MRRA report and photos Andre Brodkorb
We had three entries from Midleton AC at today’s Munster Mountain Running Association race in our own Curragh woods in Midleton. It is a hard and difficult race, but Henry Millard, Barry Williams and Siobhan Barry managed the steep slopes, which were transformed overnight from lovely summer trails to muddy and treacherous mountain trails. Well done everyone!

Another great night in Cloyne and superbly organised, It was wonderful to meet so many old friends and to see so many out running.
We had a great crew out and all ran well. The Flying Spiteri Duo both had great runs whilst Ger O'Regan narrowly missed out on a PB .Loveness Hegarty showed her class and had a cracking run and earned herself a PB.
A great evening was had by all and a big thanks to all our members who came out to support including young Tom McCarthy who was there to cheer on his Dad Eugene. Thank you Cloyne Community for making it all happen.
