Peter Bissett reports: Last Sunday, May 22nd, saw a super crew of 26 athletes representing Clonliffe Harriers show up for LSA’s inaugural home-turf race, the Peninsula 4mile Road Race 2022.
The wonderful team at Lambay Sports and Athletic (LSA) hosted a slick event, with full road closures and musical marshals ensuring nobody got lost down the back of the estuary while playing a few tunes to encourage runners on. With a turnout of approximately 400 runners on the day, the event ran smoothly thanks to an army of volunteers – especially a seamless (and queueless!) bag drop and excellent services!
Some super runs of the day including a nice handful of PBs for Clonliffe athletes. A couple of top ten finishes kept Clonliffe nicely on the map, but the star of the show was Marie Howard, coming home as the second woman over the line in a rapid 25:56. Well done to all Clonliffe Athletes who represented on the day.
A representative from LSA asked us to express special thanks to Clonliffe Harriers for our support of their first race. The field was covered with black and amber singlets on the day, a really wonderful sight to see at a neighbouring race. Long may it continue!
