Race winner Ricky Burke, St. Finbarr's AC, crosses the finish line


The Carrigaline 10k Road Race, held on Sunday, May 12th, was won in fine style by Rickie Burke of St. Finbarr's. His time of 30:43 gave him a 15-second advantage over team-mate John Buckley, with Michael Carey of Leevale taking third place.
St. Finbarr's domination of the race extended to the ladies' event also, where they captured all the honours, with Catherine Hourihane winning handsomely in 36:10 from Marion Lyons and Joan Hough. As if just to emphasise the "Barrs” supremacy, Rose Crockett filled out the fourth place, and the ladies joined the men in taking the team honours.

Run in bright sunshine, on a very flat out and back course, the event provided many athletes with personal best times for the distance, and 157 athletes completed the event, to collect their specially commissioned pottery plaques. Burke and Buckley led the field to the turn at halfway, and, at about 6k, Rickie began to open up a gap that he was never to relinquish, holding on to finish without any undue pressure. Derry O'Driscoll ran yet another fine race to finish 10th overall, and took the over 40's vets' race.

The promoting club, Carrigaline Striders, would like to thank all the runners who turned out to support this, their first road race, and look forward to the repeat event next year, when, hopefully, an even bigger field will turn out to attempt to take the Carrigaline Sports Shop Perpetual Trophy from this year's winner.
