Summer 1 mile Series: As the rain came down, driven by a strong breeze, athletes were wondering if round 3 of our summer mile series would go ahead on Friday evening last in Knocknagree, held it was and it proved to be a great contest. Tommy O’Brien Riocht AC, who has been the leader on series 1 & 2 was again favourite to capture the spoils, but anyone didn’t have the remarkable Laura Crowe of Riocht in the reckoning. Laura was in tip top form and was part of a photo finish with Tommy O’Brien. Both were given the same time of 4 min 42 secs. What a race it was. Next Friday evening we go to Ballydesmond for the 4th leg, with registration in Bob’s Bar. Club runners who ran well last Friday evening were 5th Maurice Feehan, 6th Robert Purcell, 9th Anthony Buckley, Shona O’ Brien was 2nd lady, Shona has been called into The National Squad, 7th Caroline Murphy, 8th Katie Buckley, 9th Maggie Buckley. So roll on Friday evening in Ballydesmond . Knocknagree results.
