A huge crowd of 635 runners turned out for this race on Wed evening and we had a great crew there from the club. The race was won once again by Mark Hanrahan in a time of 15.05.
We had a fine crew of prize winners and PBs as well. Martha McNamara and Marie Gillman both got PBs and Marie who is running fantastic these days also got 1st O/50 Ladies prize as well. Colette Dalton and Eleanor Duggan both had great runs in the very hot conditions.
It was wonderful to see Team AA Archer consisting of Eugene McCarthy, Fergal O'Meara and Mick Murphy take their first prize as a team when they took 2nd Grade B Team prize. Well done lads may it be the first of many. Our first man home was John Dunphy in a time of 18.40 and take 2nd O/45 prize. Fergal O'Meara then took 3rd O/45 whilst John Cashman took 3rd O/50. Most others seemed to have good runs and it was great to see Kathleen O'Connell back in action after her injury. The only disappointment of the night was that they ran out of T shirts and food proving they are victim to their own success and popularity.
Remember all upcoming BHAA races will be at 7.30 from now on also those considering the Cork to Cobh it will be a little earlier this year on Sunday 28th Sept.
