Cullen takes on top 5,000m field in Heusden

Mary Cullen takes on a top class 5,000m field at the Heusden-Zolder meeting tonight and will have eyes on a world championship qualifying time of 15:20.00.

Cullen returned to the track after a two-year lay-off last month and finished an excellent third place in the 5,000m at the Martinez Classic in Concord, MA in 15:29.99. Cullen also finished fourth at the recent Cork City Sports in a tactical 3,000m in 9:08.49.

The pace for Heusden is set for sub 15 minute pace and she will run a little off that and strive for the sub 15:20 qualifying standard. The start-list is below and Heusden always delivers fast times. You can check all the start-lists here with a host of international stars along with local favourites Pieter Jan-Hannes in the 1500m and Borlee brothers, Dylan and Kevin, in the 400m. You can watch the live stream below thanks to Eversport.

Con Houlihan once told me that tomorrow is now. In taking on this venture I’ve started to try and put his words into action.

I worked for Con from 2007 till his passing in 2012 taking down his copy and a whole lot more. I have a Con Houlihan section which will go in to more depth on that.

I’m a long-time contributor to the Irish Runner magazine and am also working for the Irish Examiner.
