Paul Mitchell on this way to winning the Offaly 10k Championships
Well done to Dermot Smith seen here running in the Charleville Half Marathon last weekend in a great time of 1.26.59. Robbie Westman took on the Kilkenny Half Marathon where he finished 11th overall in 1.27.54. Well done to both.
Last Sunday’s Ballinagar 10k road race was designated as the Offaly championship race over that distance. Tullamore Harriers had a clean sweep in the men’s race with Paul Mitchell taking victory ahead of Mark Donegan and Leonard Mooney. Pauline Curley won the women’s race with Sinead Rigney taking third place behind Charlotte Kearney of Donadea AC. Christy Donegan was first over 50, Johnny Feery was first over 60 and Conor Butler won the Junior race. Full results to follow.
