So super delighted for all our members who did the race today from the first to the last ye all did the club proud. I apologise for anyone whose picture I missed but the conditions were tough for both runners and supporters. Details to follow later  but special congratulations to Donie O'Connell who equalled my own record of thirty two Ballycotton 10s today and also to our so called "Beginner's Group" who did us all proud with great runs from each and every one of ye. Please send me in PBs reports etc as always they are most welcome. Thanks Danny

Results are available on, and

As said on the blog last weekend Christopher McCarthy was running well and today he got a new PB and broke the seventy as predicted with a time 69 mins.  Morgan O'Regan, Shane Foley and Francis Maunsell had mighty runs - Morgan and Shane dipped under 62 mins and Francis was hot on their heels, with Shane and Francis getting PBs.  Ger McLean also got a PB in 63:27, and Don Ryan had a fine run comfortably breaking 65 mins.  Another PB from Louise Barry who broke the 75 mins, followed closely by Yvonne Fitzgerald, Marie Gillman and Eileen Leahy.  Anne-Marie Perry also had a great run and a PB.  Shevaun Hogan had a fine run - her first Ballycotton and only second 10-miler coming in around the 90 min mark.  Joan McCarthy had a very solid run as had Rosarii Griffin.  Brian Cott who has barely had time to train lately did a great time of 68 mins.. Aoife Fouhy had a spectacular run knocking five minutes off last years time and got a new PB by two minutes in 77.45. Trevor Condon also had a great run breaking the seventy Minute barrier with 69.06 and a PB to boot. Claire Parker and Karen Knowles both first timers had great runs and are looking forward to next year already.
