Ladies Mini Marathon
Fantastic 8th place finish for Sinead Keavney and lots of fun by our other ladies.
We had a great result today in the Ladies Mini Marathon with an 8th place finish by Sinead Keavney despite being in doubt whether she would run or not due to a severe headcold. She persevered and had a great run.
Lots of our other ladies ran for fun and charity and it was great to see so many out there. Apologies to all that I missed but there was such a huge crowd there it was truly impossible to see everyone.
We don't normally post things like this on the blog but I want to say a huge congratulations to Stephen Devereaux who most of you will know from the Tri N Run shop in Midleton. Steve broke the magic three hour barrier in Berlin this morning and I know very many of our club members are delighted for you Steve. Well done. and also to the amazing Claire McCarthy who got a new pb. Danny
