Gale Force Tidings

From our on-the-ground correspondent:

Some brilliant performances put in again on a tough day.  Windy conditions led to some fun (for want of a better description) off-road sections on the bike.

Frank Burke 4:39:12 – 84th / 1407 - 28th MV40
Jim Leahy 4:47:06 – 114th / 1407 - 1st MV50
Ronan McCarthy 4:52:56 – 136th / 1407

Sub 5 in this race is a very good result so they are cracking times.

Kenneth O’ Hara 5:46:20 – 539th / 1407
Ollie Kyne 5:53:53 – 606th / 1407
Orla Stevens 6:08:17 – 750 / 1407 - 10th FV40

Congrats to our W50 winning team

It took from last October bank holiday Monday to Burger Run Friday evening to get all three women together who won team medals in the W50 category in the National Marathon to receive their medals, but got them together we did, eventually.

Congrats to Maire Treasa, Bridget Ann and Frances!  Forget about the fella in the picture beside them.  He only spent nearly as long, getting their medals and then putting them all together in the same place at the one time.
