Michelle Runs in the 3000m Steeplechase this morning

The very best of luck to Michelle Finn who runs for Ireland in Heat 1 of the 3,000m steeplechase this morning at the Tokyo Olympics (1:40am Irish time). An unbelievable amount of hard work and commitment goes into qualifying and competing. We’ll be up late watching it.

Result: 9th in the heat for Michelle in a time of  9:36.26 which she was disappointed with, but it was 37C at trackside with high humidity. Brutal conditions, and a field that was strung out from the start were never contusive to a fast time. We’re all proud of you here.

RUN from Malin Head to Mizen Head….600+ km

On June 29th 2020, Corkman Barry Sheehan started the challenge to RUN from Malin Head to Mizen Head….600+ km in one week to raise funds for Cappagh Kids.

He is running the equivalent of two marathons per day and will be passing through Millstreet either tomorrow or Saturday.  It will be nice if we could give him a bit of support or even run some of the way with him.

If you are interested you can follow his progress  on the Malin2Mizen for Cappagh Kids Facebook page.

***Event update***

We are disappointed to announce the cancellation of our Willie Neenan Memorial 5 mile road race which was to be held on 26th June next. Due to the current restrictions in place for Covid-19 it was an obvious but difficult decision to make. Please stay safe in these difficult times and lets look forward to next years race.
