The big road race this weekend was the BHAA\UCC 10K that was held on the Lee Road\Straight Road circuit. As always it drew a top-quality field. In the women’s race Claire Gibbons-McCarthy was a class apart as she covered the distance in an impressive 34:39, a good workout for her marathon later this month. Helen Leonard was second across the line in the ladies’ race.
In the men’s categories the Leevale athletes packed well. Eric Curran was 4th overall in 33:03, followed just behind by John O’Connell, Darren Molloy, Brian Hegarty and Finbarr O’Dwyer. Darren and Finbarr were 1-2 in the M40 category and the evergreen John O’Leary was the winner of the M70.
