Report from Tom Blackburn of Mooreabbey Milers....Friday Night in Galbally saw a large crowd of runners gathering for the Mooreabbey Milers AC 5 mile road race. This was the second race in the Ballyhoura Active series and the first race in county Limerick. With 198 runners on the night, we were up 60 runners on last years race. There was a great buzz in the village as the race headed out the Tipperary road at 7.30 pm sharp. It was a beautiful evening and everyone was in good form. Local man Stuart Moloney from Mooreabbey Milers AC was an impressive winner in a time of 26.58, The course itself isn’t the fastest but he didn’t have it all his own way being chased hard by Declan Moore from Bilboa AC.

Tea, sandwiches and cakes were provided in the community center after, everyone ate their fill and went home happy after a lovely evening. 

I would Like to thank everyone for supporting us on the night, this was a great start to our series and we hope that you will support the rest of the races in the series. We would like to thank our sponsors and all those who volunteered on the night.
