On Sunday at 12.30 our first event for the Biggest Loser 2017 kicked off. First to head to the bog was the under 10’s – a total of 48 children took on the 2.8 km course. The first home was Ryan Walsh in 24 mins followed closely by Shane Codd in second place with Tadgh Dunne hot on their heels in third place with all the other children finishing the tough course.
At 2pm 142 participants took on the 5.2 km course. First home for the men was Austin Codd in 25.06, followed by Shane Gahan in 26.04 and Bryan Dwyer in 26.12. First home for the women was Mary Breen in 34.48 followed by Mary Carton in 40.04 and Emily Kinsella in 42.05.
We would like to thank Jim & Josie Gahan, Ted Nolan and Danny Murphy for the use of their land. Without their land this event could not take place. We would also like to thank the women who provided the refreshements, the stewards who were out on the course all day and anyone who helped in anyway to make this event such a great success. Also a big thank you to all who took part.
