Waterford AC Half Marathon

This weekend was all about the Waterford AC Half Marathon, a popular event with our crew. On Monday 18 club members planned to start but by Saturday morning only 11 made it to the start line with bugs and infections taking us down one by one.

A huge congratulations to all those that took part, roadworks caused some amendments to the course and fair to say resulted in it being a little hillier than usual!

Marc was first home for St. Benedict Inbhear Mór AC in a super time of 1:36, followed by Peter in 1:39 (PB), Alan H 1:41, Sharon 1:50, Mick 1:56, Kevin 1:56 (PB), Alan P 1:58, Aoife 2:02, Justyna 2:14, Geraldine 2:14 (PB) and Niamh 2:38. Well done everyone, super performances by all and thanks to the Waterford AC Half Marathon crew for a fantastic event.

Up in Avondale Forest Parkrun, Donna and Justin took on the muddy course. Justin finished in 26:34 and Donna 29:16

On Sunday we had a strong crew on the volunteer roster again supporting Arklow Duck Pond junior Parkrun. This really is a fantastic event for the kids so if you haven’t brought the kids yet, pop along and give it a try. Well done to Alison, Aoife, Donna, Geraldine, Justin, Justyna, Kevin, Peter, Sam and Teresa.
