Senior Road Race 2014

Senior Road Champions

The Athletics Wexford County Senior Road Race Championship took place in Kilmore Village on Friday evening last, May 23rd, with one of the largest field of athletes in recent years taking part.

The course was run over a 5K loop, which was the original route for the Kilmore 10K race of years gone by. Starting in Kilmore Village and going anti-clockwise towards the Quay before returning to the village the course was deemed nice and flat, making for fast times.  The Ladies race covered one lap and kicked off at 7.30pm with 25 competitors. With defending champion, Jackie Carty, not available to compete, the field was wide open. Locals were delighted to see their own Fiona Kehoe of Kilmore AC first home in a time of 18.41, to take the County Senior Title, the most prestigious title of the Road Race season. She was followed in by Bree AC’s Elizabeth Egan, with a great display of form in a time of 18.37 and third home was another Kilmore athlete, Annaleigh Hore, to the delight of the local crowd.

In the Ladies Team event, the Kilmore AC team of Fiona Kehoe, Annaleigh Hore and Sinead O’Brien became County Champions on 9 points (1st, 3rd and 5th). Completing a great night for the local club, the Kilmore ‘B’ team of Helen Doyle (6th), Sharon Kehoe (8th) and Sue Cahill (17th) also took the Silver team medals with 31 points. The final medals in the Ladies Team event with to the Menapians ladies team of Lorraine McMahon (9th), Miriam Hill (13th) and Niamh O’Brien (14th) with a total of 36 points.

Next up was the eagerly awaited Men’s 10K, with Tom Hogan of SBR intent on defending his County Title, from ever strengthening opposition. Fifty-six competitors lined up for the start, which was a very strong turn-out of senior athletes vying for honours. With the Men’s race run over two laps of the course, Tom Hogan lived up to the expectation with an emphatic victory to become the County Wexford Senior Road Race Champion for 2014 in a time of 32.21, followed by Niall Sheils of St Killians in 32.49 and  Myles Gibbons of Sliabh Buidhe Rovers impressing for Bronze in 33.09. With two in the medal position, SBR were easily to take the Men’s Team event Gold, with Tom Hogan, Myles Gibbons, Tommy McElwaine (4th) and Paul Gibbons (7th) scoring for the County Title. Slaney Olympic AC finished in 2nd position on 32 points, earned by Dave Barron (5th), Martin Farmer Monaghan (6th), Jim Stafford (9th) and Mick Jordan (12th). The SBR ‘B’ team took another set of Bronze medals with Denis Moynihan (8th), Ger Doyle (10th), Noel Kennedy (14th) and Joe Lillis (15th) scoring 47 points in the event.
