Bray Runners To The Fore At Enniscorthy 10k.
The Enniscorthy 10k took place on Sunday 8th Feb., it always attracts a large group of athletes from our club and Sli Cualann. We had 14 athletes take part, all of whom were well pleased with their mornings work. The Sli Cualann Senior Ladies took first place in the team event, a great achievement seeing the quality of the opposition. The team was Suzanne Foot, Helen Barry, Ashling Smith and Ashling Kirwan.
In the mens race Gary Condon finished 6th overall and 2nd O/40 in a time of 33.19. Neil Wiktorski, continued his return to racing after injury, and ran a fine 34.21, to finish 7th overall. Bill Stanley smashed his PB, running 38.03, a great performance over a very tough 10k. Another to smash his Pb was Colm O'Heigeartaigh in running 38.30. Interestingly both Colm and Bill each took 55 seconds off their previous best. Good to see James Nangle back racing again, he recorded a fine 40.01.
In the womens race Suzannne Foot finished 6th overall and 1st O/40, and led the Sli Cualann ladies team to victory. Suzanne ran 40.07 a mere second ahead and 1 place ahead of Helen Barry, 40.08, 2nd O/40 and also part of the Sli Cualann team. Ashling Smith finished 3rd O/40 and lady in an excellent 10k debut time of 42.13, Ashling was also part of the Sli Cualann ladies team.
Jean O'Kennedy, made her debut in Bray Runners colours, and was very impressive in recording 46.44 and 3rd O/50. There is no doubt that Jean will be challenging for top honours in her category as the season progresses.
Another Pb was recorded by Angela Ross Innes, she ran 53.06, good to see Angela back racing again after a very heavy racing schedule last season.
