Report from Clonmel AC......The first race saw the start of the eagerly awaited Barlo Motor group 4K series. Conditions were very good for running - dry and cold. The start was delayed a while due to the huge numbers that entered on the night...170 in total, brilliant to see them all running so well. Well done to all our stewards who ensured that the route was safe for all participants and thanks to the Civil Defence for looking at the First Aid. The Club would also like to thank the Brothers of Charity for the use of their car park as the Race Headquarters.

The race format was lucky dip where athletes who finished in Pre determined positions were the Luck winners. Tonight's winners were Brian Looram 7th in 16 mins 1 sec, Vincent McHugh 23rd in 17 mins 22 secs, Robert Dower 34th in 17 mins 49 secs, Jane English 57th in 19 mins 13 secs, Brendan O Keeffe 64th in 19 mins 29 secs, Helen Linnane 75th in 19 mins 58 secs, Mellissa McCarthy was the Lucky athlete who won the use of a New Car from Barlo Motor Group when finishing 89th in 20 mins 54 secs, Maureen Kelly 97th in 21 mins 19secs, Marie Laste 113th in 23 mins 2 secs, Elaine Begley 125th in 24 mins 14 secs, David O Mahoney 137th in 24 mins 55 secs and Tina Whelan 158th in 26 mins 59 secs.

The top three men were martin Keane in 15 mins 7 secs, 2nd Keith O Brien 15 mins 14 secs and 3rd Donal Keane in 15 mins 1 5secs. The top three women were Clare Annan 15 mins 16 secs, 2nd Ann Marie Boland 16 mins 56 secs and 3rd Angela Walsh 17 mins 13 secs.

Tonight's race was the launch of the Club's 500K team Challenge sponsored by The South Tipp Physio and it was great to see team members competing and clocking up their Kms already. It is worth noting that anyone who runs in this series of races and any other races before the end of February and who joins a team before the end of February will have these kms allotted to their total, so keep on running and start thinking about organising teams. We will also help athletes to form teams if they submit their names but the real fun in this Challenge to form a team among your friends and work mates and the banter throughout the year will be great.

Week 1 car winner in our 4k series Melissa McCarthy collecting a Hyundai Tucson from Paul Lyttleton of Barlo Motor Group. Happy driving Melissa!
