Well, in the case of road races, it all depends on what part of the country you are in! Here in Dublin for whatever reason there are no road races whilst not so elsewhere. So in Blessington today Sergiu Ciobanu won the Lakes 10K in 30.49. In Ratoath, also a stone’s throw away from the capital, Dermot Faughnan was 23rd in the Half Marathon in 83.27 with Garrett Loy 44th in 88.07. The Ratoath 5K saw Joyce O’Hare place 19th (20.40), Sinead McDermott 23rd (20.57) and Alison O’Sullivan 53rd (24.02). Also today on the roads of the other 31 counties the Medic Half Marathon took place in Monasterevin, Co. Kildale where Noel O’Dwyer ran 1.31.00.
