Annual Moyne AC Mini Marathon

The Annual Moyne AC Mini-Marathon will take place this year on Monday, the 4th of June. There will both a 5k walk and 10k road race. This is a popular event and this year is slightly different to most years as the event will not take place the same day as the Women’s Mini-Marathon in Dublin. Volunteers will be required for the smooth running of the event so we ask those available to help out to come down on the day.

The league is based on teams of 5, with four scoring members each night. All athletes who are interested in taking part must be over 14. We ask that athletes can commit to at least two of the events if they are interested in taking part. Athletes should submit two events that they would be interested in competing in and a program for each night will be announced in the upcoming weeks. A relay will take place each night after individual events.

Novice ‘B’ Road Championship, Ballingarry

 

The Novice ‘B’ County Championships took place in Ballingarry on Sunday. The ladies ran 3km and the men ran 6k with excellent running conditions. And what an excellent day for the club it was! Stephen Flanagan was crowned county champion over the 6k course in a time of 20 minutes 53 seconds. This completes the double for Stephen, who won the Novice ‘B’ County Cross-Country this autumn.  This terrific performance led the Moyne AC men to silver in the men’s team competition. Brian Carroll and Louis Everard were the second and third scorers on this team, finishing in 9th and 16th respectively.  Patrick Bowe had a good run placing in 23rd place in a time of 24minutes 12 seconds with Ray Power finished 35th in a time of 29 minutes 22 seconds.

 

The women also had an impressive day out, with Sharon Kiely, Sharon Cantwell and Liz Power finishing in the Bronze medal position. Sharon K led the girls home in 9th position, followed closely by Sharon Cantwell (who was recovering from a flu) in 10th. Liz Power finished in 12th position. Well done to all involved. Such a great achievement for the club to medal in both the women and mens competition.

 

European Masters Athletic Championships Indoors

Congratulations to our own Kate Harrison who represented Ireland in the recent European Masters Championships Indoors. Kate represented Ireland in both the 200m and the 4x200m, alongside teammates Sinead O’Regan, Annette Durkan and Maria Dunne.

Kate’s first event was the 200m where there were two Irish representatives. Kate finished 5th in the heat on Thursday and placed 18th overall with a performance matching her national performance two weeks previous. Following from this, Kate ran in the 4x200m on Saturday. Kate and her team performed well to finish in 5th place overall.  Congratulations Kate, such a wonderful experience to have international championship experience.

Also worth a mention was Simon Everard’s performance in the 4x200m. A former Moyne AC. athlete, Simon now runs for Crusaders AC. in Dublin. Simon was part of the Irish 4x200m relay team who claimed the bronze medal at the championships. Well done Simon.
