The Captain's Run
As members will be aware we organise a run for club members and guests for a charity every year. This year the run is in aid of the very worthy cause "Culann Wants To Walk" full information can be seen athttp://culannwantstowalk.com/
As in recent years the run will take place from Barryscourt Castle at 10am on Christmas Eve. The course is 5Km with the option of 3Km if desired. We encourage as many as possible members and guests to run and DONATE to this worthy cause. If you cannot run we ask you to come and help steward etc ( or ask a friend or family member ). This is very much a fun occasion and tea etc will be available after from Edmond's Magic Bus.
The race of the day had to be the Newmarket 5km where there was a really top class field of the cream of Irish athletes. We had at least two athletes there both of whom performed remarkably well. Anna Doris had a great run and finished sixth lady overall and amongst the prize winners with several international athletes ahead of her.
The man who had the most to prove especially with several of his family members running was Mike Cremin . He did just that in getting himself the PB he promised me this morning and knocked fifteen seconds off his previous one which is a very nice way to finish the year. Well done Mike and Anna class running both of ye.
Sunday morning saw a great crowd once again in Cloyne. Despite the cold and the heavy showers the race itself went off without any rain. Once again Eileen Leahy was the first lady home having a fine run despite having just completed her final exams and to mark the occasion we saw the debut of her young sister Mary who also had a fine run. Joan Hough had her usual very powerful run and Anne Marie Perry had a great run despite having had another great run in Shanagarry yesterday. Claire Parker helped along by running buddy Edwin Cashman (who also ran yesterday) got herself a Xmas present of a new PB. Well done Claire. Gillian Bransfield had another great run holding off the opposition in the final hundred meters.
Brian Harty was our first man home in a fine time especially considering he also raced yesterday. Gerard McLean had another of his very strong runs as did Fionan O’hAodain who got himself a PB as well. It was great to see so many Midleton AC members out there supporting a local and very worthy well organised event.
The girls are feeling the cold.
