Notes

Note: Cork Athletics regularly received queries as to why BHAA and Unregistered races are not included in the Leaderboards. Answer: While considerable numbers of Athletics Ireland members are also BHAA members, the BHAA, and their events are not part of Athletics Ireland, so are not included.

When it comes to unregistered events, these don't belong to any athletics organisation. Most have dubious safety and organisational standards, and have little or no experience in organising races - it's not what they do on a regular basis.

 

In addition, the vast majority of these race courses have not been measured - a 5k held during summer 2018 came out as 2.93 Miles, instead of 3.11 Miles, a difference of almost 290m. Inclusion of such events would make a nonsense of the Leaderboards.   ...as for a PB on such a course, you'll really just be fooling yourself!

So..If you want to get on the Leaderboards, Run in Registered Athletics Ireland races. They'll be listed on our Calendar

50 Years Ago - When John Buckley Beat The Olympic Champion – Guest Article by John Walshe

1969 - John Buckley Beats Olympic Champion Mohammed Gammoudi in Ballincollig


Guest Article by John Walshe

irish runner archive john buckley tullamore aLeader of the Pack - John Buckley leads the 'Peleton' in Tullamore, from the Irish runner Archives

 

St Patrick’s Day in 1969 fell on a Monday and the weekend was marred by torrential rain and gale-force winds. The Dr Harty Cup final, between Coláiste Chríost Rí and St Finbarr’s, Farranferris, was just one of the many sporting events that fell victim to the weather.

But, despite the conditions, a crowd of around 7,000 gathered in Ballincollig, where the International Military Cross-Country Championships were being staged. Many had travelled to see a man who, just five months previously, had won the 5,000m Gold medal, at the Mexico Olympic Games.

Instead they witnessed an inspirational performance by one of their own, 22-year-old John Buckley, from nearby Blarney, not only led the Irish team to the silver medals, but also notched-up an illustrious victory over that Olympic champion, Tunisian, Mohammed Gammoudi.

Known as the CISM Meeting, the International Military Championship came to Ireland in 1969, and the eight National teams taking part included squads from Tunisia and Morocco, the latter having finished in the top three, for the previous six years.

There was also a prominent team from the United States, selected from all branches of the armed forces. It included former indoor three-mile record holder Tracy Smith from California, and Bill Clark, runner-up in the previous year’s Boston Marathon.

However, there was no doubting the star attraction was the defending champion, Gammoudi. Born in Sidi Ach, Tunisia, he was one of the pioneers of the African distance running revolution. One of the favourites for the 10,000m at those Mexico Olympics, Gammoudi was out-sprinted by Naftali Temu of Kenya, and Mamo Wolde from Ethiopia, leaving him with the Bronze medal.

A few days later, in the final of the 5,000m, three runners were in contention at the bell, with Gammoudi leading Temu and another Kenyan, Kip Keino. The last lap was run at a furious pace, and although the two Kenyans gave charge, Gammoudi held on to his lead to take the Gold.

The Irish challenge for Ballincollig was made up in the main from members of the FCA, as John Buckley explained. “I suppose you could say we were headhunted because of our running talent, I can’t say we did much military training,” he recalls with a smile. “We felt we had a very good team, with the likes of Sean O’Sullivan who was the National champion, Tom O’Riordan, Danny McDaid from Donegal, Kildare-man Jim Timoney, and of course Matt Murphy from Rising Sun.”

At the start of that winter’s cross-country season, Buckley had two main aims - to make the Irish national team for the International (now World) Championships in Glasgow, and to get on the Irish military team for Ballincollig. His training had gone well, clocking up an average of 100 miles a week.

The St Finbarr’s man was in great form coming up to the All-Ireland, but came down with a bad ‘flu the week of the race. Recalling that race of five decades ago, Buckley said he took part against his better judgement: “I ran in the nationals having been dying with the ‘flu the previous week. I should have easily made the Irish team but I finished well down and didn’t make it.”  

One week later, in the trial for the military team, he felt a good deal better and came in third. “I really wanted to prove a point in Ballincollig, so there was a fair bit of pressure coming up to the race,” remembers Buckley. “There was great hype in the build-up, with Gammoudi coming. I had met him two years earlier in Luxembourg, and had my photo taken with him and his brother, who also ran.”

On the Sunday morning when Buckley woke early and heard the rain beating on the window, he was happy. “I had a kind of a reputation, and in my own head as well, that I’d run well in softer going so I was quite happy to see the conditions. I didn’t feel intimidated by the likes of Gammoudi, as I didn’t expect to finish ahead of him. I got away with most of the leaders, the confidence was high and of course we had huge support on the day which gave us all a boost.”

