Urban Trail Series- Race 2, Feb. 2011

Updated on Feb. 05th, 2011

The second Race of the Urban trail series was held in Tymon park between Knocklyon and Tallaght on Dublin's west side on Saturday 05th Feb.

The high winds of previous days had abated but the rain still hadn't got the message and it fell in a steady drizzle for the duration of the race. This didn't affect the mood of the participants who had an interesting and muddy run around the park in places most didn't know existed and general consensus was that it was a very enjoyable race.

The over all winner was WIlliam Morris with a fast time of 39:27 ahead of Levente Dorogi (40:10), first women Aoife Bryne (41:10), second women Donna Mahon (41:39) and Simon Devenney (41:40) in fifth place over all and third man home. In the Women’s race Marie Byrne came in third in a time of 41:57 behind the already mentioned pair of Bryne and Mahon.

In the short race Terry McCarron stormed home in 20:59 ahead of Paul Gannon (21:34) and Tom Cuddy (21:39) in third position. First female home in the short race was Maura Ginty in a time of 23:30 ahead of Jill Murray (27:49) and Roisin O'Connor (29:09) in third place.
