Halloween Party at First Steps Montessori
Borrisoleigh Track Attack Notes
The opening round saw Ailbe Cummins lead from gun to tape in a time of 27:47 closely followed by Paudie Meehan a single second behind. Throughout the field there was evidence of a great willingness to dig deep to complete the 6km course and in turn this was complemented by an array of impressive finishing times.
From round 2 onwards, the system of determining the nightly stage victor is different from the opening night. The winner is the participant who improves their finishing time the most each night. Straight from the off in the second round, it became evident that the chatting became less and the overall pace was up a notch or 2. The battle with the front running speedsters was brilliant as 4 athletes went toe to toe and only 5 seconds separated the speeding quartet when crossing the finish line. Timmy O’Connell dipped under the 27 minute mark, recording the fastest time of the night in 26:55. Ailbe Cummins finished 1 second behind with Paddy Ryan a further second in arrears. Challenge debutant Paul O’Brien lay down a marker for future rounds, completing the course in 27 minutes flat.
Another brilliant battle developed on the night when only 5 seconds separated another 5 athletes. Henry Groome hit the tape in 32:48, Mark Stapleton in 32:49, Denis Ryan in 32:50, Martin Fahy in 32:51 and Patricia Ryan in 32:53.
Pride of place on the night went to Alan Kelly when winning the stage by clipping 9 minutes and 7 seconds off his previous nights effort. Patricia Ryan claimed second place on the night, Joe Kennedy put in a hugely impressive performance to claim third spot. Fourth on the night was Denis Ryan with Claire Mockler completing the top 5.
Following the opening 2 rounds, there is a 3 way tie at the top of the league ladder. The trio of Claire Mockler, Michael O’Brien and Ailbe Cummins are the table toppers on 18pts followed by Paddy Ryan and George Ryan on 19pts. Patricia and Denis Ryan are both on 25pts, Michael Murray is a further 2 points back with a total of 27, Mark Stapleton is on 29pts while Tom Shanahan and Henry Groome are all square on 30 pts.
The Marathon Challenge continues every Tuesday night under light on the track at the new hurling pitch. All runners and walkers are welcome to come along and participate. It’s an 8 o’clock start each night with a warm up getting under way at 7:40pm. Registration begins at 7:15pm with a fee of €2 each night (under 16’s are free).
