Waterford...Results of the Clashmore 5 - Fri 28 May 2010

The Ger Wyley Sports Summer Series 2010 resumed on Friday, with the fourth race at Clashmore.

Joe Salmon presents overall winner Sandis Bralitis West Waterford AC with his prize.

Pauline Lambe who set a new course record at the Old Still Bar 5 mile road race last Friday evening is pictured receiving her prize and course record bonus check from Joe Salmon race sponsor.

A great evening was had by all 171 runners who finished this year's Clashmore 5 road race, sponsored by the Old Still Bar.
Runners conditions were thankfully cooler than last week's Portlaw 5 race.
I felt it was nice to be running on roads lined with trees.
The first mile was pretty easy. From 1 to just after 3 was a slow, continuous rise, getting rather steep around the 3 mile mark. Once we reached the peak at the 3.25 mile mark, the road widened, the surface was much better, and it was all downhill to the end.
My Garmin indicates the peak was about 400 feet, which to put into perspective, is about two-thirds the rise in the Dungarvan Marine Climb 6.

The roads were well supervised, with very little traffic, until right at the end, when various tractors, trailers, combined-harvesters, and other farming machines I just couldn't describe, came from all directions.
It may help if organizers could clear parked cars on the main street from the bridge towards the old church ?

Whilst waiting for the results to be compiled, runners got to watch the end of Republic of Ireland vs. Algeria, and refreshments at the Old Still Bar.

A new Ladies course record was set by Pauline Lambe of Tullamore Harriers in a time of 29:45 -- an improvement of 22 seconds on the record she set last year.

The full results are now up on the West Waterford AC site.
