KBC Dublin Half Marathon

Congratulations to Eddie Garry on his super run in the Dublin Half Marathon on Saturday 21st September. Eddie joined almost 7000 athletes in the capital for the 13.1 mile race posting 1.17.17. He was 4th in the highly competitive 40 age group. We had two ladies in the blue and white also and here too we had great performances. Amanda Owens posted 1.46.04 and Josie Lalor 2.13.55. Well done everyone.

 

Berlin Marathon 2019

Congratulations to David Murray, Leonard Mooney and Siobhan Stewart who earned their finishers medal in the Berlin Marathon on Sunday 29th September. While Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele might be a tad disappointed with his run – missing the world marathon record by a mere 2 seconds, our two men posted personal bests and were very content! David finished the 26.2 miles in a super time of 2.44.57 and Leonard too had a brilliant run breaking the 3 hour marker with a 2.58.50 finish. Well done to Siobhan who posted 4.47. Great running all round.
