Carina makes it two in a row!

The club was well represented in the 300 strong field of runners in the Carney 10k today in very cold and blustery conditions.

Five out of the top ten positions in the men's field were filled by club members while Carina Clarke made it two wins in a row in the Road Race League with a pb of 38.24. Third woman home was Mari Johnston, also of Sligo AC, in a pb too of 39.57.

Richard Gorman 2nd overall with Liam Feely winner and Stephen Prentice third overall with Mel Casserly.
Richard Gorman set the pace for the men, coming home second overall in 33.32 with Seamus Somers 4th in 35.06 and Michael O'Connell 5th in 36.12. Jonathan Hill was 9th in 36.40 with Ultan McNasser 10th in 36.49. Ross Downey was a very impressive 12th overall in 37.10.

Mari Johnston (3rd woman overall) and Carina Clarke (first woman overall) in today's Carney 10k with new pbs.
There were category prizes for several club members. Carina Clarke followed up her Tubbercurry 10k success with another impressive win in Carney, leading the women's field from the off. Mari was next as third woman overall with Roseanne Mitchell the next club member home in 42.29 followed by Cathy McCarthy in a new pb of 44.51, Catherine Bradley in 45.18, Deirdre Deering in 45.36, Pauline Henry in 47.06, Fiona Fahey Gilmartin in a pb of 47.12 and Ashling Cawley in 47.26.
