Inishowen Half Marathon 2014 (Sunday, 13th April)
SUNDAY, 13TH APRIL, 11.30AM-1.30PM
The winner of the IAC Half Marathon, all the way from Dundrum South, was JOE SWEENEY in a strong time of 1:09:13. Unfortunately Joe was short of breaking the course record of 1:08:05 however, given the windy conditions he provided a competitive finishing time. Putting in a strong competitive performance for 2nd place was City of Derry athlete CRAIG ROBERTS (1:15:37), and CHRIS MCGUINNESS from Foyle Valley (1:16:18) made it the top 3. KAROL DOHERTY was the first wheelchair athlete home in a time of 1:28:22.
In the top female field, PAULINE CURLEY set the pace early to dominate and take 1st position in 1:20:13. Local athlete CLAIRE MCGUIGAN from Lifford A.C. provided a competitive race for 2nd place against MARINA CAMPBELL from City Of Derry (1:28:46). CLAIRE MCGUIGAN created a 36 second lead to take 2nd position on the line.
Inishowen AC was out in force on the local course and new PBs were well established. Some great performances were provided to secure a range of prizes across both male and female categories. Inishowen AC's Pauric McKinney didn't dissapoint as usual to make the top 5 of the competitive field and also secure the M45 category.

If you're a non-runner, returning runner, or somewhere in between, why not have a look at our Club Training Schedule. It's packed full of goodness for runners (and non-runners) at all levels. Don't let the dark evenings ruin those New Year intentions. There's a half marathon in Buncrana in April...why not?!
