Cork Marathon

Well done everyone on the fantastic performances. The weather conditions were near perfect and it resulted in some great achievements in the full, half and team relay events.

In the Marathon Cathal O Connell was 8th overall in 2.33.57 (just 24 seconds off 5th!) and was first in M45. Mary Sweeney was another category winner in F50 and Margo was 3rd in F40. These are all provisional results. We are also waiting on confirmation that Margo broke the world marathon talking record! :-)

In the half marathon John Meade came 2nd with a great performance in 74.10. James Cosgrave was 4th overall and was 1st M40 in 76.39. Claire McCarthy was 2nd in the ladies half in a time of 80.48 finishing 9th overall. This was another brilliant performance from Claire who is showing some great form at the moment. Orla Crosbie put in an excellent performance to finish 2nd F40 in a time of 1.36.51. These are also provisional results.

In the team relay Martin McCarthy was part of the first team to finish while St. Finbarr’s AC floaters were 8th overall in 2.45.20. The team was made up of Patrick Rahilly, Karina Teahan, Neil Murphy, Brian russell and Aidan O’Gorman.

Here are the provisional results. If I missed anyone let me know as I had to go through the program to extract the Barr’s runners and the club wasn’t listed for everyone.
