July 2 Achill Half Marathon : won by Freddie Kerron Sittuk (Raheny Shamrock AC) 74:58.
Congratulations to women’s race winner Norah Newcombe (Mayo AC) coming home in 85:25 and sixth overall – a similar time to her second place in Cork Half last month when the field ran a half mile extra. Norah also won the Achill Half last year in 83:06. This year there were just ten finishers under 90 minutes. It was a blustery showery day on a tough course.
Well done to our other Mayo AC finishers: (gross time) Padraic McVann 1:45.28, Owen Mongan 1:45.28, Réiltin Shaw 1:50:32, Julie Kearney 1:50:36, Thomas Kelly 1:51.41, Aileen Shaw 1:54.34, Maggie Heneghan 1:55.44, Carmel Cloherty 2:01.54, Thelma Birrane 2:08.40, Siobhan Walsh 2:08.55, Katie Concannon 2:08.55, Karen Devaney 2:09.25
