“Wish you were Here” of marathon courses

 Two of our male and two of our female marathon runners were in action last Sunday and Monday testing out more marathon courses to save us all having to go global. Vince Boyle and Wally Walsh took on Belfast on Monday while Val Fogarty and Dervilla Darcy travelled further a field and tested the Krakow course in Poland.  



 Vince put in a great performance in Belfast, knocking a massive 31 minutes off his Dublin City Marathon time of October last; Vince completed the course in 3:37:25 that was a massive effort Vince!! Fair play & Many congratulations.

I haven’t spoken to Wally yet so I don’t know the full story on his run. 

Val edged ever closer to the sub 4hr milestone knocking 5 minutes off her recent Conemara Marathon time, Val came home in 4:05, good stuff Val!! And that was amidst some confusion (Stories to follow!)

Berlin is next for Val and 4 hrs will be history -I’m certain.  

Dervilla was hot on her heels running in a superb 4:08 slashing 15 minutes off her recent Conemara time. Will done Dervilla that was a huge step up, Congratulations!With that performance there is no reason sub 4 in Berlin is on the cards for you also Dervilla.
