World Championships - Silver Medal
Firstly congrats to Sean who represented East Cork and Ireland at the World Masters in Malaga at the start of September. Sean was 4th overall in the 8km cross country in the M35 category leading Ireland to a team silver behind hosts Spain. Sean then went one better in the 10km road race coming 2nd overall with an excellent 32.13. This tops of an exceptional year for Sean who has been competitive at every level on all surfaces all year.
Cork City 10 Miler
This doubled up as the Cork 10 mile championships and we took out 1st and 2nd positions. Tim winning in a brilliant 51.29 closely followed by Mr PB Kevin O'Leary in 54.13. Unfortunately we didn't have one more for the team event to make it a clean sweep.
East Cork Cross Country
Well done to all who competed for the club at the East Corks last weekend. Sean followed up with World Silver medal with a gold East Cork medal, improving on his bronze form last year. Fiona defended her title in fine style with a comfortable win in the ladies, leading the team home to a bronze medal.
A warm welcome to new members Graham and Lavinia Swords who have jumped straight in the deep end with the training and racing, hopefully there will be a long and successful season ahead!
