ONE thousand athletes are expected to take to the streets of Loughrea on Sunday for the Bupa Ireland Run in which Sonia O'SuIIivan is tipped to continue her recent run of fine form. Recognised in the 1970s as the Loughrea Road Race, the Bupa Ireland Run is now in its fourth year since its renaissance under a new name and after her win in the Great North Run last weekend, O'SuIIivan is tipped to make the running again in Loughrea. Frequented by international athletes such as Brendan Foster in the 1970s, the unique experience that is Loughrea has continued and in recent years has attracted such top athletes such as O'SuIIivan and European Champion Paula Radcliffe, and Sunday's event is expected to continue that fine tradition. The junior fun run starts at 12.30 on Sunday and the senior race will commence at 1pm at the Gort Road. The five-mile course is mainly flat and has been accurately measured and the race will be recorded for
