Congratulations to Robert Staunton who finished 5th in the recent Edinburgh half-marathon, posting a fine time of 1:11:54 for the distance. Closer to home was the Clifden Sky Road 10k last Sunday where Mike O'Connor continued his comeback with a win, over a tough hilly course, in 33:07. Matt Bidwell was second in 34:05 and Chris McGrath continutes to improve with a 4th place finish in 34:57. Helen Corbett had a blistering run to be the first woman home in 40:18 and she looks well set to go sub-40 on a faster course. Congrats also to Brian Bruton who won the recent Mayfly Challenge 10k in Oughterard, where club-mate Brian O'Connor was also 2nd.



Congrats also to Dan Murphy, one of our Fit4Lifers and new to running, who ran his first marathon in Cork last weekend in an impressive time of 3:44.
