Georgina’s Xmas Pudding Run
Sat 17/12/2011

 The 4th annual Xmas Pudding run took place once again in the village of Carlingford, when a record number of ‘Pudding’ runners, 80 brave souls donned their festive Santa outfits and took to the hills overlooking the Lough. Considering the harsh seasonal weather conditions the runners had to contend with, it was great to see a fantastic field of runners take the starters orders, outside Dan’s Cafe, for a 9k run up through Maeve’s Gap and back to the finish in the village. 

The slippery road surface ensured the 10am start would be a cautious one. The ascent up through the gully to Maeve’s Gap was as tough as ever, but everyone just loving it !!. First through the Gap, taking the ‘King of the Hill’ Pud, was Ciaran Gormley, and Maurice Harte following closely. Meanwhile the rest of the field were ambling along, taking in the crystal clear views of the Lough, the Mourne’s and beyond from Goylin Pass. The ice made the conditions a tricky  descent down the side of Slieve Foy forest, with Maurice Harte making his move overtaking Ciaran Gormley who led from the start. These were closely followed by Johnny McCabe, Niall Halpin and Gary Shields well up with the front of the field. Mary Laverty was holding a steady gap on last year’s winner Jolene Mallon and Daisey Murray. Down the ‘Convent Lane’ most went, the lead man Maurice Harte taking a wrong turn for the finish. The rest of the field, finally hitting the tarmac at King John’s Castle for the run down to the finish line outside Dan’s. 

It was hot beverages and mince pies, provided by the proprietor, Dan the Man, who elected to conserve his energy this year, awaited all who finished. Georgina’s Christmas puddings, kindly sponsored by the Lady herself, were awarded to those lucky enough to receive one. Ciaran Gormley took line honours in a time of 46.36 followed by McCabe (46:42)  and Halpin (46:49.) Mary Laverty was first lady home in 50:37. Jolene Mallon (53:09) and Daisey Murray (56.57). The final proud finisher home was none other than John McKevittt (1:26:11) and Clodagh O’Gorman. Thanks to Dan and all his staff, Georgina for the lovely Pudds, and to all the participants for their support.

Proceeds from the race of €1,100 donated to Georgina on behalf of the local branch of St. Vincent De Paul. Thanks-BIG thanks. Have a wonderful Christmas and Season’s Greetings to all.

Xmas Pudding Run 18th Dec. 2010

The 3rd annual Xmas Pudding run took place once again in the village of Carlingford, when 55 brave souls donned their festive Santa outfits and took to the hills overlooking the Lough. Considering the harsh seasonal weather conditions the runners had to contend with, it was great to see a fantastic field of runners take the starters orders, outside Dan’s Cafe, for a 9k run up through Maeve’s Gap and back to the finish in the village.

The slippery road surface ensured the 10am start would be a cautious one. The ascent up through the snow covered gully to Maeve’s Gap was spectacular. First through the Gap, taking the ‘King of the Hill’ Pud, was Martin O’Hagan closely followed by Ciaran Gormley, and Mary Laverty, a snowballs throw away. Meanwhile the rest of the field were ambling along, taking in the crystal clear views of the far off snow covered hills of the Isle Of Man from Goylin Pass. The slippery snow slide down the side of Slieve Foy forest was a bit tricky to say the least, many resorting to the ‘bum slide’ technique, which proved safe and very successful. Down the ‘Convent Lane’ most went, Kevinnnn !!, finally hitting the tarmac at King John’s Castle for the run down to the finish line outside Dan’s.

It was hot beverages and mince pies, provided by the proprietor, that awaited all who finished. Georgina’s Christmas puddings, kindly sponsored by the Lady herself, were awarded to those lucky enough to receive one. Martin O’Hagan took line honours in a time of 49:16 and Mary Laverty was first lady home in 52: 09. The final proud finisher home was Nadia Williams (1:46:36) accompanied by Sandra O’Hagan, Celine McPhillips and Michael Wilson, taking many photos along the way !!! Thanks to Dan and all his staff, Georgina for the lovely Pudds, and to all the participants for their support. Proceeds from the race of €320 donated to the local branch of St. Vincent De Paul. Season’s Greetings to all.
