From Clonmel AC......The 5th race of the 4k Series took place in cold but dry conditions and it was brilliant to see such a large entry and especially so as it was for a very worthy cause - My Canine Companion Autism Services. The format was Lucky Dip based on pre selected finishing positions and the lucky winners were Aine Roche, Vincent McHugh, Sheena Mullins, Ann Marie Looby, Nicola O Gorman, Josephine Brett and Dearbhla O Keeffe. We used the wave start where the first group went off at zero seconds, the Green numbers went off at 20 seconds, the White numbers went off at 40 seconds and the Orange numbers went off at 60 seconds. The results show the athletes actual finishing time having deducted their wave time, be it zero, -20, -40 or -60 seconds, depending on what colour number the athlete was wearing.
The 1st 3 men tonight were Jimmy Boland in 14 mins 3 secs, Shane Mullaney in 14mins 16 secs and Joey Feery in 14 mins 36 secs. The 1st 3 Women were Aine Roche 16 mins 33 secs, Yvonne O Connor in 17 mins 22 secs and Catherine Rice 17 mins 32 secs.
We will hold our last 4k next Wednesday night, December 10th, as a result of having to cancel the race on 26th November due to Road works. So come along and set a PB for your final 4k of 2014. This series of races has been a fantastic success and the Club would like to thank the Brothers of Charity, the Civil Defence and all our stewards and officials for ensuring each night was a brilliant success, such help is indeed necessary in order to run an event safely.