Up front, the Moroccans were well in control, with victory going to 22-year-old unknown Ou Moha Bassou, who defeated his countryman Haddou Jabor by a foot, in a thrilling sprint to the line. Hannachi of Tunisia and Joachim Leiss, the West German holder of the European 1,500m indoor title, finished within three seconds of the winner, to take the third and fourth spots.

The winning time was 32 minutes and 32 seconds, with Buckley crossing the line just 23 seconds later, for a brilliant ninth, two places ahead of his team-mate Sean O’Sullivan, with Gammoudi following in 12th position.

Tom O’Riordan came 15th, Matt Murphy 19th, Jim Timoney 25th, Danny McDaid 26th, another Corkman, Pat O’Connell 42nd, and Eddie Spillane 46th. The Irish had a total of 105 points, giving them the silver medals ahead of Tunisia, France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, and the fancied USA, who never got to grips with the conditions.

“It was one of my most enjoyable and memorable runs ever, and I’ll never forget the atmosphere,” recalls Buckley, now the proprietor of one of Cork’s most recognisable and popular sports shop, John Buckley Sports, on Mulgrave Road, just across teh river from the Opera House.

Stephanie Cotter powering to victory in the NCAA Div II Women's Mile, chased by Roisin Flanagan

 

Just days after being named RMAC Freshman of the Year, Stephanie Cotter, Adams State University and West Muskerry AC, made a huge impact on the US National stage yesterday, when winning the NCAA Div II Women's Indoor Mile Title, in a personal best time of 4:50.27.  She had ran a collegiate best of 4:52.40 on Day 1, and she shattered that time by over two seconds, to secure her first National title.

 

Stephanie's victory, with college-mate Roisin Flanagan in second place, garnered Adams State University a total of thirteen points - seven for Stephanie's win and a further six for Roisin's runner-up spot - helped Adams State University to victory in the team standings. The Adams State Women's team earned the college's fifth indoor National crown, which was highlighted by three individual National Champions on day one, and multiple All-American finishes. The dominant performance of Adams State, on day two, showed through, as the Grizzlies scored a total of 87 points, for a 23 points victory margin.

The 2019 National Championship Title is the college's fifth overall, in NCAA program history, and their first since the 2016-17 season. The Grizzlies 87 points and 23-point victory are also special numbers too. The 87 team points is the biggest for the women at the National Championships, and point differential is their largest margin of victory.

CIT Athletics Seminar 5 2019 - How to Avoid Dropout

How to Avoid Athlete Dropout - CIT Athletics Seminar #5 2019

Track Admin Building, CIT

7:30pm Tuesday March 12th 2019


cit athletics seminar 5 2019 how to avoid dropout

This seminar is an essential for any Coach or Administrator, in ANY sport!


The 5th of 6 CIT Athletics Seminars in this years series takes place in the Track-Side Admin Building at CIT Track, on Tuesday next, March 12th, at 7:30pm. To register contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 0867700588


Some the Topics:

  • "Supporting Athletes from Junior to Senior Level"
  • "How to avoid dropout"
  • "Junior to Senior Transition"
  • "One of Irish Sports most important issues?"

Athlete dropout, most especially in the young teen and Junior to Senior Transition is something that is prevalent across ALL sports in Ireland. This dropout hurts Irish sport, by draining it of future athletes of all levels, not just the potential stars. In many ways more worrying is the alarming rise in weight problems and obesity in Ireland, particularly among young, and indeed, the very young. We owe it to our sport(s) and to Irish society in general, that everyone in sport does their utmost to retain athletes and keep them active.

 

Quote

Citing an unnamed colleague, " The benefits of running by far outweigh the benefits of not-running"  You can substitute your own sport here, where it says running.

 

The dropout in Athletics in Cork can be seen vividly in the graph below, which shows the age distribution for registered athletes in Cork at the end of December 2018. There is, literally, a wasteland between the ages of 15/16 and the early thirties.  This is a major cause for concern both from a general athletics point of view, and also from a public health perspective. If the transition can be managed better, to increase retention rates, the return to sport and to society would be immeasurable - a Win-Win-Wim situation.

40 Years Ago - Killeagh Half-Marathon 1979

40 YEARS AGO – WHEN A HALF-MARATHON TOOK PLACE AT KILLEAGH


Guest Article by John Walshe

 This article, by John Walshe appeared in the Midleton & Dist News/Youghal News, on March 6th 2019

 

glenbower half marathon certificate 1979s
Race Certificate from Killeagh Half-Marathon 1979

Webmasters Note: Many people of 'a certain age' will remember these certificates which were given to finishers, at a time long before the internet, when results were, if you were lucky enough to get them at all, might be available, several weeks after the event, in handwritten and photocopied format.  A big race might have 80 to 120 participants.

