Beaufort 10K - 2015

First road race of 2015 in Kerry took place in Beaufort at the annual Charles O'Shea Memorial 10K. Weather conditions were far from ideal with some patchy rain and head wind in the first half of the course but it was still a well attended event with over 140 runners and walkers taking part. 
As always,  host club Star of the Laune AC did a great job to organise and run not only 10K race but also shorter races on grass for kids with trophies to show for at the end. 
Top 3 Men:
1. Tim O'Connor         (An Riocht AC)         32:57
2. Donal O'Callaghan  (An Riocht AC)         33:50
3. Cian Murphy          (Iveragh AC)             33:55
Top 3 Women:
1. Karina Teahan      (St.Finbars AC)          38:20
2. Deidre Nagle        (Eagle AC)                 40:20
3. Catriona Barry      (FFMV AC)                 40:33

St.Brendan's AC had 5 runners in this race with special mention to Margaret Carlin (3rd) and Pat Sheehy (2nd) picking up prices in their respective age categories. Great start to new year.
St.Brendan's AC finishers:
Artur Nowak  44:05                          Margaret Carlin 46:37
Pat Sheehy 50:28                             Cathy Quilter 52:30
