Given the current weather conditions here Dermot Bates and Conor Kenny have started the plans for a Sportsworld trip out of snow infested Ireland. There has been a number of very successful club trips away over the years. The half marathon allow newer runners to get their first half marathon, more established runners to get Personal Bests or add to a growing list of places they have done half marathons in. The trips away also get club members to meet other people in the club they might not train with and you get to combine a holiday with exercise. So the contenders for the trip are –


The Hague March 14th


Lisbon March 21st


Berlin March 28th


Edinburgh April 18th


Sheffiield April 25th


Wexford May 2nd



There is a comment section below if you have done any of the races before and can comment on the type of course, likely weather conditions and if it was well organised. Generally the most popular race among the people who want to go is the one chosen.
