Updated 8\11\2010 – Byrne in IAU 100K World Championships – Gibraltar 7th November

Congratulations to John who completed the grueling 100k in Gibraltar yesterday. As we got our first update and before most people awoke from their slumber on Sunday morning, John had 50K completed in 3hrs47mins. 70k was completed in 5hhrs18mins and John finished strongly in 8hrs 3mins to take 59th position overall and second Irishman home.      

Mayo Ac would like to wish John Byrne all the best as he competes on the Irish team in the World 100K championships in Gibraltar this weekend.

John has  completed a marathon, and a 50K in the last two months, and will now negotiate the biggest challenge that is over 62 miles of running. The course consists of a lead-in section from the athletes’ village, and then onto a 5K loop.  The athletes will then run 18 complete laps to finish the 100K.
