Cloyne 5km
Letter from Margaret Twohig
 Hi Danny,

 Sincere thanks to all in Midleton AC that helped in any way in making the Cloyne 5K Road Race the huge success that it was last night.
 I hope i don't forget anyone - those that helped out with food, stewarding, advertising, race signs, entries etc. I cannot thank my great colleagues enough. I was overwhelmed if I'm honest with the support from you all. I just asked and YOU all HELPED.
 Finally to you all that ran - well done on your great runs and those mighty PB's. I am glad you all enjoyed it There are plenty photos on the Cork running blog with Doug Minihane, so share away!
Kind Regards again
Mags and All in Cloyne Community Council

                                               Another absolutely great night in Cloyne and a big congrats to Margaret Twohig and all the Cloyne crew that organised such a fantastic event. Impossible to fault it .Every aspect seemed to be catered for superbly and one must point out that the spread after was second to none. With a total of 603 runners for everything to go as smooth as it went shows some top class organising.
                                                  Our members had some great runs especially our ladies who seem to be on a PB roll namely Vicky Cleary,Rayleen Dolphin and Colette Barry the seem to be knocking off PBs at every race these days. There was also some top class running from the ever consistent Karen Grant (3rd), Helen Gilroy (5th) and Sheila Buckley (6th). Aoife Fouhy was another lady to do a great run getting a PB in 23,49.
                              Paul Spiteri  (17.45) also had a fantastic run and it was great to see Rod Scanlon (18.08) coming back from injury with a very fine run and also a PB to boot. Don Ryan consistently improving did a time of 18.45. Christopher McCarthy also had a PB in a time of 19.43. Anyone with PBs etc please send me in the details

Results are on Precision Timing website and whilst it is great having the chip timing there are several Midleton AC runners just listed as Midleton and some people who have nothing to do with Midleton AC listed as Midleton AC club runners. This is not the fault of  the Cloyne Organisers but of the imputing of names etc ,Whilst at a recent race one of our ladies was listed as male which could have cost her the prize she won except we spotted in time that she was well ahead of the ladies who were getting the prizes. Again tonight the same lady was being listed as F instead of her correct age cat. which she spotted again luckily in time to claim her prize. So make sure you fill in the forms correctly and double check the results and ask to have it corrected if its wrong. E mail

Neilus Aherne 1st O/55
Karen Grant 3rd Lady
Esther Murphy 1st O/40
