East Mayo AC Series race 2, a win for John Byrne at Cloonlyon

One direction home… Cloonlyon 5k winner John Byrne at the finish line

The second race in East Mayo AC’s 5k series took place at Cloonlyon on Saturday morning. The weather was warm and dry- a good day for running. The Cloonlyon 5k was another well organised event by the host club, with a good relaxed atmosphere.


At the start race organiser Trina Donohue reminded the 56 participants assembled in pods, that the course was a little hillier than the previous week at Curry. The undulations started just after 1k and continued until about 600 metres  from the finish line near Bushfield church.

Well done John Byrne –  who came home first in 17:26. He was one of eight finishers from Mayo AC.

Sara Doohan (Corran AC) was also enjoying a return to racing and was first woman to finish in 17:53.
