Grand Prix News: A Night of Miles (updated with report/results)

Round 5 of the Clonliffe Grand Prix Series took place in Morton Stadium last night. It was a very pleasant night in the stadium for an evening of miles. The Santry mile was last night’s event and such is the popularity of the mile that there was a series of five races held. It was also very pleasing to see a group of the Clonliffe junior women taking part in what for many of them was the first mile race and all suitably attired in their club vests.

There was competitive racing throughout as the races were graded by Maurice Ahern with some very close finishes particularly in races two and three. The fastest athlete on the night was Eoghan Murphy who ran a time of 4.46 (TBC). Fastest woman was Alannah Cooley, who showed no ill effects of her graded 1500 the night before. Fastest of the junior women was Katie Halpin (5.45). Winner of the Grand Prix was Dave O Regan with Peter Bissett 2nd.
