There was a good turn out from the club at the BHAA ESB 5km beach race on Sandymount last Tuesday. With the tide out and a mild evening there was good underfoot conditions for the runners who did 2 laps of a 2.5km out and back course.

Ruth Kelly put in a sprint finish to make up ground to come second, one second behind the evening ladies winner Orla Gormley and about 10 seconds ahead of our own Rachel Morgan who came third. I’m fairly sure Stephanie Bergin ran well on the evening (even if her time is missing from the results atm) and Tara Murphy who cycled to the event ran a steady race. The gents were represented by Stephen Willoughby, Conor Kenny and myself all three of whom could be said to have made it around the course without incident. If i missed anybody please let me know. Full results can be seen on the BHAA website.

The next BHAA event is the 5 Mile Government Services race in Dunboyne on Tuesday May 28th.
