Paddy Cummins wins 4k

2018 Senior Club News

The 4th race of the O Reilly Pharmacy 4k took place tonight in cold but mainly dry weather and we saw some great performances throughout the race. Once again, the Club would like to thank Barry Horgan for sponsoring this year’s series of races and many athletes who competed in three of the races received their well-earned Umbrellas and which were greatly appreciated by everyone. The Club would also like to thank the Brothers of Charity for the use of their carpark as race Headquarters and the Red Cross for First Aid. The Club also appreciated the great work by our many stewards who despite the cold weather ensured that the whole event was a brilliant success.

The race format tonight was Lucky Dip and the winners were Paddy Cummins 1st in 13 mins 38 secs, Sean McCarthy 25th in 17:16, Niall McCarthy 39th in 17:59, Marian Flaherty 50th in 19:21 and Tom Bourke 69th in 21:56.

Tonight’s race was won by Paddy Cummins of Moycarkey Coolcroo in 13 mins 38 secs, the fastest time for this series of races with Eamon Morrissey of Dundrum 2nd in 14 mins 19 secs and Conor Ryan of Clonmel 3rd in 14 mins 27 secs. The top three women were Ann Marie Boland 20th in 16 mins 33 secs, Ali O Connor 21st in 16:36 and Elaine Horgan 23rd in 17 mins 6 secs.

The winner of the Special Hamper tonight was Justin Walsh, congrats Justin.

Next week’s race is our Charity race and all monies donated will go to the Emma Lacey Trust Fund, a very worthy cause, so spread the word and the more people that walk, jog and run next Wednesday night will mean more funds will be raised for this worthy cause.
