C75, another good battle between you and Daryll by the looks of it at Waterworks.
Plenty of up to date news on NIRunning today. Great site.
Could someone keep us updated on the Dublin Marathon please as I can't get on Facebook or the tracker site from work.
Paul Pollock 2:16:30 Rodney.
MAria mc Cambridge 2.35 first Irish woman
Thanks guys. Super running from them both, but especially Paul Pollock. Keep the updates coming.
Got onto the tracker site but I am a bit confused. Did the clocks not change in the Republic at the weekend? Kelly Courtney of Ballymena runners ran 3.37.57. Brilliant debut marathon for her.
PTB ran 2.57.01
None of those times can be right. Sorry. Anyone else getting the same info on tracker site?
Rodney I got kelly as 3:47.
Yes Kenny. Some of the ones showing as Finish were actually predicted finish times but didn't state that. A great run and especially on her debut.
Hope all the Springwell Runners have good runs too.
Paul Thompson 2:55:29 excellent, Hugh Boyle 2:59:04 2nd MO60 in his first marathon. Some good PB's.
Great running from the 2 of them , but Hugh's time is amazing. Tell him i'm in awe.
Alwyn ran 3:17:37 and Paul Brannigan 3:46:xx.
Justin Maxwell ran 2.42, 2 days after coming 3rd in the Snowdonia marathon!!
Thanks TG. I really enjoyed yesterday. I stuck behind the 3.45 pacers nearly all the way and just soaked up the atmosphere. The support from the crowds along the route was tremendous, especially the last few hundred metres to the finish. It was great too to see so many NI club vests out. I took a wee gamble and wore my Saucony Kinvaras, although I hadn't previously done a run of more than 12 or 13 miles on them. My calves were screaming at the finish, but they worked a treat and my legs feel fine today..
It definitely deserves the name 'the friendly marathon', eg. little things like the man giving out the medals shaking your hand and congratulating you. Afterwards it was straight to the pub for a tasty lunch washed down with a couple of pints. It was a day to remember.
Well done Paul & Alwyn and everyone else running yesterday. I shuffled home in 4.38, happy enough as I got round without having to walk. The 4.30 pacers left me behind at 20 miles. Got a boost at 21 when Joe Quinn with the loud-hailer gave me a shout. A couple of Springwell runners passed me at 23 Kenny. The wave starts seem to cause a bit of confusion between chip & finish times. Grand day overall.
Conditions must have been good as there were some good times recorded.
Dublin was always a marathon I wanted to do but never got round to.
