County Cross Country Championships

Sunday next, 2nd October, is the start of the 2016/2017 cross country season.  The County U/8, U/10, U/12, U/14, U/16 and U/18 juvenile championships take place along with the County Novice Ladies and Men. The venue is Hayes’ Farm, Middlepiece, Two-Mile-Borris and the first race gets underway at 12 noon sharp. We hope that all our juvenile athletes will make an effort to attend and to support each other throughout the day. All those taking part should be at the venue by 11.15am at the latest to walk the course, collect jerseys and numbers and have a warm-up prior to their races.

The club also will have teams in both the novice ladies and men’s events which take place directly after the juvenile programme and it would be a great boost for this group of athletes if people could stay and support them on the day.

Autumn 5k


2016_Results_Autumn 5k

The club held a very successful Autumn 5k today with a total of 110 people racing, running, jogging and walking the Burma Route.  At the head of the field it was a very competitive affair with four athletes setting the pace from the whistle but shortly before the second kilometre John Treacy, Thurles Crokes upped the pace to draw clear.  He maintained his pace for the remainder of the race to cross the line in first place in a time of 16.26.  Garet McGlinchy, Dundrum got the better of Shane Scully, Nenagh Olympic for second in a time of 16.53 compared to 17.06 for Shane. James Maher, Templemore AC finished strongly in fourth in 17.21 followed by the first club man home Stephen Flanagan who clocked 18.12.  Fred Crowley of Thurles Crokes finished 6th in 18.17 just ahead of Keith Butler, Nenagh Olympic in 18.22.  Young Nathan Bowe of the host club finished an excellent 8th in 18.50 closely tracked by another clubman Liam Kelly in 18.58.

A top ten place was the reward for Linda Grogan, Dundrum who claimed the ladies title with a great run in 19.03. Having a superb run for second place was local athlete Lorraine Healy who crossed the line in 19.24 with Ciara Cummins, Nenagh Olympic taking third in 20.12.  Eileen McCullagh, Thurles Crokes returned to racing with a great fourth place in 20.58 with Ali O’Connor, St. Finbarr’s in fifth with a time of 21.07 ahead of club athlete Louise Fogarty in 21.15.  Seventh place went to Linda Keane in 22.05 with another young athlete from the club, Roisin Daly finishing 8th in 22.23.  The top ten in the ladies race were completed by club athlete Brigid Gleeson and Templemore’s Roisin Maher in 22.41 and 22.49 respectively.

This race also saw the club’s Couch to 5k group of ladies and men taking on the 5k having completed the training programme over the past number of weeks.  Everyone who took part did exceptionally well with the likes of Noel Maher, Piercetown finishing in 23.35 to lead the group home in an excellent 45th place.  Helena Loughnane, Gortnahoe finished in 27.05 followed by PJ Ryan in 27.31 and Marian Jones in 27.41.  Amongst the many others to take part for the group were  Mairead Maher, Helena Maher, Mary Creedon, Sarah Everard and Catherine Henderson.  Approximately 20 members took part, some running for the very first time, and all completed the course in less than 34 minutes which is exceptional running from everyone.

Our thanks to all who helped out in any way with the running of the event.  Everyone’s time and effort is appreciated by the club and indeed by those taking part.  See full results above.

Couch to 5k

Training for the Couch to 5k group will take place at the earlier time of 6.45pm on Friday night.  We would be delighted if all participants could make it to the Sportsfield at that time.
