On Monday some time after 12:30 Tom Enright completed the ultimate goal of running 100 Official marathons. Shortly afterwards in the company of his many friends from BMOH, North Cork AC and MCI, he was presented with his 100 Medal and Singlet’s for both Ireland and the UK by Ray O’Connor in the River Lee Hotel. Tom has decided to call an end to his Marathon endeavors but luckily he will still be tackling some of the shorter distances which should present him the opportunity to wear these singlets with pride. Tom will be missed in the marathon running community where he has acted as both a mentor and pacer to many a runner up and down the country over the last 12 years.
Kenneth Rogers won the Sixmilebridge 10K last night in emphatic fashion in a time of 31:56. He was followed home by Julio Cesar Castro in 33:50 with local BMOH runner Jame Liddane close behind in 3rd place. The ladies race was an all Ennis Track affair and Imogen Cotter produce a fantastic run of 38:11 to hold off the challenge of Anna Grealish and Cushla Brid Hehir. This ensured that Ennis Track took the Team Event this year, which consisted of Liam Naughton, Martin Grealish, Imogen Cotter and Anna Grealish.
The 5K Family Fun Run however took center stage where are bigger then expected runners coming to support our two designated charities St’ Finnachta’s School and the Aoife Sage EDS Treatment Fund.
