Midleton Crew ‘HQ’ IN Ballycotton

Donie and Kathleen O’Connell’s car located near the Pitch & Putt Club has become something of a Midleton HQ on race days. Again this year there should be plenty of activity as members gather for their traditional pre race run around the Pitch & Putt course from 12.30pm onwards. Donie and Kathleen have kindly offered again to keep any surplus gear in their car for members to collect afterwards.

Athletes Keep Busy

Whilst most of us are focussed just on Sunday’s race, a number of our colleagues have been active on the race front. Denis Kelleher ran a superb 37.27 to finish 2nd Over 45 (16th overall) in the Dungarvan 10K on Sunday, whilst Neilus Aherne was also collecting silver as runner up in the Over 55’s in the Adare 10K, producing another top performance.

Meantime, Mary Toher is in the middle of a very busy schedule.
Mary completed the Brighton Half Marathon on Sunday 19 Feb - (8000 approx took part) She also looking forward to their full marathon coming up on April 15 (10,000 entered) and prior to that the Paddock Wood Half Marathon on April 1st. With Ballycotton on Sunday next Mary is certainly keeping the miles clocked up on both sides of the water.
