MENS AND WOMENS COURSE RECORDS SMASHED AT QUANTUM LIFE DUNGARVAN 10.
The 20th Annual Quantum life Dungarvan 10 mile hosted by West Waterford Athletic Club saw a record turn out of 1050 finishers in today’s race. Held in cold but dry conditions, the race was got under way by Villierstowns favourite son John Treacy who also completed the course himself. Conditions were ideal and the proof of this came in the way of both course records falling.
In the Men’s race, victory went to Latvian Mareks Floroseks in a time of 49.26. Indeed, the second finisher was also inside that old record when Clonliffe Harriers Sergiu Ciobanu clocked 49.49, third was Sandis Bralitis of West Waterford AC who previously held the course record of 50.08. His time today was 51.15.
In the Ladies race it was gun to tape victory for Siobhan O’ Doherty of Borrisokane AC with a splendid time of 56.28. She finished 22nd overall in the race. Angela McCann of Clonmel AC broke the 60 minute mark for the very first time with a splendid 59.50 to finish 2nd and Kilmore AC's Jackie Cart was 3rd in 61.33.
JOHN TREACY CLUB CHALLENGE.
SUCCESS FOR WEST WATERFORD AC MEN AND WATERFORD AC LADIES.
In the inaugural John Treacy club challenge which was held in conjunction with the Quantum Life Dungarvan 10, we saw a great battle for the team challenge cups with all runners counting. It was based on the accumulative score of the top 3 runners in each team.
CORRECTION : In the Ladies team event, it was a much closer affair with victory going to Eagle AC with 3:17:18. In second place were Waterford AC with 3.21 .21 and St Finbarrs AC were 3rd with 3.22.56.
Olympic Silver Medalist John Treacy was on hand to present the winners with the perpetual cups and beautiful crystal mementos for each team member.
