Race report from Carrick Road Runners...O' Neill Pharmacy Tom Jordan Memorial Portlaw 5-miles
The second race of the 2014 Three Counties Challenge saw 170 runners line up for the O' Neill Pharmacy Tom Jordan Memorial 5-mile road race in Portlaw, County Waterford on Friday evening last. This was the sixth running of this very popular race and the second year in which it has formed part of the five-race series organised by Carrick-on-Suir AC. The forecast heavy rain did not materialise and runners enjoyed very good conditions over the new race route.
The race was started by West Waterford AC's Joe Gough, who has won numerous European Masters' titles and two World silver medals as well as holding the world O/60 record for 800m. Not only did Joe start the race but he also competed, finishing in twelfth place overall and winning the O/60 first prize.
Victory in this year's men's race went to Noel Murphy (Waterford AC) in 26:44.Noel saw off the challenge of Carrick-on-Suir native and Crusaders AC runner, Alban Coghlan who was runner-up in a time of 26:55 with Brian Swaby (Waterford AC) taking third in 27:15. First finisher from Carrick AC was Pat O' Sullivan in fourth place overall and first in the O/45 category.
The ladies' race was won by Clonmel AC runner, Angela McCann, fresh from her second-place finish at the Limerick City Marathon over the Bank Holiday . Angela finished in 30:58 with Sally Forristal (St. Josephs AC) in second and Orla Power in third. First lady finisher from Carrick AC was Emer O' Brien (37:04).
Carrick AC would like to thank all who helped make this year's event such a great success. Thanks to O' Neill Pharmacy, Portlaw for the generous race sponsorship and to Alan Treacy of Outfiel Sports, Carrick-on-Suir for the continued overall series sponsorship.
The Portlaw Red Cross team once again pulled out all the stops with their superb race organisation. It has been through the dedication and hard work of Brian Nugent and his Red Cross colleagues that the race has become so well-established on the race calendar.
A big thank-you to all of the race stewards who ensured the safety of all runners and to all who helped with race registration, timing, results and post-race refreshments at the Forge Bar.
The series moves back to County Tipperary next for the 'Deadman's 5' in Carrick-on-Suir on Friday, June 6th at 7:30pm.
