Ballyshannon 5k, 8th May 2009. Report & Results

Sligo A.C was well represented in Ballyshannon on friday night last, 8th May, for the Ballyshannon 5k (part of the Donegal 2009 Race Series). In all, 12 athletes, 6 male and 6 female made the trip. After a very blustery & unsettled day the weather seemed to ease a bit towards evening time. By the time the race began at 7.30pm the clouds had lifted altough the stiff breeze had not abated & this proved to be troublesome especially over the middle part of the fast course. However the club still managed to pick up some prizes with Tanya McHale & Mel Casserly achieving 1st place in their respective caegories whilst Ultan McNasser got third. Rory Connor also ran a fine race achieving a personal best over the distance.
SligoAC overall positions: 4th: Ultan McNasser, 16.49. 6th: Alan Kearins, 17.11. 15th: Steve Finnegan, 18.08. 17th: Mel Casserly, 18.25. 22nd: Mark Burns, 18.46. 30th: Rory Connor, 19.19. 43rd: Cindy McCarthy, 20.12. 56th: Tanya Mchale, 21.25. 60th: Rose Tully, 21.46. 81st: Laura O'Shea, 25.16. 82nd: Jill Connor, 25.29. 84th: Mary Durcan, 25.43.
