Ferrycarrig 5 mile
RACE REPORT-- FERRYCARRIG 5ml, 13th. January, 2013.
Headquarters of the inaugural holding of this race was the Wexford Youths FC complex built and funded by Mick Wallace TD, big two storey clubhouse, football pitches, grandstands and all weather pitches etc., we need to get him up here if he gets over his money problems.
Very well organised and marshalled course, some modest hills but generally a fair course mainly on country roads but with a mile on the hard shoulder of the main Dublin/Wexford road, which was not a problem given the number of stewards. The race attracted a field of 250 app.
Neil, on 80 miles a week, and carrying a cold,got around in 27mns18sec., and 5th place. Sean, definitely not on 80 miles a week, but carrying a similar cold got around in 33. 07, and 1st over 60.
Should be worth a raiding party next year to set us up for Raheny.
