From Clonmel AC.... A Big THANK YOU from the Lourdes Pilgrimage Trust
Wednesday 18th February saw the last 4k in this very successful New Years series and keeping with tradition we held our Charity Run on the final night with all donations going to a local charity. This year it was for the Lourdes Pilgrimage Trust who bring sick children to Lourdes at Easter. Thanks to your generosity they raised just under €1000 at the race & want to sincerely thank everyone for their generous donations & for coming out on what they described as a 'miserable' night to support their charity. Indeed 123 runners & walkers embraced the course & had a strong wind to contend with on the Waterford Road but it wasn't enough to deter them!
We'd especially like to thank the volunteers & stewards for their dedication every week, without them this series could not take place. We are indebted to the Brother of Charity for the use of their fine facilities & welcome the sponsorship of this series by Barlo Motor Group, who had many happy runner driving around in style since early January! The introduction of chip timing for this series by Premier Timing Solutions added to the excitement of the series, for many the split lap times went down especially well & the professional prompt results were well received. Thank you again for your support & looking forward to the Morrison BMW 6k Series which is just around the corner....

Kerry...Results of the Tralee Valentines 10 mile race - Sun 15th Feb 2015

Catching up on some results! This 10 mile race was held in Tralee on Sunday the 15th of February and it was I believe the second year of this particular race. A total of 437 people took part which is a good turnout but it was down 30% on the figures for 2014. Why the drop? Perhaps last year had a bit of the novelty factor in that it was a new race or maybe it's just a sign that there are so many races out there to choose from at the moment?

It would be pretty normal for most 10 mile races to have about 40% women. In this one last year, it was 56% and that reduced to 51% this year.

From Clonmel AC.......The 5th race of the Clonmel AC 4k series, sponsored by the Barlo Motor Group took place in ideal conditions for running. Once again we had a very good entry of 122 athletes so far this series of races has attracted 228 athletes. Many of these athletes were competing in this series for the very first time and it was great to see the progress many of them have made over the 5 races to date. We have one more race of this series to go and that is next Wednesday night when the race will be run in aid of the Lourdes Pilgrimage Trust, a very worthy charity that takes approx 500 children with special needs to Lourdes for a week at Easter. So all monies donated at next Wednesday night’s race will go to this very worthy cause. It costs approx 1000 Euros to bring a child on this trip every year, so all monies collected will be deeply appreciated by this Trust.

Back to the race and the first three men were Joey Feery in 14 mins 23 secs, Declan Curley 14 mins 58 secs and Keith O Brien in 14 mins 58 secs. The top three women were Aine Roche 15 mins 52 secs, Siobhan McHugh 16 mins 9 secs and Yvonne O Connor 17 mins 23 secs. The results are based on your Chip time that is the time from when the athlete starts under the gantry to the time that they finished under the gantry. I see a few athletes started down the field at the start and then put in a great effort to pass as many athletes as possible and so it is their net time (Chip Time) that counts. The results also show the split times for each lap and it is rounded up to the nearest second. Once again, it was an ideal night for running and it was great to see many athletes improve on their PBs.

Once again we are very grateful to the Barlo Motor Group for sponsoring this year’s series and the grand prize of driving a new car for a week. We are also very grateful to the Brothers of Charity for the use of their carpark as race headquarters and to all the stewards who ensured that the whole event was a brilliant success.
