After helping out in Dangan last Tuesday, Gary Thornton flew off to Marseille, France, for the Europa Cup 10,000m. Selected alongside Mark Keneally of Clonliffe on the Irish team, Gary was hoping for another big performance after setting PBs at both 10,000m and 5,000m, in the U.S. and the U.K., in the last couple of weeks. On the night, it wasn't to be, as he finished 13th in 30:22.27. Teammate Keneally was also somewhat off his very best with 29:36.48, on a night when Mo Farah became the 3rd fastest British runner ever over the distance. Full results are here:
