|Jeff Fitzsimons||Jul 28, 11:47am||Terry Conway is tearing it apart! Could be a couple of hours inside his time of last year, showing no signs of a hangover after a DNF in the Anglo Celtic last weekend.|
Paul and Barry seem to have run a smart race, staying together. Maybe holding something in reserve for UTMB/CCC in September.
|Adrian Tucker||Jul 28, 3:56pm||Well done to Paul and Barry for an excellent race.|
Finishing together in a time of just over 22 hrs in 2nd and 3rd positions.
That's 2hr 30 mins up on last years time for Paul, and 3hr 50 mins quicker for Barry. Excellent running.
The winner Terry Conway finished in 19hr 50min, up 2hr 8min on last year
|Richard Nunan||Jul 28, 6:24pm||Great running lads !! Thats a savage result. Well Done!!|
|Rene Borg||Jul 28, 8:12pm||Tim Chapman came through the 50km mark for the 50 mile version in Ambleside in 57th position and a time of around 6:46. James Clancy followed in 6:57 and 68th position. One more "safe" checkpoint before the tricky last two passes, missing out on the daylight there will make a big difference.|
Both were in the top-30 after the first two checkpoints and have been losing a bit of ground for each since. They've followed almost the same pattern I experienced last year so hopefully they'll rally better and stay out of navigational trouble for the last 30km.
|Rene Borg||Jul 28, 10:41pm||Tim and James through in 62nd and 67th respectively with just under 9 minutes between them. James pulled back 4 minutes on this last leg. Very difficult pass to navigate now in the dark but with their recent recce they look set to finish in sub-11:30.|
|Rene Borg||Jul 28, 11:10pm||Chaps are home:|
64th Tim Chapman 10:53:05
68th James Clancey 10:59:41
|Ronan Hickey||Jul 28, 11:52pm||Sub 11 hours. Great stuff lads! Hope you're hitting some of those local ales and bitters at pace! You should put up a race report on this forum post for anyone heading over next year.|
|Jeff Fitzsimons||Jul 28, 11:57pm||Well done to all. Especially Tim as I know he was carrying a few niggles, I blame the coach! :)|
|Rene Borg||Jul 29, 9:20am||All part of the master plan Jeff: get them Lydiard training for a while and then sell them injury free courses ;)|
|pat barry||Jul 30, 12:58pm||Paul, you did not have your running partner (Adam) with you this year! He has been struggling with a hernia for a quite a while now, not sure what is the latest news on it. Great result, two hours off last years time is some effort. I suppose you know the route options a lot better now? |
I am on a ferry on Friday night so all going well I will be running Galtee on Sunday. Hopefully I will get to say hello.
|Paul Tierney||Jul 30, 9:29pm||See you on Galtymore Pat, do say hi! Hopefully the weather will be good|
|pat barry||Jul 31, 9:36am||Weather good?|
Having a laugh aren't you!
