Three St. Finbarr’s athletes represented the club at the Rotterdam Marathon 2010 on Sunday April 11th last. Despite the cold and windy conditions excellent times were returned with Cathal O’Connell coming home in a time of 2.34.11 (1st O/45), Derek O’Leary home in a time of 2.42 and Eamonn Carroll finishing in a time of 2.58. Our colleague from Midleton A.C. Noel O’Regan set a P.B. by over five minutes with a fantastic time of 2.40.  Well done to all.

Running in Ireland – An Amateur Appreciation

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

by Paul Tucker

This is the running I was used to in Australia: post-school, post-college and in a town of 40 000 people, 4 hours north of Brisbane.  I had a running pal and we would often run together and when we couldn’t I would run alone or with my wife.  There were no races in the region.  No league or series, no cross-country, no road races.  (I remember running in a club like cross-country race when I was 11 and I was one of 3 competitors, one of which was a girl).  There was an athletics club for kids up to 16 and in theory for adults, but there was little to no track racing for those over 13.  Anything like that was 400km away and if you’re not quicker than 6 minute miles there you’re a nuisance.
