Tipperary...Results of the Clerihan 5 mile road race - Fri 19th July 2013

A total of 217 people turned out for the Clerihan 5 Mile Road Race in S.Tipperary on Friday evening, the 19th of July 2013.

Race report from Clonmel AC...Michael Harty and Dymphna Ryan win in Clerihan
The inaugural Clerihan 5 Mile road race took place in Mediterranean conditions last Friday night attracting 252 entrants, many from the local community, which was brilliant to see. There was a brilliant atmosphere and buzz in the village for the whole event with the whole community coming out and supporting. 

The race was won by Michael Harty of East Cork AC who went into the lead right from the start and came home a very convincing winner in 25 mins 59 secs. Then we had Brian Murphy of Carrick on Suir 2nd in 26 mins 22 secs with Harry Lupton of Portlaoise 3rd in 27 mins. 

Dymphna Ryan of Dundrum won the Ladies race in 29 mins 58 secs with Angela McCann of Clonmel 2nd in 30 mins 29 secs and Orlaith Moynihan of Clonmel 3rd in 32 mins 45 secs. Dymphna was also the first recipient of the Laura Taylor Memorial Shield, presented to her by Donna Nagle, of Clonmel A C, to the first women finisher from a County Tipperary Club, in honour of Laura Taylor who died tragically last year. Dymphna was also presented with a Special framed photo of Camelot signed by Aidan and Joseph O Brien of Ballydoyle where Laura worked for many years.

This was a great community effort and the Club would like to thank everyone who helped to make this event such a success. The Post Race refreshments were greatly appreciated by everyone and the two water stations on the course were also very much appreciated by everyone.
