National Road Relay Championships

The Irish Life Health National Road Relay Championships take place on Sunday next in Raheny, Dublin and for the first time the club will have a senior ladies team in action.  The format 1mile x 2 miles x 1 mile will certainly test all the competing teams and our best wishes to the ladies in what is sure to be a very competitive and top class event.

Club Track & Field League

This Thursday night, 19th April, sees the start of the club league.  An invitation was extended to all athletes from 14 years of age and older to participate and it is great to see that we will have 20 athletes compete in four teams of five.  Further rounds take place on Saturday 5th May and Friday 25th May.  The scoring will be based on the International Points scoring table and various sprint and middle distance events will take place over the three rounds along with a team relay.  It promises to be a great spectacle for participants and spectators alike.

Inter-Schools Track & Field Event

Friday 27th April is the day of our Inter-Schools Track & Field event.  Invitations have been extended to eights primary schools in the locality and if other years are anything to go by we will have a big contingent of pupils taking part in sprints, middle distance, long jump and ball-throw.  Urlingford are the current Large Schools champions while Galmoy are the Small Schools champions but no doubt the other six schools will be out to claim these trophies  Anyone with a couple of hours to spare on the day and willing to lend a hand would be most welcome.

Burma Challenge

Wednesday 9th May sees the start of the 15th running of the Burma Challenge.  So many people have walked, jogged or run the event in that time and hopefully this year will be no different with interest already being shown by a number of people.  The 9th sees everyone run the 5k Burma route together, on the 16th May there will be a Team Mile Challenge on the track, the 23rd May is the 5k Handicap night with the 30th May hosting the 5k relay event and finale.  Entry to the complete event is €10 and any further information can be got by contacting John on 086-8403515.  Why not come along and enjoy the event with tea and refreshments served to all each night.

 

Mini Marathon

Our annual mini-marathon will take place on Monday 4th June commencing at 12 noon from the Sportsfield.  We will be hosting a 10k Run and a 5k Walk with entries on the day of the event.  Timing will be provided for the 10k and all entrants will receive a medallion on finishing.  The first three ladies and men in the 10k will receive prizes with an additional prize for new course records.  Refreshments will be served to all afterwards.

Capital Funding

News filtered through during the week that the club were successful in their bid for funding to complete the car-park facility in the Sportsfield.  Tipperary County Council issued in excess of €2 million in funding to projects throughout the County and the club received a grant of €10,000.  This funding together with club funding should see the completion of the car parking area to the rear of the club building and thereby providing a safer facility for our athletes.  Rules and conditions associated with the grant will have to be adhered to before work can commence which we hope will be in the not too distant future.  The club is thankful to the County Council for this grant.

Road Racing

A number of athletes from the club travelled to Killea for their 10mile and 5k event while some travelled to Dublin to take part in the Great Ireland Run which also incorporated the National 10k Road championships.  Congratulations to both Louis Everard and Sharon Cantwell who picked up prizes in the Killea 5k event with both finishing third in their respective categories in times of 19.56 and 23.05.  Also competing over 5k were Martin Kiely (22.15) and Eileen Hackett (31.01).  Over ten miles Cathal Ely posted a time of 1.11.56 with Sharon Kiely running 1.21.01 and Catherine Dunne 1.35.25.  Well done to all.  In Dublin Brian Carroll posted a new personal best over 10k finishing the Great Ireland run in 38.49.  In the Great Ireland 5k Dylan McLoughlin posted a great time of 18.31 to finish 7th overall with father John finishing in 22.28 and mother Sinead finishing in 25.06.  Younger brother Aaron ran in the Junior Great Ireland Run to also cross the line in 7th place in a time of 11.36.  Congratulations to all concerned.

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.
