The latest round of the grand Prix included the Cloniffe Club 1500 Championships in Morton Stadium tonight. No need to say it, but will anyway, it was the usual warm dry evening in Santry!

Again with the number of athletes running some 4 races were required. The women`s club champion came from race 3 Alannah Cooley, making it a middle distance double having won the 800 2 weeks ago, running a time of 4.57. 2nd and 3rd had come from the previous race as Aoife Hession 2nd (5.13) held off Aisling Andrews 3rd (5.14) who had just managed to relegate Alan Fitzsimons to 4th.

The final race of the evening was the men`s championship where Efrem Gidey tore the field apart with a 58 second opening lap, and then eased off to win in 4.05, with Craig Giles 2nd 4.08 and Greg Hossenny 3rd 4.09.
