Report from Clonmel AC... Brilliant night’s racing again
The 2nd race of the Morrison BMW Cahir sponsored 6k road race series took place tonight in ideal summer like conditions, conditions that saw 328 athletes compete over this very familiar route. This was a brilliant entry and well done to all the Team Captains for getting so many athletes out to compete. Indeed it is a feature of this year’s series that the numbers have remained very constant. Such being the situation and the fantastic response we have got, that we have decided that for race 3 only, we will reward a team in each Division that records the lowest number of points and who finishes outside the top three of that Division, an Award, so all the teams in each Division have a opportunity to win such an Award. Everyone will have ran this route at least two times so everyone will have a fair idea of what time they can predict for the 3rd race. 

Back to the race and here we had a very good race with both Michael J Ryan and Nigel O Flaherty (Clonmel Premier Physiotherapy) finishing in same time of 21 misn 4 secs, with Michael getting the verdict on the line. Joey Feery (Lifestyle Sports) was 3rd in 21 mins 17 secs. The top three women were Claire Annan 23 mins 15 secs, Dymphna Ryan (The 5 Counties) 2nd in 23 mins 38 secs and Siobhain McHugh (MSD) 3rd in 24 mins 9 secs. In the team competitions it is very competitive in all seven Divisions, which is brilliant and Team Captains are reminded to get all their athletes out competing on the 3rd night as it is all to run for, nothing won yet. The Club would like to thank Noel Lonergan for all his help at the Vocational School, to the Garda and the Civil Defence as well as our many stewards for all their help in ensuring a very successful event. 

The 4th race on Wednesday 22nd April will be a Lucky Dip format. In this race athletes can wear the watches and prizes will be awarded to athletes who finish in pre selected finishing positions. Then later that night the Presentation of Prizes will take place in Mulcahy’s Gladstone Street Clonmel from 9.30pm onwards with food served at 9pm.
