July Distance Roundup

The summer road racing schedule continued tirelessly into July and we kicked off on Thursday 6th in East Cork where Anthony Mannix came 2nd in 21:05 and Donal Coakley took 3rd spot in 21:36 at the Corkbeg 4 miler. Donal later had some interesting thoughts about this race.

Next up was the annual Cork City sports track meet on Tuesday 11th where a group of Leevale athletes competed in the open 3k. Chris Mintern led home the club with a very strong run taking 3rd spot in 8:42. In the junior 1500m, Matt Murnane took top spot in 4:04.  

On Thursday 13th, Niamh Roe (31:33) and Conor McCauley (26:43) took respective wins in the Coachford 5 miler with Tim Twomey taking 3rd spot in 27:41 and Leevale taking the mens team prize. On the same evening in Ovens, Mark Walsh took 2nd place at the BHAA 4 Dell EMC 4 mile race running 21:01.

At the Banteer show 5k on Sunday 16th Carol Finn continued her good form with another win in 19:20. On Wednesday 19th there was a big turnout from Leevale at the Carrigtwohill 5k. Michelle Kenny was first home in the ladies in 18:31 with Helen Leonard coming in 3rd in 19:45. Donal Coffey was 3rd in the mens running 16:42. 

On Thursday 20th there was plenty of family love in Castlemagner as Michelle (22:06) just pipped her sister Carol (22:07) as the Finns took the top 2 positions in their hometown race. In Garryvoe on Friday 21st, Alfie Davis ran 17:27 to come 2nd in the 5k race.
