But the weekend racing didn’t end there. The action moved to Newry today for the Half Marathon:

Mark Smith 1:18:17, Marty O’Neill 1:19:44, Joe Mathers 1:40:33, Suzanne Brennan 1:44:51PB, Joanne Milne 2:05:19, Cathy Ryan 2:07:05

On the same day, our vest in the west took on yet another Tyrone 5k, this time the Newell 5k in Coalisland. Aidy Hughes, for it is he, finished in 25:30.

And Johnny Carey headed north to take on the Edinburgh Marathon completing it in a PB time of 3:38:52.

So, this week’s tune is for those Harriers who showed once again what our club is all about by stopping to help a clubmate, irrespective of what it meant for their own race.

And wishing you a speedy recovery Adam.

Until next week, behave.
