23rd Feb. 2013 - The Urban Trail Series race 1. Feb 2013

The first Race of the 2013 Urban trail series was held in Marley Park, Rathfarnham, Co. Dublin on Saturday 23rd Feb.

There was a large turn out of 900 for the 4 and 8KM races (actually 4.4 and 8.8KM due to park restrictions on certain parts of the route) which wound around the park following an interesting and varied route with little mud,and water jump section poped in for variety, taking in places most didn't know existed and general consensus was that it was an other very enjoyable race.

The over all winner was Kevin English from Donnore Harriers with a fast time of 32.19 just ahead of Romain Denis(33.04), and Richard McDonagh(29:32) The first woman was Barbra Clancy in a time of 38:36 ahead of second placed Roisin Harkin(38:3915) and Sarah Healy(38:46).
