Last Sunday the 2010 national half marathon took place at St. Abban’s AC in County Laois. Not quite as long a drive as last year but a tougher 2 lap course with plenty of ups and downs made for a challenging race.

Andrew Ledwith (Fr. Murphys AC) and Maria McCambridge (Letterkenmy AC) took the National Half Marathon titles. Ledwith came home with 41 seconds to spare over his closest rival in the form of Michael Clohisey (Raheny Shamrock’s AC). Maria McCambrige dominated the women’s race coming home 21st overall and five minutes clear of her nearest rival.

Plenty of pictures of the day can be found here. Sportsworld had a good few runners taking part. The mens team took bronze and Lucy won Master Women W40. Well done all the cross country awaits.
