A quite enough January on the racing front. Although this weekend we will see our Intermediate team in action in Dundalk on Sunday. Best of luck to them and also Tim, who is looking to retain his title in the Masters race.
Paul Hartnett competed in the National U23 indoors in January in the 1500m. He finished 6th in a time of 3.59.
Frank ran in the Bucs XC intervarsity and finished in 33rd place in 35.50. This time he hopefully enjoyed a warm down instead of dashing across Europe to another race the next day.
Michael Furlong kicked off the year finishing 12th in the Beaufort 10k in 36.09. Siobhan, Niamh and Avril all ran in the IFF BHAA 5k and all broke 21 minutes, with Siobhan pipping Niamh by 2 seconds to take club bragging rights. Donal travelled to Dublin for the high quality Raheny 5 mile and ran a PB of 27.15. The third Cloyne 5k race was also on. John Spelman recorded his second victory of the series to keep his hopes of overall series winner very much alive. On a very windy Sunday morning John ran 13.05 for the win. Michael Furlong is also still in the hunt after winning the first race of the series, he was 4th in 13.51. Ollie Smiddy had a good run chasing down Rebecca McEvoy running 15.09, Martin Hennessy had a strong run to break 16 mins in 15.55. Denis was 49th overall in 19.04 and Eibhlin is continuing her journey back with another solid 22.04.
