International News

The brilliant news just in is that Midleton ACs Daniel Colbert has come 2nd in his race in Oordegem  Belgium with a new PB of 54.14
 This is absolutely incredible running he did 15 S to H8 and was really strong coming down the home straight. There is  no doubt he will dip below the 54 before very long.
Well done DANIEL your club is so proud of you.

Watergrasshill 5 Mile

                                                    Saturday morning saw the Watergrasshill AC organise there first 5Mile Road Race and a fine job they did too. We had our own John Dunphy there and he again did us proud with a time of 29.56 and this is in Watergrasshill where the second half of the race goes uphill on the old Fermoy Cork Road so it really is a tough course. And when Dunphy says its tough its tough. He also came 3rd overall. Roy Fahy was the winner. Now John has a days rest and off he goes to be a 9Min pacer in the Half Marathon on Monday.

Update On Gerry Forde

As most of you know Gerry Forde Wheelchair Athlete suffered a stroke recently and the club made a small donation to purchase an I Pad for him. Here is an update on his progress.

Hi All,

Just to bring you up to date on Gerry's progress. He has astonished the doctors in the CUH with the recovery that he has made and he is hopeful of being let out of hospital over the weekend. 

He will not be allowed (by his consultant) to drive for at least six weeks and with his computer on the 'blink' your kind offer of a donation towards the purchase of a laptop is a welcome and timely gesture.

You can see the specs and a photo of the laptop model that we purchased in PC World at the following website

It is a 'touchscreen' HP laptop and will be very easy for Gerry to navigate his way around the available programmes. We put a year supply of Macafee anti-virus software on it and also a Microsoft office package. We intend to present Gerry with the laptop and a get well card from the six sponsors early next week.

Gerry is really thankful to you all for your generous donation and he can't wait to be back on the 'racing' circuit when he can thank you in person.

Just for your information the six donating clubs were (and these were the first six that we asked):

Ballycotton Running Promotions
Eagle AC
Midleton AC
St Finbarr's AC
100 Marathon Club Ireland


Thanks again for your prompt and kind offer and on behalf of Gerry please convey that thanks to the members of your respective clubs as well.

Best Wishes 
Pat Twomey and Michael O'hAodain.

Kilcredan + Doneraile 5Kms

Victory For Helen

                                              Helen Gilroy got her first  overall WIN tonight in the Danny Byrne 5Km in Doneraile Park and I know everyone in the club will join with me in congratulating her on this very well deserved achievement .
                                         This is not an easy course and she did a great time of 19.40 and those North Cork girls are not easy to beat but beat them she did in great style powering up the final hill to victory. I have no photo to hand at present but am trying to get one. Sheila Buckley was also in the prize winners coming home a super 5th Lady and she will be a "running buddy" for Louise Barry in the Half Marathon on Monday.

Margaret Twohig and Co. Discussing the organisation of Cloyne 5Km no doubt.
Joy with our youngest supporter  Ava  (already signed up to Midleton AC)

Kilcredan 5Km

This was again a fantastic race tonight not as "fast and flat" as advertised but a challenging and good course. It was superbly well organised with loads of stewards and their prizes were an example to many other races with three in every category up to O/65. All round from parking to food the race was an example of how things should be done.

As a club we did fantastic with Karen Grant continuing her great form and coming 2nd Lady home. Paul Spiteri also had a great run coming 6th man home in 18 mins. and almost everyone I spoke to had great times or PBs so rather than getting into individual times ( they are available on precision timing page) I will list the prize winners.

Karen Grant 2nd Lady

Margaret Jones 1st O/45 (and PB)

Joan Mc Carthy 2nd O/55

Kathleen O’Connell 1st O/60

Sean O’Sullivan 3rd O/40

John Cashman 1st  O/45

Neilus Aherne 1st O/55

Donie O’Connell 2nd O/60

Danny McCarthy 3rd O/60
This was surely a great night for the club with great results in both the North and East of the county so lets hope it augers well for the rest of the weekend. Also a big "Thank You" to all those club members and friends who just came to support.


The Sexton Clan with Ava who will be the fastest of them all.

Louise and Margaret discussing Half Marathon tactics for Monday.

                                                        What a weekend of running that is ahead of us. Starting last night with Old Abbey 5km whilst tonight sees Kilcredane 5Km and the race in memory of my old friend the great Danny Byrne 5km in Doneraile Park. Tomorrow sees two Park Runs one in Macroom and one in Clonakilty whilst our friends Watergrasshill have a Fun Run. See previous listings for times Etc.Then the big one on Monday with the Cork Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay.

                                 We wish everyone involved in the Marathon the very best hoping the weather cools down a bit. I know we have lots of members involved so here's hoping ye all get the times ye deserve. In the half marathon Louise Barry with running buddy Sheila Buckley will be out for a great one as will Fionan O'hAodain whist John Dunphy will be a 9 Min Pacer. Aoife Fouhy and Catherine Terry will be there too and glad of every cheer they get as they fly past.
                                             We have several teams in the Relay including a team in the mix relay of Rod Scanlan, Paul Spiteri,Emmet Ronan,Karen Grant and Mike Cremin. All these have been running very well of late so we are hoping for great things from them. Peter Gunning has 5-6 teams doing the Marathon in aid of Saleen school.
                                               In the full we have Mary B Walsh doing her umpteenth marathon and no doubt will have another good one whilst Margaret Jones who is running brilliantly at the moment will be going for another PB for the half.

