Munster U/12-U/19 Track & Field Championships – Day 2 & 3

Best of luck to our athletes who will travel to Castleisland on Saturday and Sunday next for Days 2 and 3 of the Munster Track & Field championships. 

Munster Junior, U/23, Senior & Masters Track & Field Championships

Templemore was again the venue on Sunday for the staging of the Munster Junior, U/23, Senior and Masters’ Track & Field Championships where thirteen athletes represented the club in the various competitions.  Provisional results are to hand with the athletes bringing home nine Munster individual medals and one set of relay medals.  Dylan McLoughlin won the Junior 1,500mts while Brigid Gleeson finished second in the O/45 800mts.  Sharon Cantwell, Liz Power and Katie Bergin also collected silver medals in the senior 1,500mts, O/55 100mts and 200mts and Junior 100mts and 200mts respectively and a third place went to Ray Power in the O/55 400mts.  To cap a fine day for the club the Master Ladies O/35 relay team finished third in their event with Ber Spillane, Brigid Gleeson, Michelle Percy and Liz Power the quartet.  Other good results came from Aisling Dwyer, Aisling Maher, Lorraine Healy and Ber Spillane while the Junior Ladies Relay team were unfortunate in their event as Rachel Butler, Katie Bergin, Aisling Dwyer and Jessie Newman failed to get the baton around the track.  While bitterly disappointed they will have another chance of glory next week as they compete in the U/18 competition in Castleisland.  A further update of the results will be forthcoming once official results are posted. 

Munster U/12-U/19 Track & Field Championships

Saturday last saw four athletes from the club participate in the Munster U/12-U/19 Track & Field Championships and though no podium finishes came their way, they all performed excellently against some very strong opposition.  Alana Spillane and Bill Cussen competed in the U/12 600mts events with Saoirse Doran competing in the U/13 600m and Katie Bergin the Girls U/18 Long Jump.  Well done to each of the athletes involved

2019 Games

It is all systems go now for our 2019 Track & Field Games which takes place on July 10 at 6.30pm.  Following on from last year’s successful anniversary games the club are once again promoting a gala night of track and field athletics.  Preparations are ongoing and interest is gathering for the event.  Flyers have been making the rounds of the clubs around the Country and features are on our Facebook page and club website.  Our two main headline races will be an attempt on the sub 4-minute mile for the men and sub 2.05-minute 800mts for ladies which were very nearly reached last year.  The programme also consists of 200mts and 400mts races with additional mile and 800mts events along with long jump and weight for distance.  Entries have been submitted for some of these races and once the required numbers have been reached, we will be unable to accept further entries so don’t lose out.  Contact Martin on 087-2681524 or John on 086-8403515 or e-mail hello@moyneathleticclub.com for further details. 

Mini Marathon

Mini Marathon

A special word of thanks to all who supported the club in our recent 10k and 5k run/walk.  We had increased numbers this year which is always encouraging while the weather was also kind to us on the day, though a bit breezy.  To all our volunteers who worked so hard to make it a success, a sincere thank you.  Without your help which is always given in a voluntary capacity we would be unable to run the event – the number of supportive messages afterwards showed the work you did certainly helped everyone to enjoy the occasion. 

Road Races

Our athletes have been out and about in the past couple of weeks at various road races around the County, with some individual success coming their way.  Though we are thin on the ground at this level it is great to see the athletes participating in these events and importantly enjoying their running whilst also achieving personal bests along the way.  Keep the good work up. 

End of Training

Training for all juveniles has now finished for the summer months and we hope that they will all have a wonderful summer.  Our thanks to all who competed with the club throughout the year bringing much glory to the parish and beyond and we hope to see you all back again later in the year.  It is planned that training will resume in August in preparation for the cross-country season and a text will be sent out to all parents at that time.
