Ballyhaunis trio at Bundoran l-r Martin Fitzmaurice, Joe O’Gara, Justin McDonagh









Mayo AC were well represented in two big road races yesterday, (Saturday March 4) both at seaside locations – Bundoran Co Donegal and Kinvara Co Galway. It was a good day for running – cool with a very light breeze.

The well established one lap Bundoran 10 miler attracted a big field with 1133 finishers listed.

Jake O’Regan St John’s AC was the clear winner in a fast 49:10 (he won last year in 48:40), with Rio Olympian Breege Connolly City of Derry AC first woman home in 58:15.

Sara Doohan Corran AC ran an excellent race to finish second in 60:19, showing she is right back in form for 2023.

Neil Carroll was Mayo AC’s first finisher crossing the line in 64:55. It’s great to see Neil out competing again – he has had a tough few years with various injuries. It was his first 10 miler since 2017 when he ran 64:36 in Bundoran. Neil is delighted to be back competing and today’s performance indicates he’s in great shape.

Donna Gallagher also had a good run and she was our next Bundoran finisher in 77:10.

She was followed by two members from Ballyhaunis –  Martin Fitzmaurice 86:07 and Justin McDonagh 89.08 They were joined by neighbour Joe O’Gara who ran 90:20.

In a sustainable initiative, the metal medal presented to finishers in the 10 miler was made from recycled zinc and ribbon.
