St Catherines AC take on the John Treacy 10-mile road race in Dungarvan

Over 30 runners from our club took on the challenging course and the huge field of nearly 3,000 athletes. There were some great performances from all of our athletes. Some runners were making their debut at this prestigious race while others were looking to better their previous performances and run a new PB. Many achieved this, so hearty congratulations to all who finished. Hard luck to Frank Goss who had to pull up early on.

Trevor Geary led the club home and he broke the magical 60-minute barrier, clocking a time of 59.46 minutes. He was followed by Mike Byrne, John Beecher, Chris O’Connell, Pat Costigan, Keith Barry and Brendan Hickey who all finished within 70 minutes. The next group was led by John Mulcahy and followed by Shane Kearney, Bill O’Keeffe, Laurence O’Connor, Colin Cunningham, Frances Barry, Roisin Ronayne, Ann Geary, Kieran Harte and Paddy Ryan who all completed the course between 70 and 80 minutes. The next group were Georgina Cunningham, Paul O’Connell, Allan Carr, Sean Twomey, Siobhan Hayes, Aileen Kennedy, Noreen Daly, Kathleen Keane, Ger Sheehan and Martina O’Gorman who all finished the course between 80 and 90 minutes. The final group of runners were Brendan O’Gorman, Martin Carr, Aisling Collins, John Morrison and Niamh Pyne and they all finished between 90 and 105 minutes.

Well done to everyone on the first big race of the year.
