Sweeney takes 2012 EirGrid Dunboyne 4 Mile

Joe Sweeney of Dundrum South Dublin athletic club strode to a comfortable victory in yesterday’s EirGrid Dunboyne 4 Mile Road Race in county Meath- an event that attracted an entry over one thousand.

Sweeney, who is coached by Jerry Kiernan, raced into an early lead and stormed to victory in 18 minutes 18 seconds- well clear of Tomas Fitzpatrick of Tallaght A.C, 19:00,and national cross country champion, Eddie McGinley of Annadale Striders who placed third in 19:23.

“It felt good to race here in Dunboyne just a few days before I travel to Albuquerque for some weeks of training there,” Joe Sweeney said. “I am looking forward to the opportunity of training at altitude and it is great that my club mate and training partner Alan McCormack is coming with me. I have been putting in some really hard training sessions over the past number of weeks and I am happy with today’s performance.”

Sara Treacy of the nearby Moynalvey Athletic Club won her second race in a week- leading home the women’s field in 21:59. Last Sunday Treacy won the St Patrick’s Festival 5km road event in Dublin and she is also heading off for a month of training at high altitude in Font Romeu in France. Julie Turley (Donamore A.C) finished second in 22:21 and Fiona Roche of Raheny Shamrock A.C placed third in 22:46.

“I enjoyed today’s race and I am now looking forward to a solid month of training at altitude – a build up for the track season,” Sara Treacy said. “It has been a busy couple of weeks for me and winning two races within a week has been very satisfying.”

Yesterday’s EirGrid Dunboyne 4 mile event was run in brilliant sunshine and was a model of excellent organisation.

Robinson and Sweeney Set For Dunboyne

Paul Robinson

This Sunday March 25th at 3pm sees the 43rd running of the Dunboyne 4 Mile Road Race and & Fun Run, this year kindly sponsored by EirGrid

The EirGrid Dunboyne 4 Mile Road Race & Fun Run is ‘a short race with a big reputation’ and a landmark event on the Irish road racing calendar.

2010 winner Joseph Sweeney (Dundrum South Dublin AC) is returning to the roads of Dunboyne and will be the hot favorite to win the 2012 event. Sweeney had an outstanding winter season culminating in a fifth place finish in the European Cross Country Championships back in December.

Among the challengers to Sweeney will be the exciting middle distance talent Paul Robinson (St. Cocoa’s AC). Robinson has recently returned from an extended training stint in Australia, which saw Robinson record a 1500m personal best of 3:40:50. In this sort of form, Sweeney will need to be at his absolute best to hold off track specialist Robinson. Other athletes to watch out for include Darren McBrearty (Letterkenny AC) and local athlete Dara Rennicks (Bohermeen AC).

There are cash prizes of €400 for the first man and woman home, and a €250 bonus for anyone who breaks the men’s (18.09) and women’s (20.00) course records, currently held by Glynn Thomas (Coventry Godiva Harriers) and Rosemary Ryan (Bilboa AC).

Open to walkers, joggers and runners all of ages and standards, the flat and fast course – beginning and ending in Dunboyne town centre – offers all participants an excellent chance of achieving personal bests.

At four miles, this is also an ideal event for anyone new to fitness walking or running as the emphasis is on mass participation and a fun day out in a friendly and safe environment.
