Tullamore Harriers last race of 2013 was well attended despite the blustery weather as the Harriers celebrated New Year’s Eve with the annual Round the Houses ‘Midnight Run’.
This race starts in the car park and takes in four loops around Adam villas for a course totalling 4700m and is run as a blind handicap with all runners starting together and handicaps applied to the results. Tommy Carberry emerged as the winner of 2013 race with Christy Donegan second and Tricia Shaw third.
Catch Grennan continued his Christmas winning streak, crossing the line first in 15.39 having established an early lead. Adrian Curley ran very strongly to take second place looking very comfortable as he crossed the line in 15.43. Former Harriers member Anne Marie McGlynn also took part, showing the impressive form that earned her a place on the Irish team for the European Cross Country Championship last month.
Winners: 1st Tommy Carberry; 2nd Christy Donegan; 3rd Tricia Shaw; 4th Sean Rigney; 5th Hillary Duncan; 6th Rory Farrell. Fastest Man: Catch Grennan; Fastest Woman: Mary Bracken.
