Farranfore Maine Valley 4 mile Road Race 2012

The 51st annual 4 mile Road Race took place in Farranfore on St.Stephens Day. 
A strong head wind in first part of the run with the occasional shower did not stop over 250 runners from enjoying a break from all that Christmas rush.

For the second year in a row, Mark Hanrahan (Leevale) was overall winner (20.41), followed by Jason Fahy (BMOH) (20.58) and Aogan MacDomhnaill (West Limerick AC).
In Ladies category An Riocht 800m (and recently cross country) specialist Laura Crowe claimed the first spot in a time of 23.24, ahead of Michelle Finn (Leevale) in 23.41 and Maria McCarthy (24.52) from host club Farranfore Maine Valley AC.

St.Brendan's AC had a few athletes competing in this race:
Artur Nowak 28.26 (pos 83)
Kieran Behan (F4L) 32.28 (pos 154)
Pat Sheehy (F4L) 33.28 (pos 167)
Dermot Dillane (F4L) 34.14 (pos 176)

Well done to race organizers - FFMV AC for a great race (apart from some traffic on route) and generous prices in all categories. Provisional results HERE.
