Clonmel Athletic Club Notes 2nd April

Great Performances in the Manchester marathon

The Manchester Marathon took place last weekend and the Club was well represented in this event. Shane Greene ran very well when finishing 311th in 2 hours 58 mins 8 secs we also had good performances from Richard O Gorman 944th in 3:14:48, Noel Gillman 1095th in 3:18:00, John Laste 1400th in 3:23:49, Anthony Power 2666th in 3:42:20, Sean McCarthy 3716th in 3:54:50, Miriam O Gorman 4033rd in 3:57:57 and Niall McCarthy 5322nd in 4:17:24.

 

Liverpool Half Marathon

This event also took place last weekend and here Jimmy Boland was the Club representative and he ran very well when finishing 47th in 80 mins 17 secs. He ran very well going through 5 miles in 29 mins 57 secs and through 10 miles in 60 mins 42 secs.

 

Wins for Jimmy Boland and Linda Grogan

The Morrison Mini Cahir sponsored 6k road series got off to a fantastic start last week, despite the bad weather before the race with 243 athletes representing 55 teams, absolutely brilliant and thanks to all the team Captains for all their help. Thanks also to the Gardai and our many stewards who ensured that the whole event was a brilliant success.

Well done to Jimmy Boland (Smooth Operators) who was 1st in 21 mins 13 secs, Joey Feery (Boston Scientific A ) 2nd in 22 mins 12 secs and Brian Looram (The Pacers) 3rd in 22 mins 18 secs. The top three women were 1st Linda Grogan (Individual) 24 mins 23 secs, Suzanne Shine ( Pedal to the Metal) 2nd in 24 mins 48secs and 3rd Aine Roche (O Gorman’s Bakery) in 24 mins 56 secs.

In the team competition we have 5 Divisions this year, such is the interest.

For many athletes it was their first run over this route and so it was hard for them to accurately predict their time. Taking this into account we have brought in a Default System just for tonight’s results. In Division One the default is that all the teams regardless of what they scored tonight they are within 30 points of the Leaders, it is also the same Default, 30 points in Division Two. While in Division 3, 4 and 5 the Default is 40 Points. This format gives every team a chance of success. Please note that the Default only works for race 1, so all teams have a chance of prizes. As regards Prizes there will be Prizes for the 1st 3 teams in each Division. We have had a brilliant response this year to this event and so we have decided that for Race 3 Only, we will reward a team in each Division that records the lowest number of points in Race 3 and who finishes outside the top three of that Division, an Award, so all the teams in each Division have a opportunity to win such an Award. Everyone will have ran this route at least two times so everyone will have a fair idea of what time they can predict for the 3rd race. So there will be four team prizes to run for in each Division.

Please note that the Presentation of Prizes will take place in Mulcahy’s, Gladstone Street on Wednesday 19th April at 9pm where we will have Food and Music and a great night is guaranteed.

As regards the way we drew up the Divisions, the top Divisions are made up of teams with seasoned athletes while the other Divisions are a mixture of Fun Runners and Newcomers

We would also like to thank the Tipperary Educational Training Board for the use of their fine facilities at the Mall as Race Headquarters for this series of races.

 

Munster Road Championships

 

Currow, County Kerry was the venue for this year’s Munster Senior Women’s Road Championships where Aine Roche was our sole representative. Aine ran well when finishing 10th overall in 25 mins 24 secs. She was 3rd scorer on the Tipperary Senior women’s team that won Bronze medals.

The Club is defending both Senior Individual titles and Senior Club titles won last year over the same course. In the Women’s 5k race the defending Champion is our own Aine Roche and we wish her the very best in defending her title. Hopefully we can also defend the Club title won last year by the team of Aine, Siobhan McHugh and Annemarie Boland. We have the talented athletes and we have a very good chance of success provided we get all our members out to compete over what is a very good flat route. In the Men’s race the defending Champion is Kevin Maunsell who piped his brother William for the title last year close to the finishing line. Again we are hoping to defend the Club title won by the team of Kevin, William, Nigel O Flaherty and Jimmy Boland last year over this course. We have the athletes well capable of defending this title provided all our members come out and compete as everyone is eligible for these Championships.

