Clonliffe raid Rathfarnham 5K

There were quality runs from the Clonliffe group at this morning’s Rathfarnham 5k as the athletes made the most of the good conditions and fast course to bag PBs and top prizes. Efrem Gidey and Ian Guiden had a great battle throughout both breaking away with 1k to go and thereafter basically sprinting the final 600. Efrem took the win with a 14.18 pb with Ian 2nd also in a PB 14.20.

Sean Doran after his 10,000 pb on Thursday was fairly tired coming home in 21st place 15.28. Ben Guiden also recording a PB, 15.33, knocking 20 odd seconds off his best, in 25th made up the scoring 4 that took the team win.

With Stephen Cashin 16.07 and Ryan Sheridan 17.18, along with Efrem and Ben, Clonliffe also took the junior mens team. Thomas Frayne home for a weekend visit ran 18 14.

There was also a fine run by Eleanor Alexander 7th woman 17. 37 and pbs for both Alannah Cooley 18.51, an almost 20 second best and Laura Tuite 18.56, a 30 second pb, and with Tess Loftus 22 15 the Clonliffe women took 2nd team.
