Tipperary...Results of the Clonmel AC 6km race - Wed 13th Apr 2016

From Clonmel AC........Race 3 report and all the winners - Great racing in Race 3 of the Morrison BMW Cahir sponsored 6k series
Race 3 of the Morrison BMW Cahir sponsored 6k road race series took place in very good weather conditions tonight and it was brilliant to see 318 athletes compete, a record entry for race 3 of this series. 

We had fantastic entries for this series of races, the Practise race had 254 athletes competing, race 1 had 334 athletes competing, Race 2 had 336 athletes competing and 318 athletes tonight, brilliant and thanks to everyone who made this series of races such a success. Once again the Club is indebted to Morrison BMW Cahir for their very generous sponsorship. 

Competition was very keen throughout all the Divisions and the majority of the final placings were only decided tonight. Indeed great credit must go to all the team Captains for encouraging all their teams to compete and it was just brilliant. In the race itself Emmet McNamara of the Speed Merchants ran very well when winning in 21 mins 7 secs with Kenny Curran 2nd in 21 mins 45 secs and Bernard Feery (South Tipp Physio) 3rd in 21 mins 56 secs. The top three women were Claire Annan (Fantastic Five)1st in 22 mins 36 secs, 2nd Aine Roche (O Gorman’s Bakery) 24 misn 24 sec and 3rd Siobhan McHugh (MSD Team 1) 3rd in 24 mins 47 secs.
