Wexford town held its first marathon today and Valerie Glavin was there to make history! The race started and finished in the Faythe and the route took athletes out of Wexford town, through some of the most scenic countryside. The course was an out and back route which took the runners up through Kerlogue, past Johnstown Castle, onto Murrintown, and then looped around Forth Mountain, and back to Murrintown and in to town along the same route, finishing with a nice 4-5 mile section of a slight downhill giving a fast finish. There were 2 sections on the course where the athletes had to climb for about 1 km, but the long stretches of downhill and the stunning views made it very worth while! Congrats to Valerie who has now completed her 4th marathon since the May Bank Holiday weekend! Race report to follow.
Also congrats to fellow long-time club member, James Corbett, who despire quite a serious injury finished in 4:02. Better is yet to come.
