Todays Newmarket 5Km was one of the fastest races around (making yesterdays Shanagarry 5km look like a Saturday morning jog) with young David Mc Carthy winning in a time of 14.15 (new course record) and the first three men all under 15 mins. Just shows good prizes brings out the big guns with 300 Euro going to the winner.Overall the prizes in this race were excellent and luckily our ladies again featured here.
Our first lady home was Anna Doris in an official time of 19.03 (even though her own watch showed her just under the 19 min mark.This was a new PB for Anna and just goes to show how the cross country running over the Winter can bring you on (plus hard work of course). Anna took 1st O/40 prize. Our other prize winner was Joan Mc Carthy who took 3rd O/55. Both ladies received fine cash prizes.Well done ladies.
Others from the club who took part were Denis Kelleher,Danny Mc Carthy and Mary Toher.
It was on out and back course and was very well stewarded with a fine spread after and lots of spot prizes.
