The very popular Adare 10k was held on Sunday, February 23 in Adare, Co Limerick. We had 6 athletes compete in a large competitive field of runners. First home for the club was 24th Dymphna Ryan in 37:11. A fantastic run from Dymphna who fought off fellow Tipp athelte Siobhan O'Doherty to finish 2nd Lady. Following closely was Linda Grogan in a fantastic new PB of 37:56 and finished 4th Lady. A fantastic result to have two if our athletes finish in the Top 4 Women in a competitive race. Next we had PJ Collins 44:31, Claire Ryan 55:06, Elaine Murphy 1:01:08 and Naoimh Dooley 1:06:20.
