Tinman Ireland

Edmond O'Sullivan did not go to Youghal but instead ventured to Carlow this weekend where he came 1st O/55 and 2nd overall in the Town Centre Park Run. Midleton AC on tour once again.


So totally proud and overawed by our three IRONMAN competitors out there today in all the wind and the rain and delighted to see their success along with all the others. Heart braking, soul destroying, awesome, amazing, unbelievable are words echoing around the streets all day. To say well done in this case just is not enough lets just say " BRILLIANT"

A big well done  also to all our club members who stewarded and supported  for the six hour stints and longer.

Thanks to Claire Fitzgerald, Dan Twohig, Louise Barry and others for the photos. Any more please Whats App them or send them to or 0872403940 Danny

Nice run coming up next Wednesday evening.

Viking Waterford Marathon and Half Marathon

Paul Geary not only went trail running a few days after his Cork Marathon today Saturday he did the full marathon in Waterford and had a great run. He was very pleased with his run as he should be clocking 3.45 and for the first time not stopping once. He says the organisation was great and he was ably assisted by his "wingman" Derek Ahern ( Paul's words).

Derek did the half and was also very pleased pacing himself well and using it as a training run. Well done lads.

We wish the very best of luck to our three members taking part in the IRONMAN on Sunday next. Susan Fitzgerald, Miah McGrath and David Ginnell. Hopefully all will go well for ye and we will be dotted around cheering ye on.

Date For The Diary

This race has an Athletics Ireland permit and is over an accurately measured course with all funds going to a very worthy cause the National Rehabilitation Hospital. Well worth doing.

East Cork Track and Field

This took place in Ballynoe on Thursday  evening and we were very well represented by Ger O'Regan who proved once again that he is turning into a very fine track runner. Ger won Silver in the 1500m O/45 and Bronze in 5000m O/45. Two more medals to add to his growing collection. 

Donoughmore 7

We had three runners in Donoughmore prepared to "Take The Challenge" as their slogan says and all had very good runs. John Cashman 3rd O/55 and Neilus Aherne 1st O/60 once again. Joan McCarthy also had a very fine run. This is one of the toughest courses around and going by its slogan not for the faint hearted.

Neilus and John after being released for the night.

Trail Running

A fine crew turned up again on Thursday evening for the Trail Running session. This week saw Walshtown Woods in use once again. This used to be the venue once upon a time for the Captain's Run over a four mile loop but it is still a very good training venue and well worth using.