Clonmel Athletic Club Notes 23rd April

 

Silver lining day for the Club

 

The Club travelled to the County Junior and Senior Road Championships last Sunday in Dundrum. It was great to have Club athletes competing in three out of the four Championship races and it was great to see that all four races were very competitive. In the Junior Men’s 3k we have brilliant debuts from Riain Patterson and Daniel Slattery in this event. Both athletes ran very well with Rian running very well to win his first County Junior medal when winning the Silver medal in 10 mins 36 secs. Then we had Daniel Slattery also running very well when winning the County Junior Bronze medal, his first County Junior medal, by finishing 3rd in 10 mins 50 secs.

In the Senior Women’s 5k we had a very good entry of athletes representing the Club. Kealey Tideswell ran very well when finishing 4th in 19 mins 16 secs just edged out for the Bronze medal by 2 seconds. It is great to see Kealey running well again. Then we had Aine Roche also running well when finishing 6th in 19 mins 40 secs. Hot on her heels was Suzanne Shine who also ran very well when finishing 7th in 19 mins 48 secs. These three athletes combined very well to win the Silver medals in what was a very competitive team event. We also had good performances from Michelle Doherty who was 12th in 20 mins 41 secs, Aisling English 26th in 23 mins 12 secs, Annemarie Boland ran very well when finishing 31st in 24 mins 9 secs, Mellissa McCarthy 32nd in 24 mins 9 secs, Martina Crotty 35th in 24 mins 58 secs and Helen O Ceallaigh 36th in 25 mins 7 secs, great performances all round and our team of Michelle, Aisling and Annmarie Boland were piped for the Bronze medals on countback, still very good performances.

In the Senior Men’s event William Maunsell made his intentions known from the start when going to the front and dictating the pace. Twelve months ago over this same course William was edged out of the title by his brother Kevin close to the finishing line. William was determined to add this title and so he set a strong pace that soon had the field scattered. He maintained this relentless pace to come home a very clear and convincing winner in a brilliant time of 30 mins 58 secs, fantastic solo effort by a determined athlete. Then we had Michael Carey making his debut in this Championship event and he ran very well when finishing 4th in 33 min 8 secs. Then we had Nigel O Flaherty also running well when finishing 14th in 35 mins 31 secs and with Jimmy Boland also running well when finishing 17th in 35 mins 57 secs, this quartet won the Inter Club Silver medals and were beaten by a strong Dundrum team for the Gold medals.  We also had good performances from Joey Feery 21st in 37:31, Conor Fleming 25th in 38:08, Brian Carroll 26th in 38:11, Billy Moloney 33rd in 38:50, Brian Looram 34th in 39:00, James Denn 38th in 39:30,Pat O Connor 39th in 39:32, Oliver Lynch 40th in 39:40, Mark Corcoran 49th in 41:15, James O Brien 52nd in 42:05, John Laste 53rd in 42:21, Alan O Shea 55th in 43:47, John Perry 57th in 43:57 and Ian Patterson 59th in 49:37. Our team of Joey Feery, Conor Fleming and Brian Carroll combined to win the Inter Club Silver medals in the B Section.  We wish Anthony Bowen a speedy recovery form an injury he picked up before the race.

Clonmel Senior Athletic Club Notes 30th April

Kevin Maunsell wins Limerick Half Marathon

The Great Limerick Run series of races took place today in good conditions and it was great to see Club members taking part in the Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K. Pride of place goes to Kevin Maunsell who won the Half Marathon today in 67 mins 46 secs, making it two wins out of two over the Half Marathon distance. He made his Half Marathon debut in the 2015 Boston Scientific Half Marathon in Clonmel which he won in a course record time of 68 mins 25 secs. Today he was in the chasing pack for the first few miles, clipping along at a good comfortable pace going through 3k in 8 mins 24 secs, 9K in 29:30, catching the leader at around 8 miles. He then increased the pace going through 17K in 55:24 and coming home  a clear winner in a new PB of 67 mins 46 secs, brilliant running and it is great to see Kevin running so well at the moment, averaging 5 mins 11 secs a mile, brilliant. He also won his first Munster Senior title with this win as this event also incorporated the Munster Half Marathon Championships. We also had some other great performances in the Half Marathon including David Ryan who also ran very well when finishing 3rd over 40 in 76 mins 20 secs, going through 9K in 32:19 and averaging 5:50 mile pace. Then we had Jimmy Boland also running very well when finishing in 78 mins 41 secs, going through 9K in 33:14 averaging 6:01 mile pace. Billy Prout also ran well when finishing in 97 mins 28 secs, going through 17K in 78:31 while Pat Coffey also ran well when finishing in 98 mins 23 secs and going through 17K in 80:16.

