Midleton AC Virtual 5 k Series!

Our first virtual 5k series has gotten off to a solid start and by 9pm last night we had a very respectable 37 runners that had completed race 1. The aim of this series is to track the improvements made by our athletes over a 4 week period and last night set the benchmark that each runner will be competing against on a weekly period!
Well done to all that participated this week. There were some very impressive results from a large number of people this week with Morgan O’Regan and Eileen Leahy being quickest man and woman!
A special mention goes to 16 year old John Spelman who posted a very impressive 20min and 8 seconds that saw him finish in 5th place overall! With talented athletes such as this coming through our juvenile section the future of our club is very bright indeed!
Finally, the purpose of our virtual 5k race is to give people a focus. Although we may mention names as part of our weekly report we will not order participants from fastest to least fastest…..we will instead focus on highlighting improvements made - so keep training!
Week 2 begins from 6am Tuesday 12th May and results will be accepted up until 9pm Wednesday 13th May.

Best wishes.
Paul Geary, Derek Ahern, Declan Dorgan and Fergal O’Meara.