Next Sunday sees the fourth Killeagh GAA Club Four-Mile Road Race, taking place at 11am, with the walkers heading off an hour earlier.

 

Killeagh GAA Club 4 Mile Route & Course Details

The start for next Sunday's race is on Cork Road, and the route takes the competitors up towards Mogeely, before turning left after two miles, towards Garranjames and Clashdermot, finishing at the GAA complex. No doubt, one almost-full lap of this circuit will be enough for most people, but it is no harm recalling when a half-marathon (13.1 miles) took place around the same roads, consisting of three full circuits.

 

The occasion was Sunday night May 6th, 1979, and the race was just one of the many events that took place on the day of the famous Glenbower May Sunday Festival. The race was organised by two local athletes, Peter Lee and Willie O’Mahony, both members of the Youghal club at the time.

 

Willie O’Mahony’s contribution to the sport of athletics in the East Cork region has been immense, both as a competitor, administrator (Treasurer of the East Cork Board/Division since 1971), and event organiser. Peter Lee – who used to live beside the start line of Sunday’s race – was one of the few from the Cork area to run the inaugural Dublin Marathon in 1980, which he completed in 3:02:53, going on to run 2:53:29 the following year.  

 

The Glenbower Half-Marathon, as it was called, was somewhat of a step into the unknown, as, in 1979, road racing in Cork was just getting established. The running boom that would follow from that Dublin Marathon was still almost two years in the future. As an example, the Cork to Cobh 15-mile race which took place a week before Killeagh had just 41 finishers – all of them men.

 

The half-marathon started at 6.45pm, and took in the three laps of today’s course, and it had been measured by the calibrated bicycle method, one of the first in the country, outside of the Ballycotton races to be so measured. Prizes were on offer for the first four finishers, first two teams of three, and the first three novices, confined to Cork. There was also a signed time certificate presented to each finisher.  

 

Entry Fee = 30 Pence!

Entry fee was probably in the region of 30 pence - it’s worth noting that the entry for the Dublin Open Marathon later that summer was advertised as 50p - and while half-marathons nowadays attract numbers in the thousands (with corresponding astronomical entry fees), the result of that Glenbower Half-Marathon of 1979 lists just 14 finishers.

 

There were one or two non-finishers on the three-lap course; these included a man for whom such a decision to drop-out nowadays would be unthinkable. However, it should be noted that 16-year-old Denis McCarthy (then of the Youghal club) had already taken part in the Cork County U17 3000m track championship, earlier in the day, finishing fifth in 9:57.5 behind Finbarr McGrath (Leevale), and future international Richard O’Flynn (Bandon). Denis had also taken part in the high jump where the records show, unfortunately, that he failed to register a height.

 

After the first of the three laps on that May Sunday evening, four runners had broken away. There were Liam O’Brien and Paul Mulholland, from Midleton, and the Leevale pair of Jerry Murphy and the late Dick Hodgins, winner of the National Marathon four years before. On the second time round, Hodgins had been dropped, and with about a half-mile to go, O’Brien finally edged ahead of Murphy, but the margin on the line was just two seconds, 70:34 to 70:36. Mulholland finished strongly to take third in 71:03, over three minutes clear of Hodgins.

 

In the team race, Leevale suffered a rare defeat, as Midleton came out on top by three points, the team consisting of O’Brien (first), Mulholland (third) and Albert De Cogan (fifth). For the first two, the race was more a means to an end, as it served two contrasting purposes. To Liam O’Brien, it was probably no more than what would be referred to nowadays as a tempo-run, as he was preparing for the track season. A couple of months later he would win the second of his eight national steeplechase titles, his time of 8:52.6 being a big improvement on the 9:07.5 he had recorded the year before.

 

Jerry Murphy was no doubt using the 13 miles as a ‘bleed-out’ for the carbohydrate-loading diet prevalent at the time, as the following Sunday, on his 29th birthday, he would win the Munster Marathon in a time of 2:28:47, ahead of Leevale clubmate Liam Horgan (2:31:44), and Michael Joyce of St Finbarr’s (2:39:16).

 

In honour of Peter Lee and Willie O’Mahony who were ahead of their time in the promotion of what was probably Cork’s first half-marathon, and to remember those inaugural runners, these were the 14 finishers on that May Sunday evening almost four decades ago:
