WEEKEND RUNAROUND

Ballymacarbry 5 Mile


(Thanks to Regina for the photo)

Big congrats to Michael Abernethy who ran the Ballymacarbry 5mile on Friday evening where he got a PB with a time of 31.35. This fine running on this course which is "out and back" but a turn off on the way back brings you uphill on some rough terrain (not road). The race is part of the West Waterford Series.

 There were almost three hundred runners in Ovens on Thursday evening. From what I saw we had one runner Sheila Buckley who came 3rd O/35.

UPCOMING RACES





Keep this one in mind Ladies 16th Sept (pre entry required). It would be great to see a mass of Midleton AC colours out there. We always get a nice crew but could always do with many more. Its for a great cause and deserves support.

CARRIGTWOHILL 5KM



This could be the town they named a race after as the look on most of the faces tell the tale of two hills. We had a great crowd there from the club both running and supporting. Ranging from our oldest to our youngest member and lots more in between. We came away with three prize winners Sally Drennan 2nd O/50, Mark Walsh 2nd O/55 and once again Ian Kohler 1st O/70 whilst several others were very well placed.









































 

Definitely one of the best races around
and well worth supporting as they do us.Danny
