Congratulations to Pauric Ennis on his fantastic run of 2.34.31 at the Berlin Marathon on Sunday. It was a fantastic performance from the talented young runner. Also flying the flag for Tullamore Harriers was Rob Maunsell who clocked 3.49.39 despite being hampered by an injury over the past few weeks. Well done to both.
Dublin Half Marathon
The traffic problems that hampered the Dublin Half Marathon last weekend didn’t deter the trio from Harriers who were involved; Eddie Garry achieved a 14th place finish in 1.16.51 and was 4th O35. Robbie Westman ran a pb of 1.26.48 and Garry Whittle clocked 1.35.28. Great running.
