Mick Rocke runs 2:53 in Boston Marathon

Today was the 126th running of the Boston marathon – the world’s oldest and most prestigious. It’s traditionally held on Patriot’s Day – the third Monday in April.

We had one finisher (that we know of) – Turlough-based Michael Rocke who joined the club in early 2019. He ran a Half Marathon in London that summer in 83:50. Later in 2019 he finished the Dublin Marathon in 2:57.11.

Today his finish time results were 2:53.37 net, 2:56.38 gun. He passed the halfway point in 1:26.25. This and his 5k splits show he ran a very even paced race. His first 5k was 20:40 and he ran 35-40k in 20:43. And 41:16 from 30k to 40k.

Congratulations Mick! Excellent performance.
