San Francisco Half Marathon

She is some amazing woman Midleton ACs Sheila Buckley she goes on holiday to USA and whilst there does a half marathon in San Francisco in the heat but no bother to Sheila she does it in 98 mins and comes home in 18th place. Great result.

Bay Run

Reports coming in from the Bay Run have all our runners doing very well despite the heat among those finished are Carmel Deane, Shane Gannon, Andrea Mc Namara, Aidan O'Herlihy, Pat Walsh, Margaret Jones and Catherine Terry. This is not the finishing order.
Shane Gannon had a superb run in 1.37.48 getting himself a new PB by over 6 mins in the process.
Great Limerick Run

As far as I know we had only one runner in the 10Km here today with Trish Coady having a fantastic run  in 50.29 over 5 mins ahead of her hoped for time. Trish is just recovering from injury sustained after the Dublin Marathon last Oct. so she appears well on the road to recovery after todays run.
Well done also to Don O'Callaghan who had a fantastic run in the marathon by all accounts.

South Munster Schools

Fantastic results from Daniel Colbert in the South Munster Schools
where he came first in both the Senior 110m Hurdles and the 400m Hurdles.Well done Daniel.
