Midleton 5 Mile Road Race, 2nd May 2019


Approx. 40 members were in attendance at the Midleton 5 Mile Road Race on Thursday evening, the first race of the Eagle AC Summer Series 2019. A great turnout!

The club was led home by Donal Dowling who ran under 30 minutes for the first time finishing in a very impressive 29.45. Paul Cotter was right behind in a time of 29.47, a great run so soon after the Boston Marathon. Catherine Murphy led the ladies home in a brilliant 33.03.


Plenty of category prizes were picked up on the night by club members. Well done to Brian McGuire (M50 1), Tom Fox (M50 2) , Catherine Murphy (F40 3) , Richard Piotrowski (M70 1), Denis Carroll ( M55 2), Mike McGrath ( M55 3) , Helen Cronin (F35 2) , and Frances O’Connor ( F60 1) . Special mention also to Ed Fitzgerald who was on pacing duty for the race. Well done all.

Next race up in the Summer Series is the Inniscarra 4 Mile Road Race which takes place on Friday, June 14th. At the end of the series there will be prizes for the top 3 men and women aswell as the 1st in age categories. There will also be a prize for the runner who achieves the most improvement in their times as the series progresses. All members who complete at least 4 out of the 5 races in the series will receive a memento! Thanks to Damian for all of his work in organising this.
