainly because of human activity and a deterioration of the climate: from an initial forest cover of around 80% to less than 1%. Ireland is the only country in Europe where such complete forest destruction took place

By runners supporting this initiative, An Dúlra will plant trees on Cork City Marathon’s behalf in Co. Roscommon and Co. Mayo to help to re-establish the land back into a sustainable forest. We are also working with the Cork City Council’s tree officer to support local initiatives in future years.
By sponsoring a tree, you will help to make this happen!
