Cork County Road Racing Championships

The Cork County Road Racing Championships take place on Tuesday 17th March at 12noon in Banteer (near Mallow). We always as a club have a great crowd at these races and hopefully we will be doing the same this year. Please let Sally or Andre know if you are interested asap. Its only an hours drive and we can car pool or get a bus. You must wear your club singlet.

Fenor 10 Mile

We had three runners here today at the Fenor 10 Mile near Dunhill, Co Waterford. David Cody, John Cashman and Neilus Aherne. John won 1st O/55 and Neilus won 1st O/60. Well done guys as they say two out of three aint bad.

Crosshaven 10Km and 5Km

We had two runners here today representing our club. Declan Dorgan had a great run here in the 10Km finishing fifteenth over all in a time of 40.04 and Barry Drennan also had a great run in the 5Km taking 2nd M60. We had one lady Mary O'Keeffe who won 1st O/50. A total of two hundred and twenty eight ran the 5Km and three hundred and three ran the 10Km.

Duhallow 10 Mile

A total of three hundred and ninty five runners ran in Duhallow on Sunday and we had a nice crew there representing our club. Our first man home was Mick Murphy who ran 67.45 and he was followed by Dan Twohig who also had a fine run. Our first lady was Helen Gilroy who ran 71.49 and won 1st O/50 whilst Esther Murphy won 1st O/45 and Marie Gillman 3rd O/55. Our other ladies who also had good runs were Louise Barry and Amanda Cooney. Well done all in the tough conditions that were out there today.

For the weekend that is in it. Memories are made of this.

Best of luck to all running and racing this weekend. We have two races in Crosshaven and the Duhallow 10 Mile and no doubt some will be reliving old memories in Ballycotton. Members please send in any photos and reports.

Don't forget this is coming up shortly the first evening race of the season and a great race at that.
