Tipperary...Results of the Clonmel 6k race - Wed 23rd Mar 2016

A large crowd of 254 runners turned out for the race in the Clonmel Athletic Club 6K Series on Wed 23rd of March 2016. This was a practice run for the other races in the series in that runners were allowed to wear watches for this one. For the remaining four races, participants will have to guess their finish time and run without watches or phones.

Report from Clonmel AC....Great start to the Morrison BMW Cahir 6K Road Race Series
The first race of the Morrison BMW Cahir 6K road race series took place in ideal running conditions and it was great to see 254 athletes competing, just short of the record of 266 competitors set in 2014. Looking down through the entries, there are many athletes who are not on teams. If they want to go on a team they can contact Niall at niallfosullivan1 AT eircom DOT net and we will put them on teams for the 6k series. The closing date for teams and individuals has been extended to Sunday 27th March. Just send in the name of the team and the names of the team members and payment can be made on race night. The Race Headquarters for the 6K series is Colaiste Cheitinn, the Mall. Teams can collect their numbers here when they come to register their predicted time for the distance each night.

Tonight's race was won by Nigel O Flaherty in 21 mins 44 secs, 2nd was Joey Feery in 21 mins 55 secs, 3rd was Jimmy Boland in 22 mins 23 secs, 4th was Conor Fleming in 22 mins 43 secs, 5th was Lar Martin in 23 mins 3 secs and 6th was Gareth McGlinchey in 23 mins 8 secs.
