Yesterday I launched the Running In Ireland Race Awards for 2015, a series of awards aimed at recognising the best running events during the year in Ireland. All nominees and winners are choosen by public vote, so these are the awards decided by runners (and I think maybe the only awards in the country?).
Well the response yesterday was incredible. 246 people submitted nominations, and I’ve lost count today! As you can imagine, there was a lot of variety in the nominations, but by far the hottest categories for far are the 10K of the year and the Half Marathon of the year.
There’s another 44 days of nominations left, so make sure that your favourite race is in with a shout of making the finals.
