Special Announcement: Athlete of the Month for July 2020
It is with great pleasure that we announce none other than Debra O’Leary as Clonakilty Roadrunners Athlete of the month for July 2020.
Debra joined the club at the start of 2020 and has been an ever-present, attending nearly every training session this year. As you will see from the detail below, not only has Debra plenty of miles in her legs, she has a very big heart having contributed massively to fundraising runs for several charities already this year.
Debra was part of the winning Clonakilty Roadrunners team in the West Cork Senior Ladies Cross Country Championship in September , but to top things off, she came in first place to become the West Cork Senior Ladies Champion 2020 …..a first member of the club to hold that achievement.
Also, in September, she completed the VHI Virtual women’s mini-marathon, in aid of several great charities.
In August Debra completed a “100 Mile Challenge” in aid of the Mater Hospital which she completed over the course of the month.
In June, Debra then ran 100Km in aid of Laura Lynn – Irelands Children Hospice.
In May Debra also ran a whopping 51.6km over the May Bank holiday weekend for the Roadrunners Charity event in aid of Cairde Clonakilty. Not only did she run every day Friday to Monday inclusive for the challenge, but she did 2 separate runs on the Sunday…….some going.
Debra is currently training for another fundraiser in aid of “Debra Ireland” for a rare eye condition in babies. Over the 24-26th of October, Debra will run a marathon so feel free to donate to her charity on her Facebook page.
So, join us in congratulating Debra, a very popular & deserving winner for July.
Well done Debra and keep up the great work!
