Historic Day For Midleton AC

Confirmation just confirmed from team leader Rod Scanlan that Midleton AC made history today in winning the mixed relay event in the Cork City Marathon. The team consisted of Rod Scanlan, Paul Spiteri, Emmet Ronan , Karen Grant and Mike Cremin. This is the first time since the Cork City Marathon restarted that we as a club have won a team prize in the marathon. I am so delighted guys and Karen ( it couldn't have been done without you) that the hard work is  starting to pay off.
Ye worked so well as a team out there today it just showed what the club is capable of when we work together.

                                                                  Marathon Monday saw some great running from our members with loads of PBs one or two disappointments but over all a fantastic day for the club.
                                    For some it was an ideal day for running but others felt the heat and humidity. We seemed to have lots of PBs including Margaret Jones  and Louise Barry  who both had brilliant runs  and whilst watching the race in the company of Lizzie Lee and the great Mary Sweeney plus others someone remarked when Sheila Buckley and Louise Barry passed that if  it was a race for smiles Midleton AC would have won hands down.

                                    On a more serious note it looks like our mixed relay team took first place led by Rod Scanlan with Emmet Ronan Paul Spiteri, Karen Grant and Mike Cremin. Andre Brodkorb's team also appeared to have a great run.

Having seen Rod have a brilliant first leg and Karen powering home behind the winner Pauline Curley  to pass on to Mike Cremin to finish. This if confirmed will be a first team win for the club and either way guys we are really  proud of  ye all with such fantastic running. To see so many Midleton AC vests out there today was a credit to all the hard work everyone had put in. Also Margaret Jones who looked like she was cruising came third in her category O/45.


                                            I have to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the club members and friends who came up to support the crew and especially to those who stewarded. It great to see a club united in helping each other to achieve one’s true potential and so many “running buddies” out there today and also to our pacer John Dunphy who did a gallant job by all accounts.
