Just catching up on a few results...! The 1st round of the John Buckley Sports Graded Track & Field League was held on a very windy track in CIT last Monday, the 23rd of July. There were a number of events on offer.......200m, Long Jump, Shot, 4 x 400m Relay and the 3,000 metres.

The event was organised by St.Finbarr's AC while the sponsor of the event was John Buckley Sports which is one of the longest established running shops in Cork City.

John Buckley Sports 5k.........Coming up next Tuesday evening, the 31st of May at 8pm, the Cork
BHAA in conjunction with John Buckley Sports are holding a 5 km road race on the Centre Park Road / Monaghan Road circuit. This is one of the largest, fastest and most popular 5 km races on the local race calendar and is sure to attract a large crowd.

As well as the usual refreshments, prizes, etc, they will also be handing out a 20% discount voucher for John Buckley Sports at the end of the race. I asked John about this by mail and he told me that there is no time limit on it and the 20% is off anything for sale in his shop regardless of price.

More details on this race in a later post.

Just a comment on the T&F meet at CIT. Great to get a chance to race on the track. There is nearly too many road races in Cork but almost no Track events. The organisation was first class and the results were very accurate with some fast times recorded. Looking foward to these events over the summer.
