As the runners head to Hollymount next weekend for what will be the second last race in the 2010 series, many are aware that results there will determine numerous placings on the final league table for 2010.
In the Mens League Roger Barrett [Ballina AC] is the clear leader on 140 points from 6 races ran while his club mate Michael Canty is second on 107 points from 5 races while another Ballina AC man Sean Gallagher lies third on 101 points also having ran 5 races to date. Further down the field last years league winner Gerry Ryan of Craughwell AC [100points from 4 races ] and John Byrne Mayo AC [97 points from 4 races] are well positioned, but need to run in, and get good results in the two remaining races to challenge for the title .
In the Womens League with Mary Gleeson [Mayo AC] the clear leader on 149 points from her 6 best results, the question is who will be runner up? It could be Kathy Connolly who has a best 6 of 136 pts, ahead her sister Chris Gallagher now third on 121 points .while well positioned is Colette Tuohy surely to discovery of the year who has 119 points from the five races that she has run. Also Angela OConnor on 88 points from 4 races could challenge if she gets good results in the two remaining races….last years league winner Catherine Conway who has been in outstanding form all year has not run in sufficient league races to be in the final shake up this year
The fully updated league tables will be available on the Mayo AC web site later next week and will also be on display at the Hollymount Road Races…………………..
