NI Masters Cross Country

Congratulations to Billy Reed for provisionally earning another international vest after finishing 3rd in his age category at yesterday’s NI Masters Cross Country qualifying race. Stevie Beggs also ran well to finish 10th in his category, crossing the line of the 5 mile course in a time of 29.49

London Marathon

 Today 3 of our runners completed the London Marathon with excellent performances & the official club history needing to be consulted! First club member over the line was Nick Weston who produced an outstanding run of 2.38.03 for a massive personal best. Nick impressively ran almost identical splits for both half’s of the race & we believe now stands as the 3rd fastest marathon runner in our clubs long history. Next over the line was Ross Mercer who ran yet another sub-3 marathon, this time posting 2.55. Tim Khanna also completed the race, finding things a little more tough going on the day but persevering well to finish the course in 5.02. Well done to all our runners!

NI Club Relays

  A strong effort from our Masters Men’s team who finished well up the field in today’s Northern Ireland Club Relay Championships. The squad of Richard Craig, John Neill, Rick Hill & Matt McDowell placed 8th out of 35 teams. Richard Craig ran our fastest leg of the day, with a time of 10.32 for his 2 mile leg. Well done to all.
