Well known Claremorris athlete Mary Murphy (Mayo Ac) has been confirmed as bronze medalist in her age category from this years National Marathon Championships, which was held in conjunction with the Dublin City Marathon. This is all the more remarkable when you consider that this was Mary’s first marathon having only taken up the sport through Fit4Life (Claremorris) in the last 2 years. Mary is pictured here on the finish line with fellow club runner, John Timothy.
This is the second medal Mayo AC received at the championships, as Tom Hunt was already confirmed as winning a Bronze individual medal.
Well done to both from all your friends in Mayo AC.
