 Celbridge AC were well represented in the annual le Cheile 5k held on Saturday the 2nd of May. Barry Murphy ran a personal best in 16:23 and narrowly missed out on victory coming an impressive second followed by Conor Burke in 16:30. Frank McDonald and James Hoare were next to finish ensuring a team victory. Conditions were very bad but that didn't stop the 15 Celbridge athletes from taking part. Frank McDonald won his category and Teresa O'Reilly took second in hers. 

There was almost the same number of runners from the club taking to the streets of limerick as there was in lexlip. First race of the day was the marathon where three of our athletes took part. First home was David Hayes in a time of 3:17. Jay Carraher and Simon Hanratty ran together throughout the race and finished together in 3:25 looking fresh from their efforts.
Next was the half marathon where Ian McManus led the club home in a superb time of 1:20. Next to finish was Colm Higgins in 1:37 closely followed by Dermot Hudson in 1:39. Linda Phelan was our first woman to finish in an excellent time of 1:40. Linda had suffered injury set backs leading up to the race and finished less than 4 minutes outside her Pb. Fiona Hoare ran in 2:04 with Laura McManus finishing just 2 minutes behind in 2:06. Louise Walsh finished in 2:21 completing an excellent days running by all Celbridge athletes. Congratulations to everyone who ran .
