Almost 600 people of all ages turned out in Moyne on Monday June 2nd for the 5th Annual Moyne Mini Marathon. This year’s event was a fundraiser for Trish Kiely Bourke who is currently undergoing treatment and the organisers were overwhelmed by the huge support shown for Trish and her family. The race commenced at 12noon in perfect weather conditions and what a wonderful spectacle it was to see such huge numbers commence the 10km route from Moyne Sportsfield. The race was won by Kevin Moore, Dundrum in a time of 33.23, Danny Smith Ballynonty was 2nd in 33.44 and Colm Turner from Limerick Tri Club was 3rd in 34.44. The first three ladies to cross the line were Dympna Ryan, Dundrum in 38.58, Eileen McCullagh Thurles Crokes was 2nd in 41.54 and Phil Ryan Killenaule was 3rd in 43.55. First home for the host club Moyne AC was Jody Sweeney 13th in 38.45, Richie Daly 27th in 41.56, Patrick Bowe 29th 42.56 and Harry Hogan 38th in 43.41. Well done to all who took part, without you all the hard work and preparation would have been in vain. The organisers wish to say a huge thank you to Moyne AC for allowing this year’s Mini Marathon to be used as a fundraiser for Trish and also for all their hard work and support prior to the event and on the day. We extend a huge thank you to all our sponsors, to those who made very generous monetary donations, to those who donated all the post race refreshments, to the ladies in the kitchen, to all those who helped with registration, finish line, compiling results etc, to those who helped with parking, stewarding and marshalling the route, manned water stations etc and to anyone that helped in any way on the day of the event or in the preparation – your help was much appreciated and did not go unnoticed. We also say a massive thank you to all those who took sponsorship cards for the event and we would ask those who have not yet returned them to please do so over the next few days. Finally we wish Trish all the best and we hope and pray that she will return to full health soon.
