Well Done:

Well done to those who represented the club last weekend. 

The Great Limerick Run was on a beautiful, but very hot, day last Sunday.  Over 13,000 people ran on the day.

First up was Garry Collins, who did the half marathon.  Great running Garry in tough conditions. So far Garry would seem to have avoided the camera but I’m still looking! 

Next up flying the Buttevant RC colours were James Breen, Betty O’Shaughnessy and Martina Morrissey in the 10K.  Fantastic running by all.  Special mention to Martina who completed her first 10k event and not a bother to her. 

To everyone else who was out doing training runs over the weekend, well done.  Many miles covered overall.

Upcoming Events:

Best of luck to those who are taking part in the 2nd race of the Ballyhoura Active Series in Galbally 4 mile Friday night, Darkness Into Light on Saturday morning and those who are taking part in the 5k & 10k run in Bweeng on Sunday upcoming events.   Another busy weekend coming up.
