Updates

Summary of Irish performances will be updated periodically here, during the day

A fine performance from Ruby Millet saw her miss the Long Jump final by a single centimeter, but a great showing from the St Abban's AC athlete, who finished in 13th place overall with a jump of 6.09m. The top twelve progress to the final

 

Reality Osuoha clocks 21.77sec, to finish fifth in his 200m semi-final. "It wasn't the best of my races but to make the semi-final of the Europeans, I'm pretty happy. I'll take a lot from this and become a better athlete."

 

Aaron Sexton is the fastest qualifier for today's 200m Final, at 5:35pm this evening, after clocking 21.13sec when winning his Semi-Final. "Everything I've got. It's the last one - give it everything."

 

It's a stunning National Under-20 record for our women's 4x400m team, who clocked 3:41.28 to finish fourth. Simone Lalor, Miriam Daly, Laura Nally and Rachel McCann SMASH the Irish U20 record with 3:41.28 to move on to tomorrow's Final

 

Tough work, making a European final, but the Irishmen, Ciaran Carthy, Adam Hughes, Jack Raftery and David Ryan, are marching on to the 4x400m Final after clocking 3:13.72 to finish third in their 4x400m heat

 

Shay McEvoy reflects on a brilliant year, after finishing 14th, in the men's 3000m Final, in 8:38.03,  "I wouldn't have thought I'd be here a year ago so on the whole, I'm very happy."

 

Deirdre Murray had good reason to be proud, after finishing 7th in the European 400m hurdles Semi-Final, in 60.44 sec, "I went for it. I did what I could. If I was told at the start of the year that I'd be here running these times I'd be delighted."

 

Sommer Lecky bowed out of the High Jump Final, with a best of 1.84m, finishing in joint-fifth. "I'm kind of gutted because I knew 1.87m was in me today but you have to perform on the day. But I can take this championships away with me and it'll definitely help me progress."

 

Heartbreak for Aaron Sexton who finished fourth in the Men's 200m Final, clocking the same time, 21.18 sec, as the Bronze medallist, being pipped in the photofinish. "I left everything out there."

 

52.72 sec for Davicia Patterson, and again it's just off the medals, with a 4th place finish

Can YOU Help Promote the Mini-Marathon?

 

Cork Athletics is asking clubs and individual members to help spread the word. We would like everyone who can help in any way, to post copies of our flyer in clubhouses, training facilities, gyms, local shops and supermarkets - anywhere you think might be a suitable location....But Please ask permission to post!

If you have contacts with local charities, in particular, please let them know about the event. The biggest beneficiaries from the Mini-Marathon are the many charities who, through their volunteers taking part in the event, raise an estimated €2M to €3M for their chosen charities.

 

We have a limited number of A3 posters available, but we are going to print smaller A5 size versions. However we need to know how may you think you'll need. Bear in mind that many shops and facilities remove all notices periodically. It's now 10 weeks to the Mini-Marathon, so you may need up to, say, 8 A5 flyers to cover one location, allowing for a weekly replacement.

Enter the Echo-Mini-Marathon 2019



This is a Major fundraiser for Cork Athletics, without which the Board could not provide such as T&F, Road and XC Championships, Coaching Courses, Equipment & Safety Grants, organise Cork teams of all categories, and a myriad of other events & activities. It is also the source of funding for Cork Athletics facilities, particularly it's grounds at Riverstick, and, going forward, will, it is hoped, fund other future facilities.

 

This event is our Life-Blood - Please Help!

So...How are we doing so far?

We're doing pretty well, but we DO need YOUR help. Entries, to date, are up 25% on last year, and 85% up on the 2017 figure, but we really need to boost our event.

 

The Echo Womens Mini-Marathon is organised and hosted by Cork Athletics, and sponsored by Cork's Echo, for the 38th year.

The proceeds help Cork Athletics fund its competitions and Championships. In addition it enables the Board to organise training, in coaching, coach education, child protection and safety, along with grants for athletics related equipment.  The Board also organises transport and accomodation for representative Cork teams.

Cork Athletics is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation. The Officers, Committee members and others who help to run the business of the Board are all volunteers, who give their time and expertise, free of charge, for the benefit of the athletes and the sport.

Cork Athletics is a designated Sports Body, Registered GS Number 3014 - Cork County Board (Athletics Association of Ireland) - under Section 235 Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997

CIT Hammer Cage Back in Service - July 2019

CIT Throwing Cage Has been Repaired...BUT With a Caveat

 

Message from Liam O'Brien (July 9th 2019)

 

 hammer cage wind damage april 2018

The hammer/discus cage at CIT Track has is now been repaired.

Going forward, the onus is on us, the athletic fraternity, to ensure that the facility is looked after properly - not the CIT groundsman.

With that in mind, there will be a brief in-service on the raising and lowering of the netting, at 7pm, on Monday evening next, July 15th, prior to the Graded League event.

Only coaches/officials/throwers who have attended this or a future in-service will be entitled to use the cage.

 

Most of the past damage to the cage has been caused by the net being left in the raised position for extended periods of time.

To avoid future damage to the cage, the net must be lowered after each usage.  That means that ALL USERS OF THE CAGE WILL HAVE TO FULLY RAISE AND LOWER THE NET BEFORE AND AFTER EACH SESSION. This might be an inefficient way of conducting our business here, but as the primary users of the track we have to take ownership of the upkeep of the facilities.


It is hoped that this process will be self policing by the relatively small but dedicated number of individuals who regularly the cage.

 

Webmasters Note:
As Liam said, the past damage has been caused due to the netting being left up during stormy conditions. People may feel that netting, with all the holes will allow wind to easily pass thro'. Unfortunately not so - In high winds, the wind behaves almost like a solid, so, on hitting the cage, complete with netting, something must give. 

 

cit track cage netting

The Cage has been damaged at least twice in the past 12 months, and, as a consequence, has been out of action for extended periods. The last period has lasted several months.  However it appears that people have NOT learnt. Last Thursday, when I arrived at the track the netting was up, but nobody was using the cage. This evening, the cage was up again, but, again, nobody was using it.  The netting is being left up again!

We ARE going to have more storms...and if the netting is left up, the cage will be damaged again. This CANNOT continue. There are no malicious vandals going into the Track arena when everyone has gone home. The Netting is being left up by people in the Throwing Community.  As Liam says, it is incumbent on you to ensure that the Netting is raised and lowered each time. If the cage is damaged again, it is the Throwing Community that will suffer - as in the past few months, the other events continue as usual.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
