Cake races 2011

The final event of Clonliffe`s 125 was the annual club Christmas Cake Race held in Santry last night. The race continues to attract a good turn out of the club`s athletes on what is one of the social highlights of the year, the turnout last night was about 50 “athletes” . It was a mild evening with a strongish head wind, the race starting on the track heading into Northwood and the doubling back on itself to finish back on the track. As always a staggered start was the order of the day. And as always there was some questionable handicapping!! First home in the ladies race was young Roisin Leahy a popular winner and an equally popular winner of the men`s race was Mark McDonald.

First three in the ladies race: 1. Roisin Leahy, 2. Becky Woods (and fastest lady 18:02), 3. Rachel Murray (1st junior). 1st Master was Geraldine Reilly.