In the Marathon we also had great performances and here we salute the great performance by Joey Feery who ran the classic distance in 2 hours 56 mins 55 secs, brilliant performance. I recently read in a magazine that only 2% of athletes that run Marathons manage to break the three hour barrier, well done Joey on such an achievement. Joey ran a smart race going off steady and clipping along at 6 mins 50 secs mile pace up to halfway and was running very comfortably and reached halfway in 89 mins 20 secs. He kept that pace going and was still full of running as he entered the last few miles which saw him clipping along now at sub 6 minute mile pace to come home to finish 4th Senior Man, brilliant running and he ran the second half of the race just under 2 minutes faster than the first half, the ideal way to run a marathon, finishing like a train. This was a major improvement on his first outing over this distance which he ran in 3 hours 16 minutes. Shane Greene also ran very well when finishing in 3 hours 2 mins 32 secs having gone through halfway in 89 mins 41 secs in 35th place. Siobhan McHugh also put in a brilliant performance in the Marathon when finishing 7th Woman in 3 hours 21 mins 15 sec to win the 3rd over 45 award, brilliant running, Siobhan ran well going through halfway in 97 mins 6 secs. We also had good performances from Noel Gillman who was 103rd in 3 hours 22 mins 46 sec and went through halfway in 99:51, Mark Corcoran who was 155th in 3 hours 32 mins 43 secs and he went through halfway in 104:30, Neil Proven who was 171st overall in 3 hours 36 mins and he reached halfway in 96:42, John Laste seems to have recovered well from his PB in the Manchester Marathon to put in another great performance when finishing in 3 hours 28 mins 54 secs and reaching halfway in 101:33 and Brian Tyrell also wrote new figures for the Marathon when running a PB in 4 hours 4 mins 40 secs, he went through halfway in 115:31.

In the 10K race we also had some very good performances like Michelle Doherty in 42 mins 39 secs and she was 4th woman over 40, Anne Marie Boland also ran very well when finishing in 47:25 as well as Michael Egan in 53 mins 4 secs, Yvonne Arrault in 60:36 and Eimear McMahon in 72:01.

 

Nigel O Flaherty wins Cahir RUN4FUN 4mile event

The 5th promotion of the Morrison BMW sponsored Cahir RUN4Fun 4mile road race, promoted by Clonmel Athletic Club, took place last night in good running conditions. This year’s race nominated Charity was the South Tipp Hospice.

The race started outside Morrison BMW showrooms and right from the start a group of three athletes set the pace led by Nigel O Flaherty (Clonmel AC) and hot on his heels was William O Dwyer (Dundrum AC). Nigel kept a strong pace going and came home a very worthy winner in 22 mins 6 secs and defended his title very well having won last year’s race. Then we had William O Dwyer running well when finishing 2nd in 22 mins 18 secs with Alex Davey of Dundrum 3rd in 23 mins 6 secs. Brian Carroll of Clonmel AC won the over 40 award when finishing in 23 mins 35 secs with Michael O Sullivan of Carrick on Suir 2nd over 40 in 23 mins 49secs. The women’s race was won by Clare Annan of Clonmel AC in 23 mins 39 secs with Linda Grogan of Dundrum AC 2nd in 24 mins 57 secs. Suzanne Shine of Clonmel was 1st over 35 in 58 mins 58 secs with Michelle Doherty also of Clonmel AC 2nd in 27 mins 11 secs.

At the Presentation of the Prizes, Frank Lynch Vice Chairperson of Clonmel AC thanked the Garda, Civil Defence and the many stewards who ensured the whole event was a great success. Gary Morrison of Morrison BMW Cahir also thanked the many people who helped in any way to make the event such a success and in particular all his staff for all their hard work over the past couple of days. He was also delighted to have South Tipp Hospice as the chosen Charity this year.

Then we had the Special draw where for every 12 athletes that crossed the finishing line one of them received a voucher and this was done by having Pre selected finishing positions drawn while the race was in progress. So the prizes were evenly distributed throughout the whole race and everyone had an equal chance of winning. This is the only event in Ireland that distributes the prizes in this way and the prizes varied from 100 Euros to 20 Euros.
