Results of the Poll....'Should there be an Over 35 section for men in all Road Races'
This poll started off some time back when John Dunphy of Midleton AC posed this question and a fair bit of a debate followed. See HERE.

The poll was on the website for just over 1 month and thanks to everyone who took the trouble to vote.The result is that of those who had a preference, 58% voted YES.........and 42% voted NO.

Certainly, 58% is a yes but not a resounding yes. It could probably be said that a 'slight' majority support the idea.

So, with that result in mind, it is now up to race organisers to decide for themselves if they want to introduce a category for men in the Over 35 category or not.
