Kate Cronin wins World Team Bronze PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 08 September 2013 20:39

KATE Cronin (left) played a pivotal role in securing a bronze team medal for Ireland at today's 29th World Mountain Running Championships in Krynica-Zdroj in Poland. Kate  came through the field for an incredible 18th place - the magnitude of her achievement is highlighted by the fact that she is still eligible to compete in the Dublin novice cross-country!

Originally a member of the Sub 40 group Kate later graduated to Mountain Running and has done exceptionally well on the Irish circuit but today's run elevates her to a different level. Sarah McCormack (Clonliffe) was in the top three for most of the race before slipping back to sixth on the final steep climb. Sarah Mulligan (DSD) delivered with a brilliant 27th to ensure medals for the first ever time for an Irish women’s team. The previous best performance by an Irish senior women’s team was ninth from 19 teams in 2012 and sixth from eight teams in 1988.

There was no joy for the men's team who finished 11th overall and unfortunately Raheny's Ian Conroy failed to finish the race after falling a sustaining a knee injury. Club Treasurer Pat Hooper was joint team manager of the Irish squad.

Meanwhile on the domestic front yesterday Gavin Eccles won the 5km Malahide Castle Park run in 17.46. It was only his second run in the event and he is the first junior athlete (U-19) to win it. He finished four second clear of club mate Louis Linnane. Donald Quinn was 9th in a new PB of 18.44 while Eoin Keating was 15th in 18.55. Other club finishers included Jeremy Skillington 20.06; Aine Cremin 20.35 (3rd female), Darren Keane 21.43; Connor Jennings 22.02; Shane McDermott 22.12 - this was Shane 100th Park run, he has run the majority of them in Bushy Park in London, Feidhlim Kelly 22.13

In the BHAA Finding the Run of Ourselves 10km race in Firhouse Orla Gormley was the club's first finisher in 42.03; Ray McCormack was first O 65 in 49.35. Other club finishers included Mary Purdue Smyth 48.07; Sinead Lyons 50.18 and Maurice Timmins 65.33.

Dave Brady had another busy weekend; on Saturday he broke four hours for the Dingle marathon clocking 3:58.28; he then travelled the length of the country to compete in a 50km race mostly over trails in Belfast today which he finished in 5:37.45.
