The 2012 SuperValu Winter League is proving to be the most successful yet with large numbers of athletes running consistently well over the six weeks to date. The full results of last Tuesday evening’s run and starting times for week 7 can be found on the club website, http://www.carrickroadrunners.ie/ .

The fastest time clocked on Tuesday last was Michael O’Connell’s 17:27, showing that Michael has recovered quickly from his recent fine run in the Dublin City Marathon. Martina O’Dwyer was once again fastest among the ladies with a time of 18:07. Mary Molloy and Tara O’Donnell were the next two ladies with times of 20:44 and 20:49 respectively.

The top ten points scorers for week 6 were: 1. Keith Barry 2. David Waters 3. Olive O’Brien 4. Michael O’Connell 5. Liam Knox 6. David Foley 7. Jim O’ Meara 8. Nicola Barry 9. Aine Knox 10. Noelette O’Brien

The clock will start at 7pm sharp for the next run on this Tuesday, November 20. Please wear a hi-viz bib/vest and run on the right-hand side of the college avenue at all times. It is also very important that all runners pass through the tunnel at the finish line with their number clearly visible on the front of their bib.

This year’s League will conclude on Tuesday, December 11 and prizes will be presented at the club’s Christmas night out on Saturday, December 15 in the Carraig Hotel.
