Carney 10k and Sligo Half Marathon results

Racing conditions were good for the 18th annual Carney 10K race, and 3rd Sligo Half Marathon on Easter Monday.

The popular north Sligo event has two excellent courses: the half is an ‘out and back’ along the coastal road to Raghly Harbour; the 10k is one lap via Lissadell beach – with both finishes at Carney village.

Over 500 runners took part today – almost twice the 2023 total.
Mayo AC’s three competitors ran in the 10k.
They were led home by Johnny Cribbin – our in-form master athlete – who crossed the line in a brilliant 40:34, 21st overall and 1st M60. He also won the M60 category in the Kilmovee 10k two days ago in 41:20.
 That’s impressive running by Johnny, considering Carney is nothing like Kilmovee’s ‘flattest 10k in the West’ –  in the early days promoted as ‘the flattest in Ireland’!
Ray Clarke had a great run to finish 31st overall and 3rd M50 in 41:36 – a minute outside the 40:30 he clocked in Carney last year, but a similar time to his 41:33 in Tubbercurry two weeks ago.
Well done also to Dee Corcoran who finished 3rd F40 in 45:48. She ran   43:30 in last year’s race and 44:26 as part of our winning women’s team in Tubbercurry 10k on St  Patrick’s Day.
The 10k race winner was Seamus Somers Sligo AC M50 33:58, Cora Regan Drumshanbo AC (sister of Olympic Marathon runner Breege Connolly) was first woman home in 39:07.
 Sligo Half Marathon winner: Ross Neill Crusaders AC 1:16.17, first woman Aela Stewart City of Derry Spartans AC 1:25.51.
