A big congratulations to Ed McEntee who came home in 6th place in the Marathon at the World Masters Athletics Championships in a stunning time of 2.43.41! For the past two weeks in Lahti, Finland the World Masters has been taking place with the event concluding with the marathon last Saturday. Continuing an excellent season for Sportsworld competitors, with Helen White representing Ireland in the World Mountain Championships and Aoife Brady taking home a Bronze medal from the National T&F in recent weeks, Ed ran a strong race on a warm morning in the surroundings of Lake Vesijärvi to come in behind Russia’s Sergey Perminov who took the marathon win in 2.30.27.
Also this weekend is the Adidas Frank Duffy 10 mile in the Phoenix Park. Online entry is still possible but from newspaper reports last week the event is a near sell out……6000 expected to line up! If you are not running come out and support the club as we’ll be fielding strong men’s and women’s teams and the club usually has a high turn out of runners at this event. If you are entered wear your club singlet or if you need a singlet see Emily or Mick at training this week. Also if there is some interest we may look at organising going out for a bit of food & drink on Saturday night to replenish your bodies supplies after a hard mornings racing!
