’26 on the 26th’ Marathon

Congratulations to Helen Cronin and Michelle Traynor who completed their ‘26 on the 26th’ Marathon on Saturday morning!

The girls are two of the clubs strongest and most consistent runners who never miss a Saturday long run! Their lockdown training around the hills of Waterfall paid off on Saturday when they effortlessly pulled off a 3.41 marathon cheered on by club mates and family members.

This was Helens sixth marathon and Michelle’s first. Michelle has frequently insisted over the last couple of years that she would never run a marathon – But we knew that Helen would convince her eventually! Well done girls!

Eagle AC Virtual Cheetah Run 2021 Results

Now that the dust has settled on the 2021 Virtual Cheetah Run, we are delighted to announce that the event has raised an impressive total of €4,540 of much needed funds for Fota Wildlife Park!

This amount was raised through both entry fees as well as extra donations from race entrants.

A massive THANK YOU from all at Eagle AC to those who supported the event. It was great to see over 400 entries – from individuals, families and even a few school classes!

A big thanks to all who publicised the run, especially to Jarlath Regan and Sonia O’Sullivan from ‘Irishman Running Abroad’ podcast. The guys gave the event a mention on their super podcast, as well as running a Strava event supporting the race with their listeners.

Thanks also to Ronan Wogan of myrunresults.ie for organising the entries, merchandise and results for us. The results can be viewed here:https://www.myrunresults.com/events/fota_cheetah_virtual_run/4107/results

Well done to our 2021 race winners – Damian Kenneally ( 17.02) and Trish Hegarty ( 18.55)

Finally, while it’s great that our virtual event has gone so well, nothing beats the real thing! All things going well, we can’t wait to host Cheetah Run 2022 back at Fota Wildlife Park!
