Grand Prix News: Flynner sprints Walker Cup!

Liam Hennessy reports on the resumption  of the Grand Prix Series; The Grand Prix Series resumed last night night, September 12th, after a short summer break with the Walker Cup Р4 Mile Track Race held at Morton Stadium at 8pm. Thr race was kindly sponsored by Pamela Cooper. The weather was a perfect calm 17 degrees. We had 29 starters and had the pleasure of seeing our own David Flynn toe the line. The race saw many battles as runners fought to achieve personal bests. Up front David Flynn was running with nobody to challenge him only the clock. David gave us a glimpse of his fitness in his build up to the Dublin Marathon crossing the finish line in a Stadium record time of 18.57 (Subject to ratification). The first woman home was Ailish Malone in a fine time of 24.42. The result of the handicap was as follows;
Winner – Dave Brady
2nd – Tom Dunne
