Newmarket Classic 5k Road Race:

The very popular 5k race took place today in Newmarket at 1pm. There was a fantastic turn out at this very popular race which was hosted and well organised by Duhallow AC.
Weather conditions were good and dry despite the bad weather in recent days.
We had a number of our athletes representing the club today with an excellent run from Declan Guina leading home the West Limerick lads in a time of 16:57. He was followed by Sean O’Sullivan (18:42), Eoin McAuliffe (19:55), Carmel Mc Domhnaill (23:56) and Norman paddle(27:49).
Fantastic day out and very well done to all our runners!
Ireland’s Fittest Family:
Well done to club member Dympna Lawlor who along with her sons Darragh, Jonah and Matthew reached the final of Ireland’s Fittest Families. They were very unfortunate not to make the final two but we in club and area are very proud of their achievements. 
Christmas Wishes:
The club would like to wish all of our members a Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year. Remember that club members are always only a phone call away should you need to get out and run or meet up.
