Boston Scientific Half Marathon Clonmel

Martha Wins Again

Some fantastic running from our crew who ventured to Clonmel in the pouring rain and wind on Sunday morning. Martha McNamara had another fantastic win in the O/55 cat. and Margaret Jones who despite the lack of training returned a very fine 1.44.48 Unfortunately Bernie Twomey had an  accident and had to drop out with injury at the five mile mark but as can be seen from the photo's she is still smiling as always.

Below shows Bernie and Mag's wearing their new special offer 25e for membership recruiting hats but as Bernie says "we would need to fatten him up with a few burgers before we would get any speed out of him".

Late News Update

Last Saturday night Midleton Athletic club hosted their annual summer BBQ. Despite being a very busy date, event wise for many members, the usual hardy bunch appeared. The night was mild and misty and Sage provided the perfect spot for our athletes to top up on hydration and protein whilst marathon training plans and race tactics were discussed. Fabulous food and fun was served till about 12. Whilst a few Cinderella’s retreated home, more members progressed to discuss training next door.

 Well done to our superb social committee for the great night.
