Dublin City Marathon 2017

Congratulations to all Longford AC adult members that completed the 26.2 mile marathon distance in Dublin, it’s a fine achievement to get the required training done and make it to the finish line. Well done to everybody especially those new to the distance. There were some outstanding times and new Pb’s. Three Longford AC members managed to achieve impressive results in their age category finishing inside the top 15.

Barry Sheil 9th male in the 35-39 years age category out of 450 runners, time 2:35:51

Sinead Phelan 11th female in the 40-44 years age category out of 330 runners, time 3:08:32

Paddy Sharkey 15th male in the 40-44 years age category out of 621 runners, time 2:41:50

Looking at the overall results before the team results are published the master men’s team 35+ will be in close contention for a team medal.
