We celebrated the end of another successful and enjoyable Summer 5k Series at Ballyhaunis this evening with a grand After Party courtesy of the facilities at the Rugby Club. The local Meet & Train group led by Martin Fitzmaurice put on a well organised event – a big thank you to them all.. They also provided welcome sustenance with a tasty hot meal and the usual runner’s popular post race delights – tea, scones, tart and cakes. Series Race winners were recognised and numerous spot prizes drawn. The Series was blessed with five fine summer evenings which added to the enjoyment of all participants. First of 170 finishers on the night was Michael Rocke in 17:35, Noel Gibbons 2nd and John Nolan 3rd. Ann Lennon in 18:45 was first woman with Colette Sweeney 2nd, and Joan Walsh 3rd
In the five race Series Michael Rocke won at Claremorris, Brickens and Ballyhaunis. James Ryan won at Castlebar, and Paddy O’Toole recorded the fastest time winning at Ballinrobe. Women Series winners were headed by Ann Lennon who won at Claremorris and Ballyhaunis, with Colette Sweeny also winning two – Castlebar and Brickens, while Catherine Conway won at Ballinrobe.
