Inter Counties X country

Michelle Kenny had another great run today in the inter counties Cross Country Championships where she helped the Cork Team get the Bronze.She ran 30.31 which over a cross country course which  is a great time for 5 Miles on the roads not alone cross country.

Sixmilebridge Half Marathon

Well done to John Dunphy who if there was an award for bravery he would win it hands down.That would be for a man wearing the Midleton colours in Sixmilebridge today where he ran a superb time of 1.30.12 in the half marathon.Unfortunately our hurlers did not do as well.
As John says its a shame about the colours on the medal especially for a Corkman.
Killarney Update

Fantastic running all round in Killarney with loads of PBs so proud of everyone and a huge thank you from everyone to Mike Dolphin who organised the whole thing to run like clockwork. Results can be got from Precision Timing or the Feet First Facebook page.Sheila Buckley had another fantastic run to come second(she came first in the Run In The Dark last Wed night if they managed to get the results right) closely followed by a brilliant run from Helen Gilroy Our first man home was Mike Dolphin but let the photo's speak for themselves.Thanks again Mike for a brilliant weekend.

After that as Boss Man Mike says "what happens on tour stays on tour" but lets just say we all met up at 8am Sunday morning and ran the course again.

Mount Oval 6Mile

Christopher McCarthy had a great run here today over a very tough course clocking a time of 43.02 which on this course is excellent.
and the great Neilus Aherne took 2nd O/55 whilst Matt Chojan did 38:12 and finished in 23rd position.


Good luck to all the crew travelling with the club on our annual outing to run this 5km in Killarney @11am on Sat..Its going to be an early start with the bus leaving Mdt Park Hotel at 8.15.Killarney wont know what hit it when it will see the mass of Mdt AC singlets.

Mount Oval 6 Mile

This race takes place Sun Morning @ 11am organised by the BHAA it is a really lovely run with lots of great prizes and great grub after.Only thing there are a few hills so be prepared for them but then there are some nice downhills also. Well worth doing.
