WEEKEND RUNAROUND

As always good luck to everyone running over the weekend and please send in your reports. As this is a long weekend we have lots of events to report on.

Half Marathon Phoenix Park

Good Friday morning at 10am sees the start of the weekend racing with Vincent Connolly doing a half marathon in the Phoenix Park. This is Vincent's first long one since getting his hip done last year and I know that everyone wishes him well. Many will have started their running with Vince in the Beginners Section and I am sure that they especially will wish him well.

Boston Marathon

We have three ladies running in Boston on Monday and likewise I know that everyone wishes them well. They Helen Gilroy, Margaret Jones and Sheila Buckley are in Shannon Airport as I write and we also wish them a safe journey there and back. The girls have prepared really well for this race and are an example to all of dedication and hard work which will pay off on Monday.
On a historical note the last Midleton AC runner we had in Boston in the mid 90s was the great Joe Hourigan and he christened a local hill "Heartbreak Hill" in memory of the occasion as Boston is noted for its hills. Our own race the Midleton 5 (May 1st) is now names the "Joe Hourigan Memorial Five Mile Road Race" in honour and in memory of this always smiling running legend.
Also its forty year since an Irish man Dick Hooper won Boston so the ladies are stepping out on another historic occasion.
Stephen Deveraux Youghal AC who many of you will know from TRInRun shop in Midleton is also running Boston and we wish him the very best also. Steve will be well familiar with Boston having lived there for several years in what he describes himself as "his non running days" Steve is one of the most popular guys on the circuit and he and Rickie have done wonders for local running in recent years. As the yanks say "Way2Go Steve"

Boherbue 4 Mile

This race takes place on Easter Monday and consists of a race from Boherbue to Kiskeam over 4 miles. Entry is in Boherbue where you get a bus back to Kiskeam where the race starts. It has always been a popular race with Midleton athletes and is a nice 4 mile well capable of producing PBs.

Ballynoe East Cork Championships

This takes place next Thur evening Ladies 730 2Km and Men at 8PM ( see previous post) we need as many as possible to run this race.

Ballynoe Next Thursday 24th April

The East Cork Road Championships take place in Ballynoe next week. We want/need as many as possible of our members to run. The ladies race is only 2Km and 3/4 of that is down hill so everyone is well able. The men's race is 5 miles consisting of 4 loops and again everyone is well able. This is always a great night with none of the really huge crowds that we tend to get at other races these days. So please come out and support your club.  For those of you who are wondering where Ballynoe is It is out the Dungourney road just past Leahy's Farm.
Ladies race 7.30 Mens race 8pm.
 Entry 5 Euro
