Blast From The Past

Fading fast but never ever to be forgotten. How many of you recognise this famous start and finish line ?.

Half On The Head

Club member Esther Murphy ran the Half On The Head on Saturday.The Half on the Head follows a wonderfully scenic course from Ballyheigue Village right around the Kerryhead loop before ending up back at the start point. The 13.1 mile run takes you along one of the most unspoilt portions of the Wild Atlantic Way. Run beside the Shannon Estuary with views across the river mouth to the coast of Clare. Glancing back you will see the rugged Kerry coastline stretching to the town of Ballybunion. You might even catch a glimpse of the fabled Cliffs of Dooneen.

Day Two East Cork Track and Field

This event takes place on grass in Ballynoe next Thursday evening and is well worth trying out. Everyone of you are more than able for these distances and you have a chance of winning an East Cork medal. Its only fifteen minutes out the road and you could even warm up with the Trail Running session if you felt so inclined.

Date For The Diary

On 17th August in the Hunted Hog.
More details to follow shortly.

Coolagown 5Km

Anne Geary Wins Coolagown

We had a fine crew out in Coolagown on Thursday evening where Ann Geary showed she is regaining her form. Ann who had a few seconds this year was a clear winner in Coolagown running a very good race. Incidentally she was second here last year.

Other fine runs were had by Edmond O'Sullivan who won 1st O/55 and Neilus Aherne who stopped half way around to give a massage to an injured East Cork runner and still managed to win 2nd O/60. The rest of our men John Cashman, Tom Cody, Donie O'Connell and Brian Martin had fine runs also.

Kathleen O'Connell won 1st O/60 whilst Anne Marie Perry, Joan McCarthy and Noreen O'Riordan had excellent runs.
