Our 10 Milers from Dungarvan were at it again in Mallow this weekend. With James and Fiona gracing the podium once again. Fiona despite having to stop and tie her lace came through in 62.47 in 2nd position. James had a solid run for 3rd overall in 53.04. Perhaps he wasn't expecting this as there was no sign of his East Cork top for the presentation, in certain eyes however this would indicate he has his priorities right! Kevin backed up his break through run in Dungarvan with another sub 55min clocking (54.56), well surpassing his pre race expectations.
More locally the series finale of the very popular Cloyne 4k wrapped up on a nice bright sunny morning, quite the opposite of the conditions that led to its postponement the prior week. Frank O'Brien of Midleton AC won the race and series. Frank has been a regular at the East Cork training on Thursday and Saturday throughout the winter and is looking in good form. Conor had another good run for 4th in 14.32 knocking 7 seconds from his prior run so is going in the right direction. Eric just behind him in 6th dipped under the 15 min mark yet again in a consistent 14.53, 1 second faster than last race! Denis ran a tidy 16.23 for 15th overall and John Walshe ran an even 20.00 for 60th.
