The Ballintotis 4 mile road race took place last night. Organised by East Cork AC in conjunction with the local community, it was the first evening road race of the year. For the second year in a row, Leevale sent a huge squad of athletes the event, 24 athletes in all.

After a long-running bout of injuries, Chris Harrington is back to something close to his best and had a great run to finish 2nd in 20:43 to James McCarthy of the host club. John Shine was just behind Chris in 3rd. New signing, Marcos Yaniz was the next Leevale man in 8th. Colm Moore in 12th made it 4 Leevale athletes in the top 12. Margaret Murphy was top Leevale lady in 5th.
