Brilliant performances in final race of Clonmel series

The final race of this year’s Clonmel 4k series took place in ideal running conditions with no breeze or rain for the athletes to contend with. With such benign conditions we saw some great racing and many athletes signed off the series in fine style with Personal Bests (PBs). The Club would like to thank the Brothers of Charity for the use of their fine facilities for this year’s series. The Club would also like to thank all the stewards for their tremendous work each night in ensuring the whole series was well organised.

The race format was a Lucky Dip Draw on finishing positions and the winners were Donal Keane who won the race in 13 mins 45 secs, Kevin Shelly 16th 15:26, John Tobin 26th 16:24. Tom Tierney 31st 16:52, Suzanne Shine 47th 17:49, Michael Grant 54th 18:12, Brendan Franklin 65th 19:12, Tracey Weight 75th 19:21, Francis Brannigan 81st 20:23, Donal Sorohan 95th: 21:53 and Dominic McGuire 109th 25:47. In this series we presented 79 Prizes with 9 people winning two prizes. We had 271 athletes who competed in the Series at some stage, with 24 athletes competing in all 6 races.

The Club is promoting a 2K CHARITY RUN tonight, Wednesday, February 22 at 7 pm. The entry fee is at each athlete’s discretion as all funds raised will go to a worthy charity. In the race every athlete must select a charity when they are entering the race and we will hold a draw on finishing positions and the lucky winner’s charity will benefit. This is your chance to give it holly for one lap and set a PB.
