In excellent conditions in Charleville, Kevin Mooney ran a sensational PB for the half-marathon, setting a new Club Record of 1:12.01 in the process!
This is a really great time, and a major breakthrough for Kevin – just what you want one month out from his main goal of a Marathon PB in Dublin. The signs are that in this form, Kevin will smash the current club marathon record if conditions are in any way favourable. He already has an excellent Marathon in horrendous conditions in Boston. Well done Kevin and best of luck in the run in to Dublin!
Full results of the Charleville half marathon are here and feature some great performances and pbs from many Galway athletes – Kevin was still the fastest Galwayman by almost 3 minutes.!!
(It should be said that the fastest club member to have ever run a half marathon is still Gerry Ryan, but Gerry ran his sensational 64 minute national championship winning time before he joined Craughwell AC!)
Another brilliant run was from John Fitzpatrick who had a massive pb of 1.26. Fair play guys!
* Update! Here are Kevin’s Splits for the day – how long could you run with him? 🙂
