Ballyhoura Active series
On Friday night we were in Kilfinane for the 5th race in the series, in spite of the forecast the thunder passed us by and we only got a light shower as the race headed off from the start. Declan Moore Bilboa AC proved too strong for the field on the night and in spite of not being not pushed was just outside the course record. John Hartnett an Bru AC was 2nd with PJ Carey Kilmallock AC 3rd. The Ladies winner on the night was Brigita Lukste from North Cork AC followed by her club mate Ursula Bluett North Cork AC and third lady was Laura Armstrong Dundrum AC. The race was a great success and Kilfinane AC did everything to make it great on the night as they had everything covered.
So we are on the road again and next Friday night we are in Bilboa, just outside Cappamore, co Limerick for the 6th race in this year’s series. Bilboa AC have been running this race for a number of years and the National 10 km championships was held here a few years ago. Now known as the Gerry Mulane 10 km this is the longest race in our series this year and the shortest as they have a 5km as well, which is great for any beginners and couch to 5km runners. The race starts at 8pm which gives you a great chance to get there if you are coming from work and as Cappamore is only 14 miles from Limerick Bilboa AC is only 2 miles out from there. Bilboa AC have their own club house and the both races finish there and there is loads of parking. So if you want a good quality 5k/10k this Friday night then Bilboa is the place to be. For further details, check out the Ballyhouraactive website, see you on the 15th of June in Bilboa, registration from 6pm, race starts at 8pm.
