Cork Marathon, Half Marathon and 10Km






Fan club for hire. Special rates for Midleton AC members (but very expensive).

A tough day at the office for some and more relished the heat. We saw some fine running out there in Cork today and more didn't get the results they deserved but that's marathon running for you. Tony Murray was our first runner home with a fine run especially considering he went into it with an injury which meant he had to be extra careful. 

Our first lady was Melanie Etienne making her marathon debut and she ran an excellent very well paced race and did herself proud.

In the half marathon Darren Ahern was once again our first runner home with a great run. In the 10km Paul Spiteri had another fine run and despite the heat managed to knock a few seconds off last years time. Louise Barry was our first lady home in the 10Km with another great run showing she is really returning to form. Whilst Ger O'Regan was 1st O/55 but unfortunately no prize. Ian Kohler 1st O/75 and Jim McMurtry 3rd O/75 On a point of interest Jim's lifetime PBs are better than anyone running in the club at the moment.

A special mention must go to our "Killeagh Girls" Mairead, Nessa and Laura who only started their C2 5K journey last January and completed the 10 Km today. Very proud of ye ladies.

Well done to all who ran and a big shout out for all those from the club who came up and supported and to those who stewarded also.

Big thanks also for the extra photos and apologies to anyone thats missing. Please send them on.
