Newbridge AC 5k & 10k Road Race – Race Report

Sunday June 12th was a momentous day for Newbridge AC when we held, for the first time our own open AAI permitted 5k and 10k road race. Despite some very big events taking place the same weekend we were lucky enough to attract a large crowd at all levels with a very strong field at the sharp end!

Despite an inauspicious start to the day on the weather front and a bad forecast, the skies cleared before the races began and it became warm and pleasant (for onlookers!) for the remainder of the day. We were lucky enough to have the race documented in pictures by many talented photographers and I think you will agree that Newbridge and the Curragh have never looked better! Thanks to Popupraces, Vincent McCormack, Cohlin Donovan and Tom & Moira Cash for the photographs.

The 10K was won in super style by Paul Stevenson of Rathfarnham AC in a fantastic time of 32:12, closely followed by his team-mate Barry Minnock in 33:00.  The first woman home was Sonya McConnan followed by Hannah Fothergill and our own Michelle Cox in third.

The 5K was won in 16.16 by Conor Healy. followed by Newbridge AC men Paul Campell and Paul Archbold. The 5K was a clean sweep for the Newbridge women with Emma Boland taking first followed by Kate Burke and Mary Reilly.
