Bere Island 5Km and 10kM
Several of our members went to Bere Island on Sat 12th to take part in what is becoming a very popular event on the Island. Some of them have family connections to the Island which makes it more interesting. The group that did the 5Km were Sarah Bermingham ,Helen Kenny, Paula O'Sullivan and Fiona Maguire. Whilst Martha and Michael McNamara did the 10Km doing fine times over this very uphill course. Martha did 51 min and Michael 54min. Well done all on what sounds a fantastic day out. Maybe we could think about it as a club day out for next year ?,
Graded Track and Field
Daniel Colbert again came 1st in the 400M in the Graded Track and Field League in the CIT Thur. evening whilst Aideen Hallihan came first in both the Shot and Discus.Full results and tables available here, https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B76_9hEHZLeUd01KZG1SWlhiVGVXd1dYQ0I5X0IxS1lyejBF/edit
Best Of Luck to everyone running this weekend especially those doing the Bere Island Runs on Saturday including Michael McNamara, Martha McNamara, Sarah Bermingham, Helen Kenny, Paula O'Sullivan and crew also to those doing the Fit Magazine 5Km and 10Km (vastly overpriced) races in the Marina on Sunday.
There was a swim/run (aquathlon) in Fermoy, with a 750m swim in the Blackwater followed by a 6 km run on Wed evening. Sally Drennan Ladies Captain was 2nd woman in a time of 40.52. Club members Susan Fitzgerald and Andre Brodkorb also took part.
This race took place on Thur night over the streets of Youghal with a three loop circuit. We as usual these days had a fine crew there all of whom had great runs. Paul Spiteri had a fantastic run (23.42) showing the results of his speed work taking off with 300 Mtrs to go and passing at least two or three in the process. He was followed by an equally good run by Eugene McCarthy in 23.46 who got 3rd O/40 prize. Next Came Don Ryan in 24,48 followed by close together Brian Cott and John Cashman 3rd O/50 then two seconds later came Mike Cremin and Dave Moloney also with fine runs. Neilus Aherne came home in 25.59 and got 2nd O/55. Kris Dowdall, Derek Ahern and Kevin Moran also had fine runs. Whilst Brendan Barry and Kevin Cooney finished close together in just over 30mins Its great to see Kevin Back after a long spell of injury. Brian Cott had a really great run getting a new PB by almost 30secs.
Our first lady home was Esther Murphy who took 3rd O/40 she was followed by Susan Fitzgerald with a great run especially considering she did the Aquatalon in Fermoy the previous night. Joy Sexton , Sinead Ivers and Amanda Stavrou also had good runs as has Emer O'Doherty who managed to break the 36 for the first time. Joan Mc Carthy (Ist O/55) and Fiona Maguire also had good runs. The race was very well organised with excellent prizes and lots of Spot Prizes.
