A handful of our athletes took part in the South O’Hanlon 4 mile road race in Navan on Friday night (5th June). The course was a flat one and a great crowd turned out for this annual event.
Lucy Darcy, looking very fresh after her strong run in the mini marathon, led the ladies team to first place with a second place finish in a time of 24.17, followed by Crona Bady who was third in 24.27, Mary Finn, 5th in 25.05 and Kathleen Horgan, first over 35 in 25.28. Pauline Curley was top of the ladies in a speedy time of 22.31.
Our only male competitor was Paul Duffy who, following his great win on the track earlier in the week, ran a fantastic race to finish 5th in 21.22. Gearoid O Connor of Rathfarnham was first home in 20.48.
Congratulations to everyone!
