WEEKEND RUNAROUND

There are lots of races this weekend so we wish everyone running the very best of luck and don't forget there is an important race next Thursday evening so please keep spreading the word.

The Three Amigos

Sunday sees the Limerick Marathon and we have at least three running there in their first marathon and we wish them the very best. The Three Amigos are Paula O'Sullivan, Margaret Mulcahy and Helen Sheehan have been hard at work for over six months and I have watched them every Saturday morning gradually increase the mileage from six to twenty one plus and now their big day is at hand. So girls all the club wish ye the very best on what we know will be an amazing and successful adventure for ye.

The very best of luck also to Morgan O'Regan who will be doing the Half in Limerick. Morgan who has been running great of late will hopefully have another PB there.

East Cork Championships Ballynoe
A Night Of Medals and PBs
Ladies GOLD Men Bronze

Fantastic results once again for Midleton AC in Ballynoe on Thursday evening in the East Cork Championships where Midleton Ladies took Gold team prize and our men's team took the Bronze.
It was a great occasion to see so  many Midleton vests out there  and your club is proud of each and every one of you.Our ladies winning team consisted of Eileen Leahy, Esther Murphy and Louise Barry winning her first championship medal. This was also the first occasion that the ladies had to run 3Km and all had fine runs.
Our men’s team took Bronze and were narrowly beaten by only two points. The team consisted of David Moynihan, Paul Spiteri, Edwin Cashman and Eugene McCarthy. David and Edwin getting  their first championship medals. There was fine running from our whole crew on what was a bitterly cold evening with someone suggesting that  the supporters also deserved medals. As always the whole event was very well organised and the afters superb.
