Great Ireland Run

Neilus Aherne had another super run yesterday in awful conditions in the Great Ireland 10Km Nation Championships where he finished 4th O/60 in a great time of 39.58. With which he was of course happy out with such a good run.

Report from Kevin Moran

Just got a text from Richard Power who completed Rotterdam (a little way behind Francis) in just over 5 hours. 
Apparently it was a warm day for a run. 
Richard was back in long distance training shortly after his first marathon, which was Dublin last year. So well done to him.
Francis had a fine run of 3.15 approx. especially since he was ill the day before but unfortunately not near the time he hoped for and deserved.


Both Cobh 4 Mile and 10 Mile have been cancelled as has Round 1 of the East Cork Championships in Youghal.
One has to give full credit to the organisers of Cobh with making the right decision and putting the safety of athletes first. Many of the athletes would have been happy to run but Cobh put their safety as a priority and I am sure that will be rewarded when hopefully they will get another date by us coming out in greater numbers.

Please pass the word around about Youghal especially amongst the Juveniles . Thanks Danny

Rotterdam Marathon

The best kept secrets always come out. It has been kept quiet but I know everyone in the club really wishes Francis Maunsell the absolute very best in the Rotterdam Marathon tomorrow Sunday. Have a great one Francis you well deserve it after all the hard work. Danny

Ballintotis Runaround

The annual run around the Ballintotis course is on once again this year at 7pm next Thursday evening 14th April. Once again we have kindly been invited as a club by John Cashman to run the route and meet for a cuppa after in the hall. T


The big race in Cork this weekend is of course the Great Island 10 mile in Cobh. This is on Sunday morning the10th of April at 10:30am. You can enter the 10 mile on the day for €25 (4 mile €15). All proceeds from this race go towards the Irish Cancer Society.


Hi all,
For health and safety reasons, Monday night training will continue to be held at Midleton College Hockey Pitch (6-7pm) until further notice, as the Cricket field is still too wet to use for speed work.
As previously advised, this week, training moved from Wednesday for all groups to Tuesday 6:30-7:30pm outside the Community Centre.



Best Regards


Midleton AC
