Looks like it is going to be dryish tomorrow, though the run up Howth Head is going to be wet and mucky.
Me and Mick are meeting at Amphibian King in Bray @ 9.45am. That will give us plenty of time to cycle to registration which closes at 11.30am.
John, I don't seem to have the right phone number for you, mine is 086 381 7046.
Good luck to Mick Heatley tomorrow as he does a solo Big Brick, cycling from Tomriland to Ticknock Winter IMRA 10.2k Mountain run and cycling back to Tomriland.
That will be a workout and a half. Good Luck Mick.
Tough brick indeed. Nice spin down with steep hill up to Ticknock. The race had extreme underfoot conditionds with flooded forest trails followed by snow on top , more flooded rocky trails and packed snow/ice on the return downhill section. A good few runners fell .No one hurt too bad i hope.loraine Crean was there too enduring the harsh conditions. Anyway the cycle home was
laboured . Anyway the bricks are a good stamina building exercise. Next one 9 th feb Annacurragh. Recommended
