Na Piarsaigh Limerick

50K Cycle, 10K Run, 5K Walk

Top 3 finishers of our 10K Geoff DeCourcy(3rd), Paul Fitzgerald(1st), JJ Cremin(2nd)


Our first 50K cycle, run and walk took place on Sunday and proved to be a massive success.
Hundreds of cyclist, runners and walkers descended on Pairc Dromguil for our first ever event of this kind.
Stewards and volunteers were in position from early morning to deal with the crowds as the excitement began to build.
First to leave the club were the cyclists who rolled out on mass just after 10am.
Upwards of 200 cyclists of all different levels hit the road with the Blood Bike Mid West bikers leading the way.
After a brief stop off in Newmarket on Fergus at the GAA Club it was back to Na Piarsaigh via Sixmilebridge and Cratloe before returning to the club.
Next up were the runners who after a brief warm up by fitness guru Daragh Droog were on the road .
A little over 30 minutes after leaving the club we had our first runner back and it was Limerick AC’s Paul Fitzgerald with a personal best time of 32.58 who crossed the finish line in first place.
He was swiftly followed by JJ Cremin also of Limerick AC is second in 36.00 and Geoff DeCourcey in 3rd in 36.15.
Our first lady home was Cushla Hehir in 37.05 followed by Dorothy Ryan in 2nd in 43.07 and Elaine O Donoghue in 3rd in 43.46.
Our first club member back was Brian Hartnett in a time of 41.44 with John Madden right behind in 42.01.
Last but not least were our walkers who waited patiently for their turn to take part and they too looked great with all ages represented.
Finbarr Brougham and Helen Casey then became the focal point with their BBQ which went down well..
We wish to thank all our volunteers, sponsors and participants who made it a special day for the club.
We would also like to pay a special mention to the Blood Bike Mid West crew who were extremely helpful in marshalling the cycle in particular and the cyclist of Cycle for sick children for turned up in numbers to support us.
We look forward to seeing everyone again next year for what we hope will be an annual event.
