From Clonmel AC......The 2nd race of the Clonmel AC 4K series sponsored by the Barlo Motor Group took place in ideal running conditions, dry and no breeze, a major improvement on last week's weather conditions where we had to cancel the event on Health and Safety grounds due to the very bad stormy weather. It was great to see 140 athletes compete and we had some great finishes. The race format was Lucky Dip and the athletes who finished in the Pre Selected finishing positions were as follows: Aidan Cremins 3rd in 14:42, Daniel Kennedy 19th in 16:42, Ivan Barlow 25th in 17:01, Brian Slattery 36th in 17:45, Noel Prendergast 46th in 18:17, John Roche 52nd in 18:36, Tony Duggan 71st in 19:44, Rebecca Cassin 85th in 21:03, Honor Goonan 99th in 22:25, Nicola Guiry 106th in 23:18, Noel Curran 122nd in 24:41, Louise Daly 133rd in 25:31 and Susan Laste 137th in 26:33. 

Last night's results were based on the Chipped times as we had a wave start with athletes going off at different intervals. For instance John Shanahan was the first athlete across the finishing line in 14 mins 19 secs but Michael Ryan who started 18 seconds behind him ran 14 mins 15 secs for the distance. 

The Club would like to thank the Barlo Motor group for sponsoring this year's series and the winner of the car for this week is Noel Curran. The Club would also like to thank the Brothers of Charity for the use of their carpark and the Civil Defence for looking after the First Aid. The Club would also like to thank the many stewards who ensured that the whole event was successfully managed.

The race that was cancelled last week has been re scheduled for Wednesday 25th February. On Wednesday 18th February we will have our 4K charity Run and this year the worthy Charity will be the Irish Pilgrimage Trust and this is a Charitable organisation who take approx 500 children with special needs to Lourdes for a week at Easter, a very worthy cause and well worth supporting on Wednesday 18th February as all monies donated on that night will go to this worthy cause.
The race format for next week will also be the Lucky Dip format and you could be the Lucky owner of a new car from the Barlo Motor Group for a week, all you have to do is come along next Wednesday and participate at your own pace and you will in with a chance of winning that lovely car for a week.
