Another Successful Jacinta O'Brien Plassey 10km

The Jacinta O’Brien Plassey 10k is an event organized by the 2nd year Sport and Exercise Sciences Students annually. This year the event took place on the 9th of April 2017, with participants running a new and more scenic route that took place on majority of the UL magnificent campus. It is, as always, a charity event, with all funds raised split between our two very worthy charities.  This year the two charities selected by the 2nd year students were the Irish Cancer Society, and the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association. We are pleased to report that a total of over €3,000 was raised from this event, with about €1,600 going to each charity.

The winner on the day was Hilkka Kontro (Research Assistant in PESS), coming in at an amazing time of 38:27, and our male winner arrived only 20 seconds later – Will Turner at 38:44.

The class group were assisted by PESS Postgraduate students Cormac Powell and Hannah McCormack,  PESS lecturer, Dr. Mark Lyons, Neasa O’Donnell in UL Sport, PESS faculty, the Buildings and Estates department, John Cleary at Eventmaster, Ritchie Clifford and the local Guards.
