The County Senior and Masters 10 Mile Road championships took place in Galbally last Sunday where conditions were favourable starting off but as the race progressed the sun came up and made it a demanding performance by everyone. Still, we witnessed some earnest efforts by Club members as they set their sights on the Boston Scientific Half Marathon later this month and then the Dublin City marathon in October.
Conor Fleming ran very well when winning the over 55 title impressively when finishing 13th overall. Angela McCann having her 3rd race in four days showed no ill effects when winning the women’s title in 64 mins 30 secs in 16th place. Then we had Michael Moloney also running well when finishing 22nd. Anthony Power is another athlete running well at the moment and he too should be delighted with this performance when winning the over 60 silver medal when finishing 26th overall. Then we had Michael McNamara running very well on his first outing over tis distance when finishing 28th. Sareen Walsh also ran very well when winning the woman’s over 45 title impressively in 34th place. Helen o Ceallaigh is another athlete who should be delighted with her performance when winning the woman’s over 50 Silver impressively and shows that her training for the upcoming World Master Trail Championships in Clonmel in early September is going well. The we had Ton Quinn running well to win the over 65 Silver medal with a great run when finishing 45th overall.
In the Inter Club competition our women’s team of Angela McCann, Sareen Walsh and Helen O Ceallaigh won the silver medals while our men’s team finished 4th in their Inter Club event. That was the final event of this year’s County Senior Road Championships, and the club would like to thank all our members who competed in them as they all play their part in helping the Club to win the Michael Cahill Perpetual Cup for the Best Senior Club in the County Road Championships.
