Fingal 10k Swords

The commencement of the Dublin race series coincides with the high point of Irish summer. And so in Swords last Sunday the four race series which culminates in the Dublin marathon on the October bank holiday weekend commenced with the Fingal 10k in Swords. As anticipated a large crowd turned out owing both to the collective discount on offer for the four race series and also the quality of the event as a standalone race. Amongst the large crowd was a significant attendance from Duleek AC. Some athletes are using the race and series as a temperature check on marathon progress With Others racing the distance on its own merits. Lisa Chambard is ticking along nicely in preparation for the big day in October and ran an impressive 49 mins. Derek Reilly is no stranger to either race series or marathon running and put in another impressive performance in Swords. Celena Tierney finished in a very strong time of 63 minutes with Tara Dillon hot on her heels. Rob Kierans is another who is preparing diligently for the Dublin marathon and finished just over the 45 minute marker. Orla Hillman is having an excellent year and clocked close to her best in a time of just under 57 minutes. Michelle Ferran, in one of her first races for the club finished in an excellent 58 minutes whilst Steve Gallagher clocked an impressive 47 minutes for the distance.

Preparations are now being finalised for the Indaver Duleek 10k road race. The race, now in its fifth year continues to attract a high calibre field from throughout the region. This year has been no different and there is now the added incentive of a generous group discount and a very striking long sleeve race t-shirt which has generated a lot of interest. The race takes place next Sunday 6th August at 11am and full details can be found on or on the race facebook page – Indaver Duleek 10k road race.
