Togher 5Km

                                             A total of 288 runners took part in this race today Sat.28th at 11 am. It was the first running of the event and proved itself a great success with only a few small problems. The results were very slow for a race that had chip timing but that can be easily overcome and hopefully it will become an annual event. The course was well stewarded and is very similar to the BHAA race that was a regular evening race there for a number of years.We had a great crowd from Midleton AC there and as usual we had some prizewinners.Joan Hough 2nd O/55 and Neilus Aherne 1st O/55.
Lots of others had fine runs including John Dunphy who having had his head gasket replaced equaled his PB of 18.15 He was followed by local man Morgan O'Regan with 18.56 then Neilus Aherne 19.25 John Cashman 20.04 ,Christopher McCarthy 20.56 Paul Kierans 21.12 Joan Hough 21.27 John O'Halloran 22.02, Lorna Santry 23.56. Aoife Jones 25.34 ( new PB) , Maeve Horgan 28.51, Joan Mc Carthy30.29 Sile Kearns 33.36, Mary Toher 35.54. Sorry if I omitted anyone but full results are available on the corkrunning blog..
