Moynalty Athletic Club broke new ground on Easter Monday when the hard-working club officials hosted the inaugural four-mile road race (M4M) at midday.

The action started and finished in the threshing field with the start from the rear of the tennis courts and the finish in the vicinity of the museum building. 

Moynalty AC official Angela Magee was delighted with the support the club received from all the other clubs in Meath.

“We didn’t know what to expect for our first official race and we had over 200 starters who were timed and there were some social walkers who participated as well,” she told the Meath Chronicle on Monday evening.

“We are a small club with over 50 members, but membership is growing consistently and it was great to get our first race organised.

“As a club we have grown over the past five years and we hope to continue developing, the fact that we organised a successful AAI-permited event is a major boost and we were also delighted to see the Meath AAI chairman Brendan Meade and Meath AAI president Rose Healy here on the day,” she added.

SOME OF THE VOLUNTEERS WHO MADE IT ALL WORK 

Race director Helen Leddy thanked all the competitors, the volunteers and marshalls who helped with the organisation of the event and was on hand at the finish to conduct the presentation ceremony in the midday Easter Monday sunshine.

The Moynalty club was formed in 2014 and on Monday there was even an international flavour to the race with Ayrton Shadbott from the Port Hills club in New Zealand taking third place in the men’s race behind the Dunboyne duo of winner Roryy Kavanagh and second-placed Gerry O’Reilly.

Kerry athlete Mary Daly was the first woman home ahead of Aoife Parrella (Star of the Sea) and Eimear McGovern (St Brigid’s) in third place.
