Evan Fitzgerald wins Lombardstown 5 mile in new course record

The Lombardstown 5 Mile took place outside Mallow on Thursday evening 25th of August. On a glorious evening for running, Evan Fitzgerald took on Niall Shanahan from An Bru AC  and Paul Moloney Mallow AC in the final km after they had successfully broken clear of the chasing pack in the opening mile of an undulating course. In the uphill finish, Evan prevailed with a superior finish to win in a new course record of 25 mins 18 secs, bettering the old record of 26 mins 23 secs set in 2019. This was another terrific performance by Evan and also emphases his recent good form in the Rebel county.
