Norah Newcombe runs brilliant new 10k PB in Dunshaughlin

The annual Michael Manning Memorial Dunshaughlin 10k is a firm favourite with runners. It was predictably sold out some time ago. It’s a flat course with overall elevation of 32 metres.


Women’s course record holder is Fionnuala McCormack Kilcoole AC who ran 32:08 last year – 28 women under 40 minutes.



Norah Newcombe Pietrese was in great form when winning the West of Ireland Women’s 10k recently in a fast 36:47.


She excelled again today in Dunshaughlin with a brilliant new 10k PB 35:29 /35:27 chip, seventh woman finisher and first F40. A massive one minute faster than her Ballina time!

Norah said afterwards “All my running life I’ve been trying to break 36mins. Tonight was so special in Dunshaughlin.”

A special day indeed for a very special athlete.


Congratulations Norah!


A high class field made for some excellent competition and results.


78 finishers under 35 minutes, and 272 under 40.


29 women under 40 minutes.


Well done also Maura Ginty Sportsworld AC 40:05/39:56 chip – Maura featured strongly in our recent 5k Series.
