John Buckley 10 Mile
On an absolutely terrible morning for running the John Buckley 10 mile took place in Cork Sunday morning. With the first four miles on the usual Marina circuit runners had not only to contend with the rain but with flooded roads as well. We had a fine crew our with several doing their first 10 mile race. Happy to report that all did very well. Morgan O'Regan had a fantastic run of 61.52 and got himself a new PB. Declan Dorgan (does this man ever stop ?) had a great run with 65.19 ( his 3rd race in a week including a marathon) he was closely followed with a great run by Eugene McCarthy in 65.36. Aidan Heavin had another great run in 67.13 Then came Derek Aherne breaking the seventy minute barrier for the first time with 69.09 then Paul Geary came home in 71.35(also a PB) whilst Michael Geary shortly after in 71.45. Then came another brilliant run from Ger O'Regan doing his first 10 miler ever in a time of 74.45. Brian McCarthy solid as always did a fine 77.32. Paul Kearns kept under the eighty with 79.14.
Bernie Twomey ( does this woman ever rest?) was our first lady home in 75.26 followed with a fine run by first timer Paula O'Sullivan followed with a fine run by Amanda Stavrou - Cooney. Helen Sheehan completed the ladies crew also doing her first ten miler with a mighty run.
A total of four hundred and ninety three complete the race and great credit to them all for facing into such harsh conditions. Our men's team came fourth overall which is super as this race also served as the County Championship 10 Mile confined to AAI clubs.
RCI/St Lukes 5K
Some superb running tonight from our crew in this very well organised race. John Dunphy was our first man home in the superb time of 17.59 which earned him 1st O/45. So great to see John back running well again after his break. Next came Declan Dorgan fresh from a marathon last weekend with18.57 followed by Kris Dowdall with19.15.
Alan Morley finished in 23.29 also a superb run which gave him a new PB by around twenty seconds. Ian Kohler continued with his comeback to form with 26.55.
Our ladies also did great with Eileen Leahy bang on the 20.00 and Bernie Twomey 23.49.
Apologies if I missed anyone but the results did not list the clubs.
