Mary Loughnane is Handicap Champion 2009

Sorry about the delay in getting these results up – I was away from the old computer for the last few days. 

{rsg2_display: 26, superclean}

In total 37 athletes turned up on another miraculously fine evening.  Reacting well to the pressure of the final night, the running form was sensational on the night with an incredible 21setting PB's (considering for 5 people this was the first race that means 2 out of every 3 runners set a pb – amazing).  Race winners on the night were the Porter girls Laura and Linda who shook off some weary camogie legs to storm home well ahead of their predicted time in 24:09.  In second place on the night was Cepta Daly in a fine time of 25:56, followed closely by Mary Loughnane who managed a massive personal best of 25:33.

Fastest man on the night was the ever reliable Johnny Lane who cruised home in 17:01.

Series Results: Overal winner
The series was open to any athlete that completed 3 races or more and this was perhaps our most dramatic end yet.  Mary Loughnane's superb final night run was enough to topple long-standing league leader Aine Rooney from the top spot on the final night.  Aine ran very well herself on the final night – scoring a pb, but the entire field did so well that it wasn't enough for her on the night.

Another unexpected twist happened for third place as Gabriel Gardiner ran a huge huge PB of 19:16 to overhaul both Mary O'Reilly and Valerie Slattery for third place.  Huge congratulations to the winners this year who as you can see from the results definitely deserved it through their steady improvement over the 8 weeks.

1. Mary Loughnane (10 pts)
2. Aine Rooney (19 pts)
3. Gabriel Gardiner (21 pts)

Fastest Runners:
The fastest runner is given to the person who ran 3+ races that recorded the quickest time.  Often this is a walkover category as somone dominates from week to week and this was the case in the fastest female category which was won by a superb Sharon Gilligan who shaved 11 seconds off her PB throughout the series.  Sharon showed amazing consistency by recording her pb of 21:19 in each of her last two races.  Most of her finishes were within 3 seconds of each other!

This year there was a really interesting battle in the fastest male category, with David Reilly from Loughrea running nip and tuck with Peter O'Sullivan in all the races.  Coming into tonights final David had the edge with a 18:07pb that Peter knew he would have to beat.  I hope I didn't put David off before the race by mentioning that all prize winners would receive a Craughwell AC Singlet as well as a trophy! 

In any case Peter ran an absolute stormer – clocking a PB 17:42 to take the title and his second ever sub-18 minute 5k – both of which happened this week!

Well done to all athletes and see you again next year!

Thanks from Order of Malta
I presented the cash collected at series registration to Paraic McDonnell of the Order of Malta yesterday.  In total 237euro was collected.  Paraic was delighted at the surprise contribution from the club – thanks all of you for contributing to this worthy cause.

The final league table is below – in total 64 people took part in the series.  I highlighted the PB's in yellow so you can see just how well everyone ran on the last night!
