Conditions were good for the third Annual Kilmovee 10k on Saturday afternoon. There was a record turnout of runners and walkers, with 406 finishers.

John Roddy and his community team put on an excellent organised race - the first in the 2012 Mayo AC C&C Cellular Road League.

Race winner Martin Conroy (Ballina AC ) led from the start and only had clubmate Roger Barrett as company most of the way. He passed 5k in 15.58, and finished strongly a few seconds outside his

2011 winning time to claim his third win in as many years at Kilmovee. His next target is the Belfast Marathon in a few weeks.

Anto Devaney and Andrew Lynskey were Mayo AC's top finishers in 4th and 5th place.

The women's race saw Mary Gleeson set a strong pace from the start and she worked hard to retain her Kilmovee title in a great time of 36.35, 45 seconds better than 2011.

She will be hard to beat this year in the league and claimed a record fifth win.

ColetteTuohy, 2nd in 38.57, and Angela O'Connor 3rd 40.46, made it a clean sweep for Mayo AC and they too will look to the national 10k next week with confidence.

There were a lot of excellent performances among Mayo AC's 23 runners, including a few PBs. Hugh Duffy had a great run to win the o50 category, two minutes better than his 2011 time. His winter training schedule was a key factor.

Pauline Moran's 44.54 finish was also significant, and she will be a medal contender in the F55 category in the Phoenix Park.
