John Higgins pb 4th in Longford Half Marathon

The annual Longford Marathon, Half and Ultra took place today. There were a few Mayo AC finishers in the Half. The race winner was Freddie Sittuk (Raheny) in 71:06 with Brendan Conway (Westport AC) in second place 71:44. Brendan has had a great summer with top three finishes in a number of races in the West over a range of distances.

His finish time today was well inside his winning time 74:12 in the Westport Half on August 10.  John Higgins was Mayo AC’s first runner to cross the line in an excellent fourth place with a new PB of 73:46, improving on his previous best of 74:29 at the National Half Championships a couple of weeks ago. The other Mayo AC finishers were Kevin Donnellan 1:36.05, Clive Lavelle 1:36.36, Monica Nee 1:44.46, Tracy Cunnane 1:54.25, Justin McDonagh 1:56.58,

Congratulations to John Higgins on his 4th place and well done to our other runners. Let us know if we missed any in the Longford events.
