Trail Running Ireland Podcast

Welcome to episode 9 of Trail Running Ireland. The show is hosted by Eoin Flynn, UTMB Finish Line Race Announcer and 10 times Irish International Mountain Runner.  First up, Eoin chats to Richard Nunan, Secretary of the Irish Mountain Running Association. Richard is at the Trial Race for the World Mountain Running Championships Long Distance event. The race took place on a scorcher of a day at the Ballyhoura Peak Marathon in Limerick and it included a few surprise comeback performances. (15m00s) Our expert trail running coach Rene Borg is back this episode and takes a deep dive into one of the most important training sessions you can do as we prepare to get racing; the “long run”.

Podcast #33 Zak Hanna International Mountain Runner Age 23

The Inspirational Runner Podcast

Another great episode this week as we speak to Zak Hanna from Dromara Co.Down Newcastle AC. I have watched Zak scale the Mourne Mountains during the Hill & Dales taking many wins so its no surprise to me that he is becoming one of Ireland's best mountain runners. He started off his young career competing on horseback and he’s taken many podiums on both the road and xc bike, but his transition into mountain running has catapulted him into the International mountain scene taking 13th place in the recent Mountain Running World Cup and a recent 7th in Snowdon which was the best time taken by someone from Ireland since his coach Rich. Rodgers held the record in 1991. Zak has a lot to offer the mountain scene, a natural talent but he works hard for his success!
