Valentia Half Marathon

We had one runner here John Dunphy who did a great time of 1.29.32 over a very tough course.The first 5 km were very tough and up and down after that with the last 5Km fairly level.

Intermediate Cross Country
Michelle Wins Again

Michelle Kenny had another fantastic win today when she won the County Intermediate Ladies Championship adding another title to her growing list of titles.

Rod Scanlon was out again today too competing here in the Intermediate Cross Country where he finished a very credible 19th overall in a time of 31.25 for the 8Km course.A very tough and hilly course with 5 big loops. Well done Rod.

Cross Country News

The County novice B cross country championships take place on Sunday, 20 October in Conna in conjunction with the Masters.

This is for any athletes who are eligible for the county novice A and must not have won a medal in any cross country championship event in the current season at any level. Previous individual novice B medal winners are also excluded.

I am currently looking for athletes who would like to be entered in either of the above (over the age of 35 for the masters).

The masters races will start with the women at 12.00 pm, followed by the men shortly afterwards.  The novice B is at 2.00 pm.  Nobody seems to  be sure of the distances, but they are about 3000m and 6000m for women and men respectively in both masters and novice.

Please contact me if you are interested. Entries will be sent in on Monday.

Thank you. Sally
