Stone Mad Blarney Half Marathon
We had a very fine crew out on Sunday morning in some terrible weather for the Stone Mad Blarney Half Marathon. Everyone acquitted themselves very well.
Our first man home was Club Captain Declan Dorgan in 1.29.33 followed by the "Battle Of The Mc's" between Eugene McCarthy and his son Tiarnan which resulted in a draw in a time of 1.37.46. A really fine time for Tiarnan's first Half Marathon.
They were followed by Loveness Hegarty also running her first Half Marathon in the excellent time of 1.43.24. Then came Joseph Power 1.45.47, Louise Barry 1.49.28, then came Christine Murphy 1.54.20. Mike Dorney 1.59.47 and Amanda Cooney 2.17.13.
Apologies if I missed anyone. Please let me know.
Coffee and Treat Race!
Sunday 7th November 2021
As we face into the winter months the Midleton AC committee have decided to run a special ‘fun-run’ on Sunday next, the 7th November 2021.
The aim of this 4 mile ‘race’ is to have everyone finish at approx. 9.45am.
All participating runners are asked to be at the start line (Mile 1 of the Midleton5 course near the Gaelscoil) at the time appropriate to their own abilities (runners that can run 4 miles in 28 mins will start at 9.17 etc). Runners are asked to record their own finishing time at the finish line.
All participants will then be treated to a coffee and a treat from a local retailer at the finish line.
We hope that all of our members have had a productive year, that all are keeping themselves fit and healthy and that all are looking forward to maintaining a decent level of fitness through the winter months as we look forward in anticipation to a much busier race calendar in 2022.
Best wishes to all.
Midleton AC committee.
