Congratulations to the three Mayo women Sinéad, Regina and Norah who led the field home in the 7th Annual West of Ireland Castlebar Women’s 10k. It was a brilliant win for Sinéad Diver as she competed in her first race in Ireland during a short visit from Melbourne to her native Erris. Her finish time 35:27 was a new course record, beating Lizzie Lee’s 2015 time by eight seconds. Regina Casey (GCH) 37:32, and Norah Newcombe (Mayo AC) 37:51 were just over two minutes behind in second and third respectively and slightly down on their times last year. Mayo AC had a big turnout among over 1300 finishers with ten members finishing in the top 50. Well done to all our finishers. Apart from those shown here, their details will be compiled and posted later. The other finishers in under 45 minutes were:
