Fantastic Top Five Finish For Sinead

Out of a crowd of around eight thousand in Sunday's Evening Echo Mini Marathon. Sinead Keavney finished a very fine fifth position in 23.13 (prov.) which would also give her 2nd O/40. A fantastic atmosphere prevailed as always on this great occasion. Other Midleton AC runner's who ran fine runs were Claire Parker, Karen Knowles, Caroline Cashman and Shevaun Hogan. I don't know if any other Midleton AC members ran but please let me know if you did.

Report from Siobhan Murphy on Tipperary Trail Marathon

Just a quick report from sunny Lanzarote re the full & half marathon races in Tipperary last weekend!
It was a first for myself to run a trail half marathon, & I was intrigued to see how it compared to a road half. Barry Williams & Mike Hallihan ran the full marathon together, another notch to their ever expanding race belts! 
Tucked away up a narrow bristly track hidden from the picturesque village of Lissverrnane we were lead to the start line. My race started at 12noon, the full Marathon at 10am & the ultra at 8am. The terrain was challenging to say the least - & it had it all! Rough fire road, sprawling puddles, gouged pathways, mud, forestry carpet, tarmac, sand, more mud, horse droppings, deep water was brilliant! The legs had trouble calculating what the eyes were seeing there was so much to navigate. The climb for the half was c.500 metres & c.1000 for the full, one loop of the course for the half, two for the full (and three for the ultra 😩). 
We were treated to a hot meal, showers (these were not hot!), craft beers (I know!)& a free massage after our races. I was happy to accept the offerings in no particular order as I dragged myself across the finish line. Job done, a tough one but I'm looking forward to signing up again next year!
