Second male home for the club was Michael O'Connell in 1.22.21 followed in third by Rory Kelly in 1.23.08. Fourth was Damien Kennedy in 1.23.31, fifth was Conal Sexton in 1.24.47, sixth- Declan Foley in 1.28.54, seventh- Paul Deering in 1.29.17, eighth-Nicky Davey in 1.29.50, ninth- Michael Clancy in 1.29.53 and tenth Conor Healy in 1.38.14.

The next big race on the calendar is the ten mile Coast to Coast challenge on September 29th which again will see the club out in full force. It will be an ideal preparation for the Dublin City Marathon or the upcoming cross country season. Enter here.
