Report from Maria Hehir:

Yesterday while the rest of Ireland had lovely sunshine, it rained in Dublin

and the six ladies from Athenry {Fiona McCann, Etain Wilson, Maeve Noone,

Aillen McNamara, Pauline Murray & Maria Hehir} were all very wet by the time

we got to the starting line at 3pm but it didn’t damping the atmosphere, and

thankfully the rain had stopped by then.

We all got off to a good start and we felt the course went very smoothly

considering the roads were slippery. I soon got into a pace of 5min per km

for the first 3km and 5.20 from there to 8km, The 9km felt the longest and

my slowest mile and I finished in around 52.9 I am just waiting for my chip

time to confirm.

We felt all did well and were very happy with our times overall.

For the runners the times started from 52, 53 58 min and two joggers over the 60min

we will get the correct times later to day when they are up on the flora web
