Saturday results Galway Bay Half, Ox Mountain 10

Racing conditions were tough today as rain and wind swept across Connacht. There were some excellent times despite that and mental resilience was tested.

In the Galway Bay Half Marathon we had a number of members competing, many of them having a good workout before tapering ahead of Dublin Marathon. The start was slightly delayed  before the field set off on one short and two long laps.
Well done to Tom Prendergast –  our top finisher in 17th overall 1:21.34 and to Ann Marie Clarke 1:49.12, Maria Kneafsey 1:56.19, Mags Connell 1:58.03, Monica Joyce 1:52.16, John Niland 1:44.16, Greg Barry 1:47.35, Joe O’Gara 1:57.28, Colette McTigue 2:17.50, Geraldine Heneghan 2:09.15, Patricia Nyland 2:33.32. Some 60 + results still pending, so will add when clarified.
Sergio Ciobanu (Clonliffe Harriers) was the winner in 66:29, and Adrianna Mulligan (Longford AC) first woman in 82:04.
