Relay for Life 2022


Midleton AC members, families and friends,

After a hiatus of two years Midleton AC is delighted to once again take part in the Relay for Life for the Irish Cancer Society 2022. This event will take place in the CBS secondary field, on  Saturday the 27th of August and finish on Sunday the 28th at 3pm. This 24 hour fun and festival event brings the community together to celebrate cancer survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to cancer. Midleton AC team will maintain a 24 hour relay around the track while hosting a fundraising event in the tent, and as darkness falls candles will be placed in candle bags which will be sold by the team captains at training in the coming weeks costing €5.
Please support this very worthy cause. 

Many thanks,
Louise and Yvonne.

WEEKEND RUNAROUND

Tralee Wetlands Half Marathon




Super well done to our Captain Declan Dorgan who finished 3rd today in the Tralee Wetlands Half Marathon in the fine time of 1.27.18. He is pictured here with his biggest supporter Aoibhin.


Run Killarney 


Margaret Jones and Aiden Browne heading towards the finish line in Killarney



 Two of our ladies ran "Run Killarney" Half Marathon this morning after a very early start to get there. Margaret finished 5th in her category. Here they are above modelling their new Run Killarney tops. Well done ladies.
Also well done to Christopher McCarthy, Leonard Healy and Aidan Browne who ran the Half also.

Galtee Runners 8Km

In Mitchelstown on Friday evening for an 8km race Amanda Cooney finished 2nd O/60.

Henry Milward Reports.

I went down to Tramore Valley Park this morning for this race, District and Leisure 5k I think it was called, only 56 people there I think, friendly little race though. I ran 17.58, nice honest course which is the same as the parkrun course which has restarted there (ridiculous I suppose to pay money for a race the day after a free Parkrun but nice to get a race in sometimes).

Midleton AC WIN 1st TEAM

Tamzin Muldowney 3rd Lady and John Hennessy 3rd Male 



Our winning team minus Tamzin Muldowney


Once again we saw some great running from our members tonight in Ballynoe at St Catherines AC 5Km road race. It was great to see Tamzin Muldowney finishing as 3rd Lady hopefully on her way back to full racing fitness whilst the ever consistent John Hennessy was 3rd Male finisher. Eileen Leahy had a fine run also finishing 4th Lady.It was great also to see John Aherne who is turning into a very fine runner take 2nd O/45. His first ever prize for running.

But not only did john get his first ever prize he got his second as well when he helped the Midleton AC TEAM take FIRST PRIZE in the mixed team category.

The team consisted of John Hennessy, Christopher McCarthy, John Aherne and Tamzin Muldowney.

It was great also to see so many of our recent C2 5K group all running very well. Well done to all who ran and big thanks to St Catherines AC who organised such an excellent event.
































Kinsale 5 Mile

We had a nice crew at the Kinsale 5 also and some very good runs were had. Big thanks to Margaret Twohig for the photos.
On the results front I expect we had a few PBs as this is the fastest course in the county but our prizewinners were.

Kevin Smith 2nd O/45
Margaret Jones 2nd O/50
