Well done to members competing in recent events in Philadelphia, Louisburgh, Castlegar and Charleville. We will add any other results from this weekend – you can refresh this website post for any update.
Last Sunday (September 16) Patrick Jordan ran the Philadelphia Rock & Roll Half Marathon, finishing in 2:17, but as he says “trending in the right direction (lower time) in terms of ramping up for the Dublin City Marathon (which I hope that I can make!)”
Next up for Patrick is the Georgetown (Washington, D.C.) Half Marathon on October 6, on the Chesapeake &Ohio canal path which runs through the city, followed by the New York Road Runners’ Staten Island Half Marathon on October 14.
