Kerry: Results of the Riocht AC 5k in Castleisland - Fri 3rd Sept 2021

A total of 69 runners took part in the second race of three in the Riocht AC 5k Autumn series on Friday 3rd September 2021 in Castleisland, Kerry. 

From An Ríocht AC...


The 2nd race of the Coillte 5k Series was another fine night for running, with 69 runners taking to the start line, and it was a very big night for rising An Riocht star Oisin Murray who won the men's race and broke 16 minutes for the first time with a blistering 15:56 ! He was followed in by Maurice Feehan, Donal Leahy and Donal O Kelly who all broke 17 minutes.

An Riocht's Niamh O'Sullivan won the women's race in 19:05 followed by Sharon Woods (19:20) and Caroline Murphy (20:23) with all 3 improving on their times from last week.

Big mention to the very talented 13 yr old Tiernan Lynch who finished a stunning 11th overall in a time of 18:31, the future is bright for Tiernan! And great to see more young stars in action this week and running well - David Keane, Kieran Keane, Ella Murphy, Jay Reynolds and Chloe Barrett.

It was great to see so many runners improving their times from last week, that's what the series is all about - so take a breather for a week and we'll go again on the 17th September for the final race - see you then! 

Again thanks to our main sponsors Coillte and to Supervalu for providing the water, to Lee Strand for the milk and to for the excellent signs. Finally a big thankyou to all who volunteered or helped in any way, we couldn't do it without you! 

Registration for the final race (Friday 17th Sept) will open again from next week, and remember it's your best 2 times that count towards the prizes.
