Day 3
Mallow 10 Mile
Today Monday saw the Mallow 10 take place in what were ideal conditions for racing.We had a large number of athletes competing and many got PBs and most had very good runs.
Star of the day was again Anna Doris who came an amazing 4th Lady overall in a new PB time of 64.28 This was Anna's tenth PB (over various distances) on the trot. A nice record to achieve.She ran extremely well holding her position all the way from the three mile mark.
Our other winner on the day was Margaret Barry who took 1st O/60. It was great to see Margaret back running well and back amongst the prizewinners where she belongs. Sinead Buckley had a superb run also as had Anne Marie Perry who continues to improve with every race and soon will be back to her old form.
Margaret Jones had again another PB and Carmel Deane paced by Sean O'Sullivan had an excellent run  others who had good runs were Sheila Buckley,Breda Cahill, Aoife Fouhy,Yvonne Kennedy,Claire Fitzgerald,Bernadette Twomey, Mary B Walsh,Joan Mc Carthy, Sue Murphy,Claire O'Leary and Mary Toher.

Again as always members are requested to let us know their achievements as it is impossible for us to know when you get a PB or run somewhere we are unlikely to know about etc.
So please lets us know what you want  mentioned on the blog.  any photos etc and we will do our best to put it on.     e mail

It has been mentioned that the ladies achivements get more highlighted than the male members that is in NO WAY intentional but the ladies are in the prizes more. So come on Guys start winning some more and we will be delighted to highlight that too.In the meantime we try and mention everyone's effort. Anyone wishing to take on the PRO job or assist with it are very welcome.


Day 2 St Patrick's Day
Ballinhassig 4 Mile

On what was a beautiful morning for running the Ballinhassig 4 Mile took place over a tough course. Michelle Kenny continued in her winning ways coming an easy First Lady in 25.19 with no one challenging her for her well deserved first place.
Other ladies who took prizes were Martha Mc Namara 3rd O/50 and Joan Mc Carthy 3rd O/55 well done ladies.
We had only one male in the prizewinner with Stanislaw Byczek 1st O/50. The prizes were presented by Pat Buckley Chairman Cork County Board A.A.I.. Others who had good runs were Susan Delaney,Kathleen O'Connell and Mary Toher also Paul Spitiri, Paul Kearns,Ned Ramsell,Alan Kelleher and Donie O'Connell. Michael McNamara who despite having done a long run yesterday with the Dev Group had an excellent run today also. The was as always very well organised with a fine spread afterwards and lots of Spot Prizes

Francis Maunsell had a great run in Tralee International Half Marathon with a new PB by over 3 mins in a time of 1:26:01, coming 14th overall. Francis who did 73 in Dungarvan last year brought his 10 mile time down to 63 this year for Dungarvan and Ballycotton must currently rank as one of the the most improved runner in the club and with today times showing how he continues to improve. Super running Francis well done!

Good luck to everyone doing the Mallow 10 tomorrow.
