It's that time of year again when people are looking at Spring Marathons (unless you're Ruthann & Val who run one each week). Again this year we have plenty of members travelling for races & we'd like to wish good luck to all.

The club wish the best of luck to Ruthann Sheahan this weekend as she takes part in the 11th edition of the 24 Hour World Championships in Turin, Italy on the 11-12th April 2015. The race will also host the 20th European Championships. The race takes place on a 1700m course and starts at 10am local time.
In this event in 2012, Ruthann's distance of 229km set a new Irish Outdoor 24hr record, placed her 7th in the World & 5th in Europe. On recent form I wouldn't be surprised to see that record tumble.
Not only is our own Martin Keane a legend on the road, he has serious clothes sense too, if his sartorial elegance after the race - see above - is anything to go by! Straight out of East LA, via Rathmorrissey.
The man was also the only Over 70 male to run in the race today, joined by Mary Cronin (LimerickAC but originally Woodford) as two only two over 70 athletes to complete the course today.
