Honours go to Fiona and Ger in Wexford Senior Road Championships

The Mr Oil Senior Men’s and Women’s County Wexford Road Championships took over the village of Murntown last Saturday evening. Event hosts Wexford Marathon Club chose a rather testing route which included a long 1.5km uphill drag. The central part of the course was a loop of just under 5km with the women running one lap, the men two.

In the Women’s 5km race Fiona Kehoe delivered her trademark blistering early pace which meant that she was soon out on her own. She maintained this hot pace all the way to the finish, winning with ease. The battle for 2nd and 3rd was a much closer affair with DMP club-mates Katie Wilson and veteran Ann Sullivan keeping each other company in the first half of the race. While Katie pulled ahead at one point going up the long incline Ann reeled her back in. The latter put her experience to good use as she opened up a narrow lead on Katie who, try as she might, could not get her nose back in front. They finished in that order, Ann taking Silver and Katie Bronze.

The men’s 10km race was dominated from the early stages by Slaney Olympic’s Ger Forde. He looked effortlessly smooth as he eased away from the field. Niall Sheil (St Killian’s AC) was the only one to try and match his pace but by the end of the first lap he knew that Silver was the best he could hope for. Forde went on to take the win with Sheil 20 seconds back. Paul Lynch of SBR, showing a welcome return to form, ran a very strong race to take the Bronze. He was followed home by Aedan Rodgers (United Striders) competing in his first Senior Championship race. SBR, with 4 in the top 10, took the team title, just 4 points ahead of United Striders. Slaney Olympic took team Bronze.
