Country Club A.C Notes Week Ending 12/8/18

Last Wednesday saw the start of the Go Tri Run Series in Shannon, this is a 4 week series on consecutive Wednesdays with three 5k races and the last race a 10k. Running from the club were:

Niall Bennis 19:24

Philip Cantillon 19:32

Ger Slater 22:02

The Country Club selected the Streets of Galway 8k as the venue for our annual club outing. Some went on the bus – the bould & rowdy ones! More club members made their own way and we all met up in Galway with 18 in total racing. It was a fantastic day and everyone enjoyed themselves. There were some great performances in the race but we can’t post any results yet as there is a Stewards Enquiry into Pat Halpin and Ernest Kinsela’s results  Huge congratulations go to Johnny Collins and Pat O’Regan (both in their 80’s) who both completed the course – both men are awe-inspiring & we’re all so proud of them in our club 💓.

This Friday sees the inaugural running of our club 5k race, this is the penultimate race in the Ballyhoura Active Series with the last race being the Churchtown 5 Mile on the 24th of August. We are delighted this year to be a part of the Ballyhoura Active Series and we look forward to welcoming you all to The Country Club on Friday night. Registration is open from 6pm with the race starting at 7.30pm.
