Adidas Cork City Marathon

25th May 1986

By Michael Joyce


Billy Gallagher, who competes with Cavan AC, and is a native of Ballaghadareen (Co. Roscommon), won the Adidas Cork City Marathon for the second year in a row, on May 25. His winning time of 2 hours 20 minutes 12 seconds was slower than last year, but, nevertheless, he finished over four minutes ahead of Tom Brouder (West Limerick) with Mick Carey (Leevale) a further minute behind in third.

From the gun, Gallagher went to the front with Brouder. They were chased by Carey, Seamus Cregan (Croom) and Eric Crockett (St. Finbarrs). The leading bunch went through three miles in 15:38.


Gallagher and Brouder were clear after five miles, and, at six miles, Brouder was dropped. Gallagher went through half way in 68:40. He had a long lead at 20 miles (1:45) and was able to coast home to an easy victory from Brouder, who always looked comfortable ahead of Mick Carey with Gerard Mullane from Doon, Co. Limerick, moving up late in the race to take fourth place ahead of 48-year-old Derry O’Driscoll (St. Finbarrs), so consistent in finishing fifth for the second year in a row in an excellent time of 2:34:27. Brouder won the Munster Championship.


I was delighted to see our good friend John Walshe (Ballycotton) record a personal best in ninth place (2:36:31), while another super vet performance came from Flor O’Leary (St. Finbarrs), who won the over-50 prize in a great time of 2:43.

Like the men’s race, the Ladies Race was won by a clear margin. Marian Lyons (St. Finbarr’s) was competing in her fourth marathon. She had finished third in this event last year and was the clear favourite to win in front of her home crowd. Marian, who is the mother of two young children, was an Irish international cross-country competitor at Chepstow back in the mid-seventies. Marian is the second eldest of a family of sixteen from the Northside of Cork and her victory here was not just very deserving but also very popular.


She was in control of the race from the very start, and, at six miles (38:40), was already four minutes ahead of Brigid McCabe (Mullingar). She was six minutes clear at half way, and kept increasing her lead up to 18 miles, when she appeared to run into some difficulties. The margin had been reduced to three minutes at 20 miles, when Brigid McCabe herself appeared to falter to leave Mrs. Lyons on course for victory, in 3:01:05.


Miss McCabe finished in 3:09:02, with Nora Joyce (no relation), who comes from Rathcormac, in Co. Cork, and now lives in Dublin, coming in a creditable third place, a further six minutes back.

SPONSORS

This year’s Marathon was, once again, sponsored by Adidas. For the first time in the history of the race, the event was not held on Easter Sunday. Entries were down slightly, but I believe that this is because of the confusion surrounding the race. I feel that the attitude of B.L.E., in not arranging to have the National Championship held in conjunction with the Cork race, was a great mistake. The entry of about 90 in the National Championships, which were transferred to Portlaoise, and which, I believe, had no sponsor, reflected a mini-disaster on the part of B.L.E. To make matters even worse, eight of the top 11 in the National Marathon were from Munster.


There is no doubt that Michael O’Connell and Adidas have been exceptionally generous to the sport of athletics in Cork, but B.L.E., at National level, do very little to encourage Adidas to continue their sponsorship.
