A record number of 1171 entered the Ballintotis 4 mile road race this year. It was run in ideal conditions and indeed there was a record number of 71 athletes from Youghal AC who participated. It was great to see so many athletes with the Youghal AC club singlets finishing and all looking very pleased. There were many battles in all sections of the race.

The first man in from Youghal was Nigel Sheehan in 20th place in a time of 22.33. Nigel is very new to the club and is fast improving. Ann Marie Holland although not officially a member of Youghal AC until Ist of May was the first lady home in a time of 23.58 and also won this race last year. Evelyn Cashman maintained her record of last year finishing in 3rd place in a time of 23.22.. Emily O’ Keefe was the third Junior lady home in a time of 31.33. Marty O’ Keefe was Ist O45 in a time of 22.43 and Steve Devereaux was the third man in 045 in a time of 24.03. Noel Curtin who had a very busy day helping out was third man O50 in a time of 24.30. Great running to all these and to all 71 Youghal AC athletes. Full results can be obtained on cork running blog or on the Ballintotis Council website.
