July 2015 - club updates

Run down of a few events in first half of July 2015 where St.Brendan's AC members were present.

4 July 2015 - Parkrun Tralee no.23/2015
Weekly Parkrun in Tralee with Kirstie Nowak, Yvonne Quill, Lilly Nowak, Daisy Nowak and Artur Nowak from St.Brendan's AC.
Results HERE

6 July 2015 - Sea to Summit 5Mile (Ballyheigue)
New event in Ballyheigue Summer Festival got off to a great start with approx. 30 runners and walkers taking part in this inaugural event. Starting at the sea level and climbing over 220m to top of Maulin Mountain with mixture of surfaces, ranging from road to trail.

St.Brendan's AC runners are no strangers to hills and trail running and this was proven as James Daley finished 2nd overall, Margaret Carlin was 1st female and Shannon Quill 3rd female.

We also had Yvonne Quill, Eileen Leen, Joan Reil Burke, Mags Hussey, Katelyn Leen, Pat Sheehy & Artur Nowak running in this event and even former Munster Rugby player John Hayes was so impressed with our runners, he request we take photo with him. We polity oblige his request as you can see above after quick glance at his posture and we decided that refusal was not a (safe) option....

8 July 2015 - King of the Beach (Ballyheigue)
Another annual event in Ballyheigue Summer Festival schedule is well known locally - King of the Beach run. It's approx. 5K distance from Ballyheigue beach in direction of Black Rock and back again to Ballyheigue.

Shannon Quill was once again in fine form when she earned herself "Princess of the Beach" title and award. Unfortunately no tiara this year....

Rest of our club members did very well and we will be back next year. The blue of St.Brendan's AC was represented by Joan Reil Burke, Eileen Leen, Yvonne Quill, Katelyn Leen, Hannah-May & Seamus Lucey, Pat Sheehy & Artur Nowak.

Preparation for our annual running event Banna 10K Road Race & 5K Fun Run progressing on schedule. Runners and walkers can register on-line HERE and receive link to ELIVAR Sports Nutritions product promotion page, specially created for Banna Run participants.
