Clara AC 5k 2023 (16th Apr)


Race three in the Offaly 5k Race Series took place on Sunday 16th April when the Clara AC 5k was held on a flat fast course on closed roads for added safety, starting at Clara GAA and taking the just over 300 runners through the town before looping back to the GAA to finish. Finishing very strongly and well up in fifth place in a very competitive race was Conor Sherwin in 16 minutes 20 seconds, winning a prize for 1st junior man. Nicky McCabe finished in 25:32 to take 2nd prize in his master category. In the women’s race, the Mullingar group was led home by Caroline Mullen in 22:40, and with support from Brigid McCabe (22:35) 1st in her master category and Joanna Tyrrell (24:05), the Mullingar women finished a very creditable ninth Club. Also running well and enjoying their races were Olivia Cooney (24:13), Nuala Moran (24:28), Pauline Troy (25:11) and Claire Lennon (25:42).
