Report from Dundrum AC.......

Coillte 10k/5k Dundrum
An entry of 245 athletes went to the start line which included 29 athletes in the Junior 5k race down overall on last year but still good for the roasting hot weather conditions of the past few weeks. The hot conditions probably accounted for some of the 10 athletes who failed to finish the 10k and the 1 athlete who failed to complete the Junior race. Even though non finishers are common every year with the two lap race.

Kenyan athlete Freddy Keron Sittuk who competes for Dublin club Raheny Shamrock’s was gone from the whistle at the start of the two lap course and he was well clear as he headed out on the second lap. Kevin Moore from the host club Dundrum put in a great last lap to close down the gap on the African man to one second at the end. International athlete Siobhan O’Doherty from the Borrisokane club was a clear winner of the women’s race for the eleventh time.

Twelve year old Shane Buckley from the Dundrum club was a impressive winner of the Junior 5k race while Thurles Crokes athlete Nuala Fitzgibbon won the girls race.
