Club Notes Week Ending 17th March 2024

Streets of Portlaois 5k
On Sunday Moyne AC were well represented in the Streets of Portlaois 5k road race. In a high-class field with over 800 runners Dylan McLaughlin was our first athlete over the line. Dylan got his 2024 season up and running finishing in a time of 17:27 to come home in 64th. Brian Carroll was the next Moyne athlete over the line finishing in a great time of 18:57. The lads will be well set for the county novice next weekend in Moyne. Martin Kiely made a return to racing in the green and gold running a great time of 27:42. Mindy Doyle made her competitive debut for the club running an excellent time of 29.48, a PB for Mindy. A special mention must go to Martin and Mindy as they have come through the couch to 5k programme in flying form and enjoying their running. Thanks to Streets of Portlaoise for the great and well organised event.