Best of luck also to Derek Aherne who will be making his half marathon debut.

Hoping for a TOP 10
TEAM "Running out of time"
With three club members AndrĂ© Brodkorb, Barry O’Dwyer and Declan Dorgan and two others. They would have been four club runners but Chris has an injury.
Really looking forward to it as we are all about the same level and we aim for the top ten 2:45-2:47h – we’ll see.
                                                               If you are running please let the blog know so we can list you that way people can look out for you and give you support also it really helps to wear your Midleton AC colours that way you are spotted more easily and you will be guaranteed support from people you don't even know. e mail .

Anyone not running or stewarding PLEASE come up and support the crew because every shout and cheer helps gain those vital few seconds also a big thanks to those club members and friends of the club who are stewarding because without your help the race could not go on.

For anyone doing the marathon or in need of them at any time An Rothar (The Bike Shop Midleton) are doing a SPECIAL OFFER on gels.HIGH 5 Gels get 10 for 10 Euro or a box for 20Euro.Tell them Midleton AC sent you.


The weekend got off to a great start last night with a powerful run of 18.56 by John Dunphy. This is brilliant running especially considering the tough course. He also picked up 2nd O/40-50 for his trouble.

The County Board have asked the club to  provide stewards for the Cork City Marathon. So we would be delighted if some of our members volunteered .We know several of our members are taking part and you could also lend them support whilst stewarding at the same time. This is an opportunity to give something back to your own sport and enjoy the race as well.
If you are able to help please contact Ger Foley 0863317710.

Emmet Ronan had a fantastic run on Friday evening in Ardmore coming home in a time of 29.15 which was 45 sec faster than his time there last year. Just goes to show all the hard Winter work pays off. Not only that but he took 1st Taurus as well. For those not familiar with this race it is run under male and female star signs with prizes for the first under each sign.

Ballyandreen 5


                                                                       Last night in Ballyandreen saw some amazing running by many of our members especially our ladies. Karen Grant won the ladies race in a time of 31.13 This is the first ladies winner we had since the first race when Mary Dunne (O'Keeffe ) won it in 1981. Our ladies Karen Grant, Anna Doris and Helen Gilroy took 1St Team with 15 pts from St Finbarrs 2nd 18pts and EagleAC 3rd 30pts. Whilst many feared the Beast Of Ballyandreen there were lots of complaints afterwards about the Bitch Of Ballyandreen (the hill before the beast).

We had way too many there to go into all the individual successes but some people had brilliant runs. Our first man home in a great time was Paul Spiteri followed by John Dunphy  then Karen Grant followed by Eugene McCarthy. Mike Dolphin out for a tempo run with Helen Gilroy had great runs.

Many others had fantastic runs including the ever improving Louise Barry and an absolutely brilliant run was had by Rayleen Dolphin who got a new PB and knocked seven minutes off last year’s time. Fionan O’hAodain also had a great run knocking almost two mins off his PB Christopher McCarthy also had a super run. Don Ryan constantly improving got another PB. and Fergal O'Meara showed his unused marathon training is paying off the dividends with a great run. Great also to see Martha McNamara back amongst the prize winners.

A big well done must go to the ladies from last Sept. Beginners Group who took on the Beast for the first time. Paula O’Sullivan. Emer O’Doherty, Helen Kenny and Sarah Bermingham.

Vickie Cleary had a fantastic run in Ballyandreen running a great time of 37.43 which was a new PB and is especially amazing considering the work she put in to the Emer Casey Race last weekend.

Individual Prize Winners

Karen Grant 1st Lady

Anna Doris 2nd O/40

Helen Gilroy 1st O/45
Margaret Jones 2nd O/45

Martha McNamara 3rd O/50

Neilus Aherne 1st O/55

If you got a PB or had a great or bad run or if your friend or training partner got PBs etc please let the blog. know.
I cannot possibly know everyone's PBs etc. and rather than moaning about it on Facebook or at training that achievements are not being mentioned or honoured all you have to do is send it in.
The blog is and has always been delighted  to receive submissions but is dependent on the information it receives.

also if you are NOT a member of Midleton AC (you are always welcome to join) Please do not enter the race as Midleton AC as this messes up the results especially when there are teams etc involved. State clearly who you are with or unattached etc.Thanks.

 1 Mile Race ( from Andre Brodkorb )

Roger Bannister and the 60th anniversary of his first sub-four-minute mile were widely covered in the media a few weeks ago. Did you ever wonder how fast you could cover one mile? Well, I am keen to know! Therefore, I intend to organise an informal 1 mile road race in Midleton.

Date: Thursday 5th June

Course: Start at the 2 mile mark, finish at the 1 mile mark of the Midleton 5 mile course

Time:  8pm, traffic should be calmer around that time

We can meet at 7.30pm at the 1 mile mark, plenty of space to leave your car, bike, water bottles etc. do a good warm-up run to the 2 mile mark and some stretching. We will need two cars (or bikes), one in front and one at the back – volunteers needed! I created a doodle counter to get an indication of how many will turn up on the night, just follow the instructions here

This will be an unofficial race, we can call it a training event for Midleton AC members to keep numbers under control.

Informal, self-timing, no bells and whistles – just running.
See you then
