Peter Mooney had reason to smile at the finish of Saturday's K Club Business Houses 10k road race in Straffan, Co Kildare, as he came home a winner in 32.32, a new personal best time for the distance.
Mooney finished just five seconds clear of Neil Wiktorski (32.37) and Lee Van Haefton in third (32.39). Myles Gibbons finished fourth in 32.49 and Vincent McGuinness was fifth in 32.59. Robert Cross was sixth in 33.39. It was a good day all round for the Mooney family as Peter Mooney's brother, Rory, ran a time of 2.44 in the Rotterdam Marathon.
Charlotte Kearney led the field home in the Women's race, finishing in 38.32. Emilia Dan finished second in 38.52 and Pamela Howard was third in 39.27.
This K Club Business Houses race is one of exceptional quality, as are the post-race refreshments – a real feast that makes this a standout event.
