Carton Trail Race 2018

Dunboyne AC – Carton House 6k Trail Race took place on Thursday 26th July 2018 on a beautiful evening at the equally beautiful Carton House Estate for the 3rd annual hosting by Dunboyne AC of their 6k Trail Race.

Gaining in popularity each year there were almost 600 entrants at the 2018 event. 

The race was won by Eoin Durkan of Donore Harriers in a time of 19:57, and 27 seconds behind him the spectators witnessed a battle for second place won in epic fashion with 3 seconds to spare by Rory Kavanagh of host club Dunboyne AC in a time of 20:24 with Barry Minnock of Rathfarnham WSAF in 20:27 3rd and a further 3 seconds back was Alexander Wallace of Kilcock club St. Cocas AC in 20:30 in 4th.

In the team races there was a host club victory for the men’s team consisting of Rory Kavanagh (20:24), Loughlin Campion (20:38) & the evergreen Phelim Glynn (21:38). 2nd team was St. Cocas and 3rd was Dunshaughlin.

Thanks in particular to our hosts, Carton House. We look forward to seeing all of you and many more in the Club race series for 2019 with more great features and fun experiences as you might expect from Dunboyne AC.
