Great running by Mayo AC @ National 10 mile

Mayo AC had five competitors in today’s National 10 Mile Championships in the Phoenix Park. The 9am start meant another long day for West of Ireland runners.

 Some competitors had a free entry from Athletics Ireland due to the fiasco National 10k at the same location last April. The last time we had runners in this event was 2019.
Like the recent 5 mile championships most national competitors were from clubs in the Dublin catchment area.
A wet surface and misty rain made for tough conditions.
Mayo AC results: (Net times: determine championship places, category place)
Colette Tuohy W50 67:53 4th – hard luck on a brave effort, she won gold in W50 2019 in 65:44.
Angela O’Connor W55 70:36 4th – hard luck also, just two seconds outside bronze.
Pauline Moran W65 69:47 another brilliant 1st – just outside her 2019 10m pb in same race: 69:14 and gold W60.
Our first three combined times  count for M50 team medals = 3:28.32 which will have a great chance of winning medals – brilliant running!
Now showing on team results as gold W50 for Mayo AC, four minutes ahead of Mullingar Harriers AC

Disappointment for Colette and Angela, but hopefully they and  will be rewarded with well deserved W50 team medals, as will Pauline to add to her gold individual.
