Report by Ian O'Sullivan

WIT Women and UL Men dominate the 8th edition of the Munster Universities Road Relay Championships

Taking place in picturesque settings beside the Curraheen river, and adjacent to the CIT campus, this year’s Munster Universities Road Relay Championships, the 8th instalment, threw up two very exciting races.

With teams of three runners covering legs of 2km, 1km and 3km, this event provides an ideal opportunity for the Munster Universities to fine-tune their preparations for the forthcoming IUAA Intervarsity Road Relay Championships, which take place, as always, at Maynooth University, on Saturday November 17th. This year teams from IT Carlow were again welcome guests, with UCC again unfortunately unable to field teams.


WIT led the women’s race from gun to tape, with Orla O'Connor (2km, 7:03) and Sally Forristal (3km, 10:51)) recording the fastest legs of the day. Ably backed up by Mollie Hutchinson, this is WIT’s first time to win this event since its inception in 2011. Reversing their finishing positions from 2017, UL finished in second place, with IT Carlow third. As she did last year, IT Carlow’s Eimear Loughlin recorded the fastest 1km leg of the day (3:35).


The men’s race was a much tighter affair, with UL A, UL B and IT Carlow’s teams swapping the lead continually throughout, before UL’s B team finally prevailed. The gap between first and third place was only three seconds, with UL A just about holding off IT Carlow’s fast finishing John FitzSimons, for second place. The fastest 3km leg (9:04) accolade will be some consolation for FitzSimons. Stephen Holland of the host club recorded the fastest 1km split of the day (2:46), with UL’s Robert Hewison the only athlete over 2km (5:58) to dip under the 6 minute barrier.
