Hi all,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. Enjoy all the festivities and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

Club training finishes for this year on Wednesday the 19th and resumes on Monday the 7th Jan 2013.

Clonakilty Marathon / Half / 6 Mile

After an eventful day out in Clonakilty last Saturday we finally have the official results. They had a few problems with the original results with a few people getting mixed up in the wrong race. From the comments on the Cork Running Blog, they had a few blips along the way on this race from start to finish. Hopefully they can sort it out for next year.

In the 10k / 6miles, Rod Scanlon was our 1st man home to record a PB along the way in 40:43. Niamh Collins was our 1st lady over the line followed by Deirdre Troy and Joanne O Shaughnessy.

In the Half Marathon, Brian Cott was our 1st man home in an impressive 1:35 on what can only be described as a very tough course. Sandra Manning was our first lady to cross the line in 1:44. Brian Healy was next man home followed by Yvonne Sheahan. Miriam Reidy was our next lady home.


Kara Reilly ran her debut marathon on probably one of the toughest courses out there, Well Done Kara, in a very impressive time of 4:11.
