Senior Section News
Ballycotton On The Radar

With just under four weeks to go the Ballycotton ‘10’ on March 21st those who have entered this year’s event are now very much gearing their training towards the big day. Anticipation is beginning to build with the word ‘Ballycotton’ being heard frequently at training each week.

It’s now the time when runners are considering the ‘trial run’ around the famous course, an idea that has become a ritual for many people in recent years. Certainly for those running the race for the first time it is something to seriously consider. In the next few weeks there will hopefully be a number of different groups organised within the club. This year with the advent of the new blog and the email service it should be easy to stay in touch, so if you or your friends are planning such a venture let us know and we will spread the word.

Neilus Aherne

Our own club member Neilus Aherne, Sports/Holistic Therapist is the man to contact for any advice on injury prevention and treatment over the next few weeks. In the countdown to Ballycotton, it’s important to have the legs in tip top shape - Neilius may be contacted on 086-8438355 for appointment and advice.

Before and after the red letter day on March 21, we have plenty of other races to enjoy as spring progresses and we all look forward to the extra hours of day light to assist training flexibility.

On Sunday there was a gathering of 280, somewhat smaller than expected for the ESB 5K in Mahon. No great surprise to see our club very well represented with plenty of excellent times recorded.

Congratulations to Neilus Aherne top man Over 50, Donal Broderick 2nd over 40, Joan McCarthy 3rd Over 50 and Kathleen O’Connell 3rd Over 55. Well done also to our runners who collected prizes as part of teams. The Midleton UDC team were third home in grade A of the mens whilst the newly formed Flexible Connectors team topped grade C.

The full results will be on the BHAA web site during the week. As usual we will also send a copy to all e mail contacts.

Cross Country

Well done to Joan Mc Carthy who formed part of the winning ladies winning team in the Bank Of Ireland All Ireland cross country held on UCC Farm on Sat 20th Feb.. Joans superb run in the final lap earned her team victory by a single point and she herself finished 5TH overall.

Carrigaline ‘5’

Next up after this week’s concluding East Cork 3K race on Tuesday is the 22nd running of the Tommy Ryan Memorial Race in Carrigaline on Sunday morning next February 28. It’s the usual 11am start for this race which has the reputation of a providing a tough test due to it’s regular climbs. It is an ‘up an down’ 5 miler, but a great fixture to take in as part of Ballycotton preparations. Race HQ is the local Community Centre in Carrigaline, where entries will be taken from 9.30am and refreshments will be served afterwards. For first timers travelling to the race – take the by pass on the approach to the town which points you in the direction of the Crosshaven Road. The Community Centre is only a short distance away on the road which runs parallel to the Main Street.

For anybody wishing to travel east rather than west there is also a 10K race in Dungarvan at the same time on Sunday morning next organised by West Waterford AC.

Janssen 4 Miler

On Sunday week, March 7th the Janssen ‘4’ Mile Race appears on the fixture list for the first time. This is another BHAA event and it will be familiar ground for anyone who covered the same distance in the FMC race just last month. Again a very large turn out is expected for the 11am start. Mark Murphy at Janssen -086-1713786 is dealing with all enquiries regarding this inaugural event.

Paddy Desmond Memorial

Jimmy Murray and the team at Rising Sun AC are again anxious to highlight the annual Paddy Desmond Memorial ‘4’ Mile Race, which was very well supported by our club last year. As then it will be an 11am start again this year in Ballinhassig on St Patrick’s Day.

Bantry ’10’

It was a bit like ‘Beauty and The Beast’ when the Bantry ‘10’ took to the road for the first time on St Valentine’s Day. The beautiful scenery was of the picture postcard variety but the severity of the course left almost everybody reflecting on whether or not they had run the toughest ‘10’ in the land.

All credit to our trio of athletes who made the long journey and enjoyed the scenery, the sunshine and the sandwiches.

Donal Broderick approaching peak form was 17th overall in a line up which numbered in excess of 200. Fergal O’Meara, who is accelerating his Paris Marathon plans had another fine run, whilst Denis Kelleher also made it three ‘10’ mile races on successive Sundays as he continues to measure his comeback after injury. – Well done guys!

Action Galore Makes February A Busy Month

After the famine in January has come a feast in February with races galore across the county and plenty more to follow as the countdown continues to Ballycotton on March 21.

The last two Sundays have been dominated by the beginning of the John Buckley Sports sponsored Munster ’10’ Mile Classic Series with the events in Dungarvan and Mallow attracting a very strong Midleton AC entry.

