National Half Marathon 3rd September

We had a hugely successful National Half Marathon in Waterford last Saturday. In a high quality field our mens over 40 team of Cathal O Connell, Jim Cosgrave and Ken Devine came second, while our womens over 40 team of Mary Sweeney, Geraldine O Shea and Kitty Buckley were 4th an agonising 22 seconds behind the 3rd placed team. Individually Mary Sweeney won F50 in 1.29.04 while Jim Cosgrave was 3rd in M40 in 1.16.12 and Cathal O Connell was 3rd in M45 in 1.12.23. Congrats to them and all else who participated as there were some fine performances by others who ran exceptionally well and achieved pb’s.
