UCC 10Km/Carmel Lynch Memorial Race
Men Only
Its a long while since we had a headline like that but the only prizewinner we had in todays race was Tom Cody coming 3rd O/55.We had no ladies in the prizewinners though we had several PBs. On what was a very cold day with a strong wind blowing against the runners for the last two miles saw a slower than usual race.
Our first man home was Andre Brodkorb running a great race others who ran were Michael Kenneally,Brian Healy ,Donie O'Connell and Fionan O'hAodain who made a great job of his first 10Km.
Michelle Kenny was our first lady home stepping up from her more usual shorter distances suffered like many more from the wind.Maragret Jones just back from illness came home second followed by Anne Marie Perry who is improving with every run. Amongst others who ran were Aoife Fouhy, Margaret Twohig, Annette Fitzgerald, Marian Cronin, Sheila Bullman,Marie Gillman, Louise Barry and Joan McCarthy. Apologies if I missed anyone its not intentional but a total of 530 took part. There was a superb spread after with even hot food being served.
Note please above results are not in finishing order full results are available at


Our own annual race is coming up on the 2nd May and we are in the process of doing the organising and we need your help.
We need lots of stewards for the night and if you can help we would be delighted with the help. If you cannot run or have a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband ,wife ,teenager or a friend that  are willing to assist PLEASE let Edmond O'Sullivan know NOW text him please at 0868323267.
The reason we need to know asap is so we can assure the Garda that we have the required number of helpers etc also we pride ourselves on safety and were voted the "Best Race of 2012" and we want to keep things that way.
