Report from Clonmel AC......Great performances at the Barlo Motor Group race 3

We again had a brilliant entry of 168 athletes on what was a good night for running, cold but dry and it was great to some impressive performances, indeed from week one it is great looking down through the results to see athletes improving at all levels. We will do a report on the performances to date in a later report. As regards the times tonight anyone wearing numbers 1 to 99 should have gone off with the first group and likewise athletes wearing numbers 100 to 199 should have gone off with group Two and Group Three was for all athletes who were wearing numbers 200 plus. I say this because I then deducted 20 seconds off any athlete in Group Two and I took 40 seconds off anyone in Group Three as we had stagger starts. It is up to the athlete to stay in the Group that their number is for.

The race format for tonight's race was again Lucky Dip and the Lucky winners were as follows: Mark Corcoran, Damien O Keeffe, Gerry Burgess, Peter Kiely, Michael O Sullivan, Paul Higgins, Michelle Lonergan, Pat Tobin, Caitriona O Flynn, Bernie Walsh, Yvonne Doheny, Carmel Long and the Lucky winner of the use of a New Car from the Barlo Motor Group was Catherine Delahunty.

Tonight's race was won by Colm Ryan in 14 mins 34 secs with Gareth McGlinchey 2nd in 15 mins 9 secs and Lar Martin 3rd in 15 mins 11 secs. The top three Women finishers were Anne Marie Boland 1st in 16 mins 31 secs, 2nd Kealey Tideswell 16 mins 33 secs and 3rd Linda Grogan 16 mins 38 secs.

Just a reminder that Race 6, the Charity Race, of this year's series, on February 17th, is in aid of SERT (South East Radiotherapy Trust) , a very worthy cause. This service provides free transport for seven patients 260 days of the year to Oncology Treatment at UPMC Hospital, Whitfield, Waterford on a completely voluntary basis. Transport is provided at no cost to the patient and relies on voluntary contribution to cover transport replacement, motor tax, insurance and maintenance. All Administration, including Driving is done on a totally voluntary basis, nobody is paid, so a very worthy cause. So all monies donated and collected at our 4K on Wednesday 17th February will go to this very worthy cause, so spread the word.
