West Limerick A.C Club Notes 01/03/21


Adare virtual 10km huge success!

The month of February was filled with our members and friends running our annual fundraiser, the Adare 10K. This time we ran together but stayed apart, within the 5km radius our participants took to the roads, greenways, parks, and tracks to set out on their chosen distance.

Participants were spoilt for choice this year as they could choose from the traditional 10km which is the distance raced every year along with 1km, 2km and 5km. Although we cannot wait for the day when we all race together again there was a silver lining to the race being held  virtually as this allowed our younger members to run and complete the shorter distances which we have not had in previous years. We would like to thank everyone for participating and we cannot wait to welcome you all back. Well done to everyone for completing the races.

We would also like to say a big well done to all our juveniles, Joseph Carr,Amy Lenihan, Katie Lenihan, Ailey Lyons, Kealan Lyons, Eavan Lyons and Garvan Lyons for running.

The 1km had 14 participants, the top three fastest times were Kealan Lyons 3:34,  Eavan Lyons 3:37 and Garvan Lyons 3:48.

The 2km had 9 runners, the top three were Kealan Lyons 8:16, Eavan Lyons 8:20 and Garvan Lyons 8:25.

The 5km had 65 participants the top three men were Niall O Riordan 15:35, Niall O Callaghan 15:38 and Mike Sheehy 16:19.The top three women were Aislinn MacDomhaill 17:19,Breda Gaffney 18:52 and Mary O Shea 20:14.

The traditional 10km distance was the most popular race choice with 165 runners, The top three men were Matthew McMeekin 32:25, Declan Guina 33:08 and Niall O Callaghan 33:32 the top three women were Sorcha Macdomhaill 34:46, Breda Gaffney 38:14 and Mary Cronin 38:55.
