On Easter Monday Kilmallock AC runners made the short trip to Bruff to take part in the Bruff GAA 10K/5K Fun Run and they made it a successful raid with club runners filling 5 of the podium places in the two races. In the 10K our new recruit Janusz Chelstowski had a comfortable victory winning the race in a time of 40:20 approximately. Finishing second with a PB was Krzysztof Sikorski in 41:38. Also competing in the race was Maurice McEniry running a fine PB of 46:32.
In the 5K PJ Carey had a narrow victory over club mate John Paul McCarthy in approximately 20:20 with Donie Dwane finishing third in 20:31 ensuring a clean sweep for the club of the podium places. Well done to all involved with good times and results.

Ros Run Marathon
On Saturday Patrick Roche edged closer to the milestone figure of 100 completed marathons when he completed the Ros Run Marathon in Roscommon town on Easter Saturday. Patrick finished in a time of 5:11:32 also finishing first in his category in the process. Next up is a double header in UL next week which on completion will see Him reach 100. We wish him all the well in this great achievement which has taken him only slightly over 3 years to complete.
Our C25K Fun run/walk takes place this Saturday 7th of April in Kilmallock @ 7pm and this year the occasion is even more special as it also doubles as a fundraiser for young Adam Lewis who is taking part in the finals of the Special Olympics national finals this June in Dublin. Walkers and runners of all abilities are welcome. Afterwards we will be having an after party in Fitzgerald’s Bar in Kilmallock with Music by DJ Derek (our Male Club Captain Derek Sheedy) with finger food. Should be a great occasion.
