Ladies Mini Marathon 5KM
The Ladies Mini Marathon incorporating the Women's County 5KM Championships took place over a new route around the Marina. It was a tough uncomfortable course by most accounts.
We saw some really great running from Vicki Spiteri who finished 12th overall ( out of 3,000) and she took 1st O/35. There was also some great running from Nathalie O'Connell who is only getting back to race fitness as is Loveness Hegarty who also ran the cross country yesterday. Updates and photos of any others who ran are very welcome. Well done all.
Boston Scientific Half Marathon
We had one runners here on Saturday Amanda Cooney who clocked 2.21.00 in very tough conditions. Well done Amanda.
Cross Country report from Sally Drennan
The cross country season kicked off today with Day 1 of the East Cork Championships, which was the women's and men's novice races. It was a very well-organised day, run by St. Catherine's. Thanks also to John Hennessy and Mike Dorney for their hard work on behalf of the East Cork Athletics Board. Considering the amount of rain which fell in the past couple of days, the course was also in remarkably good condition.
