Dunshaughlin 10K 2019
Great turnout of Bray Runners and Sli Cualann athletes at the Dunshaughlin 10k on Saturday 22nd June. Excellent times recorded, Pbs, Sbs and a few category prizes as well.
Ian McGrath continued his fantastic season running 32.48 and was 2nd 0/45. Darren Cullen ran an excellent 34.45 closely followed by Paul Allen in 35.16, an incredible 1min 59 sec off his previous best. Not to be outdone Garrett Kelly ran a new Pb of 37.02, which is 3mins 8sec off his previous best. Joe Kelly, running his first race in quite a while, ran a fine 38.50. Suzanne Foot ran 40.34 and was 3rd 0/45 and Bill Stanley ran 42.21. Karol O'Loinsigh was another to run a Pb, recording 43.07
Richard Kavanagh ran 43.32, 2nd 0/65, ( Paul Elliot was 1st 0/65 in a new Irish record of 38.32). Fine run from Siobhan Butler 46.03, 7th 0/50 and her best 10k in over 2 years. Great run from Sharon Bailey, 47.04 a new Pb by almost 1 minute. Dillon O'Neill ran 47.29, going very well to 7k but fell ill at that stage and had to jog home. Paul Gannon 50.48 and Peter Doran 52.52 were very happy with their times. Sandra Brady ran 53.49, 6th 0/55 and her best 10k in over 2 years. Mary O'Connor, 56.44, 9th 0/55 and ran her 2nd fastest 10k. Fine run from Jackie O.Neill, 61.20, tantalisingly close to recording a new PB.
The Sli Cualann men's team finished in 7th place, (Ian, Darren, Paul Allen and Robert Murphy) from 59 teams. The Sli Cualann women's team (Suzanne Foot, Siobhan Butler and Lynne Duffy) finished 8th from 67 Teams. Congratulations to Fionnuala McCormack who was 1st woman home in Dunshaughlin in a time of 32.17, a new course record. Congratulations also go to Sarah Baryga, who was 1st woman home in the Waterford Marathon, Sat 22nd June, in a very impressive 2.58.50.
