On Thursday evening we had a group of our road athletes taking part in the Streets of Kilkenny 5k. A rapid and tight two lap circuit awaited the athletes. In total 874 athletes crossed the finish line.
First home for Moyne AC was Sharon Cantwell in a great time of 18:48. Sharon was 20th lady across the line. Closely behind Sharon was Patrick Bowe fresh from his fine run at the County Novice Road Championship in Moyne last weekend Patrick finished in a time of 18:57. Next home for Moyne AC was one of the members of the County Novice Ladies second place team, Edel Delaney. Edel finished in a time of 21:21 to place 18th lady over 40. The next group of athletes that raced the 5k were from out Fit 4 Life Group. Martin Kiely led this group home with a great time of 26:30, fresh from his run in Portlaois two weeks ago. Mindy Doyle was next home with a personal best performance of 28.46, knocking 62 seconds off of her PB. Noelle Dempsey was making her competitive debut for Moyne AC on Thursday night and ran a personal best on her first day out. Noelle knocked 3 minutes and 24 seconds off of her time she ran on the final night of the couch to 5k programme to finish in a time of 31.24. Sub 30 is on the way.
