Offaly Athletics Report (August 27)

Offaly Athletics Report (August 27)

The 2018 County Half Marathon Championships was run in conjunction with the highly successful Tullamore Harriers Quinlan Cup Half Marathon last weekend.

It also served as the Leinster Half Marathon Championships so it certainly is a race to aim for. It was sold out early this year and indeed over the past week there were huge demands on race entries.

The course is classified as a “fair” course with long drags as opposed to hills, and certainly this year produced many personal best times. Clubs from all over the county were represented and some fine athletes in were in contention for the top prizes. 

Medals are awarded to the 1st three in each age group for the Offaly Championships.
