CNOC Summer Series; Curragh!

Conor Short reports on our event on the Curragh.

The second event of the 2011 CNOC Summer Series took place last Tuesday evening, starting in the Sunny Hill area of the Curragh. Despite high winds early on in the day, as the first starters began their runs the sun was shining and a light breeze was blowing, making for perfect running conditions. Ollie and Orla planned and organised the event with the usual efficiency of the army and a total of 96 people turned up to enjoy the May evening.

The Long course was the most hotly contested with barley over a minute separating the first four places. In the end Donal Burke of DFO took first place, 45 seconds ahead of Conor Short of CNOC. GEN’s Laurence Quinn was a further 11 seconds behind to take third place. Ken Barry was clear winner of the Medium course, and Cian May stormed the Short course to beat Eadaoin McCavana by over two minutes. CNOC’s own Sean Ryan had an excellent win on the Adventure Run, with close to 5 minutes separating him from second place.

Thanks to all who came out for a run, and we hope to see you in Hillwood next Tuesday.
