It was another grand evening in Ballindine for Dave Huane’s unique annual fundraising event. This year’s ‘Guess your own time’ race was a tremendous success with a great turnout of runners and walkers. Well done to Dave who had the excellent support of the local community, and his team were well supported again by Alan Burke and Maire Treasa Beatty, TJ McHugh and many more helpers on and off the 4 mile course. Almost 5,000 euro was raised and will support both the Patient Comfort Fund, St Joseph’s Oncology Ward, UHG and Rock Rose House, Castlebar.
There were joint winners – TJ Whyte (Tuam AC) and Helen McNamara (Claremorris) were both just one second off their predicted times. There were numerous spot prizes for many others. Gary Thornton was the race winner in 21:29 and Catherine Conway was first woman finisher in 24:38. Of the 125 runners, 30 finished within 30 seconds of their predicted time, and of these 17 were slower, 13 quicker.
