V M Ware 5Km Ballincollig

How wonderful to see so many from our club at this race this evening. Far too many to mention them all. It was still very hot at 8pm when the race started and despite it being a very nice course there were not many PBs. but we had some very fine running and prize winners too.

Our first Lady home was Helen Gilroy having another great run. She finished 4th overall and took the 1st O/50 prize. Edwin Cashman was our first man home and led the Midleton Town Council team to victory. Also on the team were Derek Aherne and the third team member and having a brilliant run whilst getting a PB was Michael Abernethy. They took 1st Team in Grade B. James Long had a great run with 17.59 breaking the 18min barrier and getting a PB.

Edmond O'Sullivan was also an individual prize winner taking 2nd O/55 whilst Paul Geary running for the host team V M Wear was part of the 1st Grade C team winners.

It was a really well organised event with a very efficient spread after and some great prizes to be had.
