Congrats to Tim on collecting the prestigious Cork City Sports athlete of the month award for October. This is given out on merit for outstanding individual athletic achievement. Tim collected the October award but has been building for it since the turn of the year when he came a lowly 4th in the East Cork AC 5k time trial. However since that day he has amassed 9 victories in 12 outings with the pinnacles being the County Senior XC and Munster Senior XC titles. He won both these in style beat some top class opposition both days.
Tim is also the current East Cork Road and XC champion and took masters victory in the competitive Autumn Open XC in October too. Interestingly he was pipped by newest club recruit Frank O'Brien in the East Cork track championship over 5k. But Tim rebounded by going on a rampage in the summer months clocking some truly eye watering times over 5k and 4 miles:
Fermoy 4 mile: 19:30 - 25th July
Conna 5k: 14:55 - 30th July
Rathcormac 4 mile: - 19.28 - 19th August
Bweeng 5k: 14.29 - 22nd August
Cloyne 5k: 14:43 - 19th September
Congrats again for an award that is much deserved. A few pictures below too to mark the occasion:
