Ballycotton 5 Mile

Another Great Night For Midleton AC




 
                                                                 It certainly was a night to remember. The atmosphere in the hall after was electric. It was the biggest crowd ever there with five hundred and seventy three runners. What started with a disappointing night for the club with our two leading members out injured. Karen Grant who was coming first in the overall series and Paul Spiteri who was our leading man also out injured. Hopefully guys ye will both be recovered soon and back running.

Meanwhile Helen Gilroy helped make up for any disappointment we felt by coming a fantastic second in the overall series with another great run especially considering she is just back from injury. Also young Eileen Leahy continued to show her class by coming first Jnr. Overall and taking 1st again in tonight’s race.

Other prize winners tonight were Margaret Jones 5th, Helen Gilroy 2nd O/45 , Marie Gillman 1st O/50 and Margaret Barry 1st O/60.

Captain Noel O'Regan led the men's crew home in a time of 30.12 closely followed by young Ethan Hayes with four seconds and over twenty years between them. Great running lads.

 





 
Lots of our members qualified for the very special T shirts awarded to the Top 30 ladies and the top 50 men in the overall series. These included Helen Gilroy, Margaret Jones , Vicky Cleary 8th overall with a brilliant run tonight knocking over a minute off her PB, Louise Barry a great 17th and Rayleen Dolphin kept up the great form she has been having all Summer Whilst  Anne Marie Perry 28th was back collecting another one for her growing collection. The cheer of the night and to the delight of everyone in the hall Colette Barry got the 30th and final T shirt.

Our men also did very well in the T shirts with Eugene McCarthy having another great run after being unwell all week, Also Sean O’Sullivan. Fergal O’Meara, John Dunphy and again to the absolute delight of the whole hall Mike Cremin got the 50th T shirt by a margin of three seconds.I am sure the cheer from his supporters could be heard in Midleton.

Huge credit must go to John Walsh and Ballycotton Running Promotions for the organisation of this fantastic series. This was the twenty eight running of the race and it continues to improve every year. There is definitely no better value to be had on the racing circuit than this series.
