Results of the Mealagh Valley 10 mile road race...Sun 22nd Feb 2015

It looked early on this morning that conditions for this race were going to be pretty wet with high winds and driving rain. It may have been enough to deter some people from traveling but the heavy rain cleared the south-west of the country by race time.

Just remember when you are looking at the results, this is probably one of the hardest 10 mile road races in the country. As you can see, Elton Heffernan won it but his time of 58:10 would probably be 2-3 minutes quicker on a flatter course.

1 58:10 HEFFERNAN, Elton    Togher AC    M 05:48.9
2 58:32 CORBETT, Michael    St. Finbarrs AC    M 05:51.1
3 59:53 TRACEY, Liam    Watergrasshill AC    M 05:59.2
19 1:12:34 GUINANE, Elaine    Eagle AC    F35    07:15.3
20 1:12:44 BUCKLEY, Sheila Midleton AC F 07:16.3
25 1:14:12 GILROY, Helen    Midleton AC F45    07:25.1

The full results of the 10 mile race are up on the race website.