Dungarvan ‘10’

First to the sunshine on the last day of winter in the Deise County where another great show was put on by the host club as their numbers soared to almost 1,000 runners. Just a minor alteration to the course of twelve months ago, meant many in the Midleton singlet were familiar with the Waterford roads, but for those who journeyed for the first time the lasting memory was very much a positive experience.

Some of our competitors were literally hopping off the road. Noel O’Regan’s 59:51 saw only 43 runners cross the tape ahead of him, whilst behind marathon bound Shane Cooney 1:02:00 and the reigning ‘male athlete of the year’ Neilus Aherne 1:02:02 were also in inspiring form. Donal Broderick’s 1:03:32 suggested the Ladysbrige man is very much in form with more big runs likely to follow. Behind this impressive quartet, John Cashman, Sean O’Sullivan and leading lady Michelle Nolan, who clocked a great personal best, all broke the 65 minute barrier.

There was also a great debut over the distance by Emmet Hennessy who hit the 65 mark on the nose whilst both Adam Duchnicz and Alan Kelly were in close company as they came home impressively in just over 68 minutes.

Amongst our other competitors who recorded good runs on the day were Michael Murphy, Trevor Mahoney,, Breda Cahill (our second lady – 1:13:32), Sally Drennan, Caroline Geary, Sandra Bohan and an outstanding debut over the distance by Claire Fitzgerald. The full list of results is available on West Waterford AC web site
. Apologises for not outlining all results individually, but with such a wide spread of runners from our club now taking part, it is impossible to accurately recognise personal best times etc. At present the membership list is also just being completed.
(Please don’t be shy to keep me in touch with your progress)
In conclusion a collective word of congratulations is due to all completed the first 10 miler of the new decade.

Mallow ‘10’

So to Mallow and a week down the road the arrival of Spring coincided with a rise in temperature. Conditions overall were quite good for the race except for the southerly breeze which certainly became a factor once the left hand turn was negotiated after the six mile mark.

Mind you this breeze did little to halt a few of the club’s pace setters and in particular Noel O’Regan who chopped 46 seconds off his Dungarvan time, on a day when quite a few runners fell back a little on their previous week’s showing. Neilus Aherne had another excellent run and in the process came home with the top accolade in the Over 50 category, whilst Michelle Nolan was top Over 35 and also a superb 5th overall to complete a great eight days.

Margaret Barry again proved tops in her category with junior athlete Philip O’Neill bringing another prize to Midleton, finishing in third position. Danny McCarthy, Vincent Connolly, Brian Healy and Anne Marie Perry were amongst the experienced Midleton contingent that enjoyed steady runs.
Meantime our relative newcomers continue to make great progress with some of them running the distance for the first time in recent weeks.
Deidere Aherne, Claire Fitzgerald, Ciara Coughlan, Anne McCarthy, Mel Manning and debut man Philip Mullane all turned in creditable displays. Again with such a big number of participants from the club (33) it is impossible check pb’s etc – however the full list of all Midleton AC finishers is now listed on the club blog -

East Cork 3K

Last week was the penultimate chapter in the East Cork AC 3K story for the winter. It will be remembered as the Series which lost a race due to the weather, but it also means that 4 is now the magic number to reach if you want to collect that souvineer long sleeve tee-shirt. The next race on Tuesday 23rd gives a final chance to reach that target.

As for last week’s race, Donal Broderick, Declan O’Connell and Emmet Hennessy were particularly spritely beating the 11 minute barrier whilst our distinguished coach Edmond O’Sullivan gave us an example of his talents with an eye catching 11:18. Tom Cody, Billy O’Sullivan and Conor McGrath were also inside the 12 minute barrier. Good to see some of our ladies such as Margaret Sinclair, Christine Murphy, Nora Savage, Margaret Twohig and Marie McGrath record good runs in this hugely enjoyable Winter Series. - A special word of congratulations to Joan Hough who ran 12:28 on the night, having earlier been named on the Cork team for the National Masters Cross Country Championships in Roscommon on February 21.

Also looking ahead to a major fixture is Brian Healy who warmed up for his trip to the Barcelona Half Marathon with action in the 3K Series and the ‘10’ milers. Also looking on the European stage are Fergal O’Meara and Kevin Morrisson who mixed the 3K and 10 mile distance in preparation for the Paris Marathon.

New Race in Bantry

Yet another new addition to the ‘10’ mile fixture list is next Sunday’s race in Bantry.
The following press release has been issued by the organisers.

- Preparations for the “Valley Ring "10 mile road race on Sunday February 14th in Bantry are well under way. This is the first road race in West Cork this year so organisers are encouraging locals and anyone with family connections to The Mealagh to participate as well as casual and club runners to help put the region on the running map. The race is aiming to promote physical activity as a way of getting fit, de-stressing, experiencing the feel good factor and meeting new people. Post race gatherings are interesting as everyone has a story to tell and great friendships are formed as a result. The course is takes in some of the most scenic parts of West Cork.
Come along please and support us by participating. You can walk, jog or run on the day!

