Castletown-Geoghegan 5km Run
Well done to Castletown-Geoghegan GAA for organizing an excellent 5km road race on Friday 7th September, 2012 which was very well supported by local athletes of all ages and abilities, with about 160 finishers. The GAA Club and the entire community really got behind this race with plenty of stewards on the course, excellent traffic control, rapid production of results, and a fine spread of food afterwards for the hungry runners. Even the weather came on board and everyone enjoyed the beautiful warm and sunny September evening. The course was testing but fair, with a tough uphill first 2km but then a very runner-friendly final 3km.
It was a 1-2-3 for Mullingar in the men’s race, Paddy Kelly showing an excellent turn of pace over the final 400m to win in 16:04 from Vinny Connolly, with Tom McGrath in third place. In the women’s race, best from Mullingar was Linda Conroy showing excellent early form for the forthcoming cross country season, followed by Aisling Moody and Lorna Moody.
This is certainly a race worthy of support in the future and the numbers should increase as the years go on.
