Midleton News 18/11/2012

Munster Champions

On Monday evening last, our Munster Champions were honoured with their medals and cup. Over 50 members turned up for training to congratulate the winning ladies team. Orlaith Farmer, Michelle Kenny, Anna Doris and Sally Drennan were kitted out head to toe in Midleton AC apparel. Both Orlaith and Michelle had double honours having secured a medal with the cork team also.

Well done again girls on a remarkable achievement.

Lanzarote Trip 2012

As we come in to the last few weeks of the season the, 15 of the clubs seasoned pro’s head off to the bi-annual training camp in Club La Santa Lanzarote. This is our second time going to this location for winter training without the rain. I’m sure all will comply with the no alcohol or partying ritual. It’s a great trip to kick back and relax after along hard year of competitive training and racing. The majority of the group will run in the 10k race on Sunday 25th in Club La Santa. It should be a good trip and all will be revealed in next week’s report. Enjoy it lads.

Run In the Dark

Plenty of Midleton AC athlete’s turned up to support the great cause in the Run in the dark 5k and 10k race last Wednesday. It proved to be a huge success both in Cork and Dublin with over 1100 competing in Cork. Lots of people were worried about tight streets at night, but from all comments it worked out to plan in the end without any mishaps.
