UCC Carmel Lynch Memorial 10Km

This race took place on Sunday in fine conditions and with the rain holding off made it a grand day for running. We had as usual a fine crew out  all having some great runs. Our first man home was Noel O'Regan having a very powerful run and our first lady was Esther Murphy. We had one prize winner with Marie Gillman taking 1st O/50 whilst several of our other runners would have collected prizes if they had been registered with BHAA in time most notably Mark Walsh who took first O/55 in a sprint finish but didn't qualify for the prize but will next time out. The afters were of the usual UCC very high standard.
