Gorgeous Gort 8k Result

Published in Results on 15th February 2016

Well Gorgeous Gort certainly lived up to its name on Sunday (14 February) with the sun coming out to play in a race for the first time this year, no wet gear or wolly hats needed for the 171 competitors that toed the line, long may it continue. South Galway AC put on a great show for the 5th running of this event including a nice little prize of dinner for 2 for the fastest couple of the day, Sean & Jacinta Walsh (pictured),  which was a nice gesture on Valentines Day!! The race was won by Kenneth Rodgers of St. Marys in a great time of 25:51, with Mark Walsh (Leevale) coming in second and South Galways own Greg Lundon completing the podium spots. The ladies race was won by Yvonne Fehily in a time of 34:46, Yvonne is getting used to the top step having won in Coldwood a couple of weeks ago. Second home was Loretto Duggan with Deirdre Devane coming home third.
