Breaking 40

Breaking 40 - Deirdre Brophy's Sub-40 10KM
 
For me, the details of what happens between the start and finish of a race can be a blur. But I do remember how I got to the start line of the Conamara 10K, on a perfect day for running, reasonably confident that I could get around the course in under 40 minutes.

Moylough hosted three road races on Sunday, 16 October 2016: a 1.5km race for children, followed by an untimed 5km and finally a permitted 10km.

Jane Ann Meehan won the women's race in 37:24, finishing 10th overall. Yvonne Fehilly was second woman home, coming very close to breaking the 40 barrier in 40:10.