On-line registration is now open on: Only €10. Race HQ is in Mealagh Community Hall, 3 miles outside of Bantry. There will be plenty of signposting so you cannot miss the event. There will be water stations organised by the local community and refreshments after the race.

Your support would be greatly appreciated – further details email

Cross Country

Next Sunday also sees the Cork BHAA host their annual Cross Country fixture. Race time here is also 11am and the action will take place in Beaumont, near Blackrock.

A week further down the road the BHAA action switches back to the road when the popular ESB 5K will take place in Mahon. The local Community Centre is again the race base with the usual 11am starting time. Remember if you have not already registered on a BHAA team do so in advance in the race and who knows you could come home with either a team or individual prize.

Eagle ‘5’ Miler

The Eagle AC Tommy Ryan Memorial ‘5’ Mile Race in Carrigaline on Sunday February 28th rounds off a busy month of action. There should again be a very big entry for this race which also has an 11am start. The host club have also confirmed that the Cheetah Run at Fota Wildlife Park will this year take place on Thursday May 20th.

Ballycotton Meal

- A reminder that Midleton AC will again be organising a post Ballycotton ‘10’ meal on the evening of the big race. We will have further details in the near future of what is an annual occasion for reflections and inquests.

New Dates/New Venues/New Races

2010 is probably going to set a new record for the number of races held in the county and further afield. We can confirm that the BHAA have the Janssen ‘4’ in Little Island on March 7 added to their diary and the AIB 5K in Macroom on July 1st. We also know now that the Great Island ‘10’ in Cobh on Sunday April 18 is gathering momentum and there is a definite Sunday fixture in Dunmanway in June for a 10K race. Killarney could host a new 15 miler to add to their growing list of races, whilst word locally is that we could a new ‘4’ miler in Carrigtwohill to replace the Stryker ‘4’ in mid summer. Rumour has it that we might also see a race in the Aghada parish in the not to distant future.

What we can confirm as fact is that Ballintotis will host the East Cork AC ‘4’ Miler on Thursday April 22nd. This traditional opening evening fixture of the calendar has been held in Castlemartyr for the last number of years. The race will now become a fund raiser for Ballintotis Community Council and in particular the proposed new Community Centre. A scenic location is guaranteed with just limited use of the Main N25 Road adjacent to Loughaderra Lake. - More details to follow soon.

We also believe some significant changes are in the pipeline ahead of this year’s Cork City Marathon on June Bank Holiday Monday. The aim is to eliminate some of the drags particularly late on, which have caused some problems in recent years.

Ballycotton 10 Update

- A quick word on Ballycotton as the countdown gathers momentum. By now the full list of entrants – all 3340 of them are on the Ballycotton Running Promotions web site. It might be worth a browse to see who is listed to participate in this year’s race. Midleton AC with over 100 entrants again has the highest of any club.

Mallow 10

Please see below some instructions from Mallow AC for the race...

Key Points for participants and spectators.

As the numbers have grown by 300% over the past four years, the course has changed as we have been forced to avoid the town centre

The start is to the left of the petrol station, just by Davis College. (a few hundred metres from the old start) in a mainly residential area.

The finish is now by the roundabout bar on the main Cork/Limerick Road. While this is not ideal we have struggled to find a better option

Runners will not be allowed run back out the course once finished

Runners will not be allowed use headphones/music players

Once leaving the finish area runners will be asked to use the footbridge to cross the road and return to hall


Pre registered entries are €12, Registration via will be available until mid-night Friday

Pre registered runners must pick up their numbers in the hall.

Entries on the day are €15 (Runners on the day will need to complete entry forms available in the hall)

Last entries on the day will be 11:30am

Registration will be at Mallow Youth Centre, this is a mile from the start and a mile from the finish

Parking is not available at the Youth Centre, there are a number of car parks nearby, details on the website.

All runners will receive a Beanie cap as per last year

Tea/Coffee sandwiches will be available to all runners after the race

Usual prize categories, details on website

€500 Euro bonus if either Male or Female records are broken

Prizes for first 5 runners Male and Female will be presented on the day

Other prizes will be mailed to recipients
On the Course
Keep on the lefthand side of the road, except for one section (9 to 9.5 miles) where you will be directed to run on the right

Obey stewards

Beware of traffic as the roads are not closed

While all possible precautions will be taken, you are responsible for your own safety

Please respect the property of residents at the start .
