We Need Help

On Tuesday 3rd May meeting at Market Green at 7pm

Race prepping of signage on course and distribution of leaflets to residents 

On Race Night we need all the food and goodies to put on a great spread for all the participants 

Midleton AC 5 is always renowned for having the best food after the race.

PLEASE help out again this year by making sanwiches and treats.

Thanks Marc Dalton Race Director

Note : No official training on Monday as it is a Bank Holiday 


We had three runners in Belfast today. Margaret Jones 3.43 described it as the hardest run she ever did recovering from Covid. Loveness Hegarty  making her debut did a great 4.05 which is superb considering the short length of time she had to train for it and the ever consistent Bernie Twomey 4.15. 
Special mention for super supporters Gillian Bransfield and her cousin at the runners request "she was brilliant" they said. A report from Bernie will follow tomorrow.

Great Limerick Run

We saw some great running from our crew in various distances in Limerick today. Ger O'Regan 3.04.12 New PB. Mark Cronin 3.23.47 New PB, Paul O'Reilly 3.24.39 all in the Marathon.
In the Half Marathon Daniel Bloom 1.17.46, Derek Ahern 1.25.57, Declan Dorgan 1.27, Mark Walsh 1.35.05
In the 19Km Mary Walsh 1.08.49

Kindred Spirits 

A big thanks to Martin O'hiarlaithe and the Kindred Spirits group who organised a clean up of the route on Sunday morning and to Kathleen and the Carrigtwohill Tidy Towns group who helped also.

CONNEMARA Marathon and Half Marathon

Club members Cara Levey and James Long ran in the Connemarathon last Sunday 24th April, along with Caras brother Andrew. It was Caras first half marathon and James first marathon. It was a tough course but the weather and scenery made up for the hills. Cara is fundraising for the Mercy Hospital for paediatric cancer patients if anyone would like to donate

Thanks To Sarah for the Report
