Apr 18, 2010 [Stephen Byrne]

Round 2 of the Clonliffe Grand Prix took place last Thursday on the track in Morton Stadium. The McDonald Cup run over 4 miles was sponsored by Colm Doran.

 

28 athletes toed the line for the race with the usual suspects at the sharp end of the race from the off. The winner was Ronan Hartnett again, taking the race in his long stride. A good battle appeared to be going on for second between Philip O’Doherty and Mark Birmingham, the old dog used his guile and pulled away in the closing stages to win by 2 seconds. Dave Dunwoody had one of the runs of the night with a 23:05.

 

The result of the race is as follows:
