Club Notes…Fri 8th Sept 2017

Club Notes…Fri 8th Sept 2017…by Karen Bevan & the news team : Well done to all involved in races this week, I think we covered all bases. Great results in the Greenway half marathon and some very impressive endurance running in the wind and rain over the Kerry mountains. We also had a representative in the cross country running and plenty of Eagle Ac members out in the St Luke’s 5k this evening. Great stuff everyone!


L-R…Maura Regan, Adelle O’Connor & Kelly Agnew at the St.Luke’s 5k. This was Maura’s first 5k race in two and half years and ended up winning the F35 category!

Best of Luck to anyone running in the John Buckley 10 mile road race on Saturday evening, the 9th. A fast and fast course so do get out there and show them what the Eagles can do; You’ll be great we have no doubt about that!

Have a great weekend and hope the training is going well for whatever you next goal may be.

Thanks as always to all who have contributed to the email this week.

Well done to John Dunphy our only representative for the cross country in Limerick. Feedback from john is that it was a very fast field of runners on the day but an enjoyable event to be involved in and he was happy to represent the club on the day.
