Cork Athletics Registration Figures - April 2017

Cork Athletics Monthly Registration Figures - April 2017

 

Cork Athletics Registration Plate 170502

 

Cork Athletics registrations, as at April 30th, stood at 6,782, 9.82% up on the corresponding 2016 figure of 6,175.  The figure in the plate above, 6,846 is today's figure, May 2nd 2017.  These figures demonstrate the sustained growth in Cork Athletics' Registered membership.


However established clubs, and their athletes, are reminded that unregistered athletes are NOT covered by the Athletics Ireland insurance for any purpose whatsoever, leaving those athletes and clubs in a precarious position.

 

 

Total Registrations April 30th 2017

Leevale AC top the standings, by a small margin, from Bandon AC.  Both clubs stand well ahead of all the other clubs, while Ballymore-Cobh AC and Midleton AC both exceed the 300 registered members mark.  Seven more clubs have over 200 members, while a further sixteen clubs have over 100 members.

Sonia O’Sullivan 3K Challenge

At the 1987 Cork City Sports, a young Sonia O’ Sullivan set a National Junior Record of 9:01, in the 3000m. This performance put Sonia on the map, and launched the career of the greatest athlete Ireland has ever produced.

Thirty years on, this Junior Record still stands. For the 2017 Cork City Sports, Sonia is laying down a challenge to all clubs to enter a team of junior girls to run a 3k relay, in an attempt to break her thirty-year-old 9:01 record.

The team must consist of five junior female athletes, from the same club, who will each run 600m. Cork City Sports is delighted to include this 3K challenge in the 2017 programme.

Walks and Marathon Selections for World Championships in London

Heffernan to lead endurance squad in London

Athletics Ireland is delighted to announce initial selections for the race walk and marathon for the World Athletics Championships in London in August.

Robert Heffernan (Togher) will lead a strong team of 50km race walkers alongside Brendan Boyce (Letterkenny) and Alex Wright (Leevale).

There is a full complement of men in the marathon with Mick Clohisey (Raheny Shamrock), Paul Pollock (Annadale Striders) and Sean Hehir (Rathfarnham WSAF) selected.

On the women’s side Fionnuala McCormack (Kilcoole) and Claire McCarthy (Leevale) have been selected for the classic distance.

High Performance Director Paul McNamara was pleased with the selections and said:

“I’m delighted to see an increase in the number of athletes selected for the pure endurance events at World Championship level, and the earlier selection date in 2017 allows selected athletes to now turn the focus of their attention to specific preparation for August’s World Championship.

"The Walks have proved to be the most successful event group at major championships for some time now and Rob, Alex and Brendan are a world class trio of 50km competitors who will make a big impact in London.

"I’m excited that the men’s Marathon sees a full complement of three athletes selected for the second global championships in-a-row. Paul and Mick will have benefitted enormously from their experience in Rio while Sean deserves particular commendation for his breakthrough in London this past Sunday.

"On the women’s side, Fionnuala had a superb Olympic Marathon, but may yet choose to focus on 10,000m for London 2017, while Claire will make her first appearance on the global stage after her breakthrough in Berlin in September.  It’s important to acknowledge the contribution of Marathon Mission as a factor in the rapidly improving quality and depth in Irish marathoning and Athletics Ireland look forward to supporting them in this regard and to a fruitful relationship for the benefit of our elite athletes and coaches going forward.”

 

World Championships Marathon and 50km Walks Selection

The Selection of the Marathon and the 50km Walks for the World Championships to take place in London from 4-13 August 2017 is as follows:

Road Relays Report and Results

Day of drama as Queens and Raheny triumph at Road Relays

Drama and excitement. It’s what we’ve come to expect at the Irish Life Health National Road Relays in Raheny today (April 23) where Queen’s University women and Raheny Shamrock men came out on top in the senior races.

From the get go there was big changes in position with Annmarie McGlynn, who had a busy afternoon, guiding Letterkenny AC to the F35 title over 4 miles, 1-2-1 mile format, in a record time of 22:32.

The F50 women were also in action alongside their F35 counterparts and it was the Raheny Shamrock team of Adrienne Atkins, Orla Gormley and Nora Byrne who brought home the gold in 25:22 from Dundrum South Dublin in 25:44 and Finn Valley in 27:42.

The masters’ men were next and Raheny Shamrock were first across the line in the M35 in a new record of 19:28 with Ian Conroy getting them started followed by Michael McMahon and John Dunne on anchor.

St Finbarr’s team of Michael Murphy, Cathal O’Connell and Ken Devine clawed back Raheny in the M50 race with an excellent last leg by Ken Devine who clocked 4:59 to win gold for the Cork team in 21:13 overall. Raheny had to settle for silver in 21:21 with Rathafarnham WSAF third in 22:22.

This set the stage for the senior races with roads in Raheny lined with people on both sides and a palpable buzz in the air. Leevale came in as defending champions but it didn’t go to script. They were right in the hunt after Carol Finn’s first leg but no one accounted for Queen’s University who made their debut in the event. Emma Mitchell was in sparkling form on the 2 mile leg running 10:18 having taken over from Sinead Sweeney. This teed up Rebecca Henderson for a surprise victory.

The final race of the day in the senior men’s 8 mile saw high drama in the first lap of the first leg. The leading pack were bunched around 1km in when they came together and it saw Raheny Shamrock’s Mark Kirwan and Ennis Track’s Karl Fitzmaurice take a heavy fall losing track on the main pack.

Kirwan was visibly in pain, later learning that he had broken his collarbone, but gathered himself to be in touching distance of the leaders at the changeover for the one mile leg. Kieran Kelly took over and blitzed the 1 lap circuit in 4:20 to put the defending champions back in the lead.

It was then down to the crucial 3 mile leg with Kevin Dooney now carrying the mantle with Donore Harriers’ John Travers in hot pursuit. Travers was in form and sped around the 3 mile leg in 14:04 to equal the course record and bringing Donore into the lead. Dooney hung on gamely and handed over to his brother Conor who had to chase down Eric Keogh on the last 2 mile leg.

With one lap to go Keogh looked menacingly calm sitting in behind Conor Dooney who had turned from hunter to hunted. The aficionados were awaiting the return of the duo leaning towards Keogh but it was Dooney who had enough at the finish to hold off by one second and guide home the host club in 37:38. Donore Harriers had to settle for silver in 37:39 with Kilkenny City Harriers third in 38:10. Raheny Shamrock won the Paddy Boland trophy for the best overall trophy on a day where competition and participation combined seamlessly.
