Two Halves of Manchester

Now for a report with a difference. How else to report on a marathon than in two halves….by two separate people! Mary Rohan & Esther Leahy give a great account of their experience in the Manchester Relay Marathon last weekend.

Part 1 – Mary:

It's Time To Go Long!!

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.

IAU 24 Hour World Championships

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.
