CoLAC at Belfast Marathon Relay

Tue 8 May 2012--admin

There were many City of Lisburn athletes competing in yesterday’s Belfast City Marathon as members of work, charity or gym teams although just one official City of Lisburn AC mixed team in the relay event. The team in order of running was Ruth Little, Desi McLarnon, Declan Morgan (captain), Sharon Kelly with the in-form Grainne Keenan on the anchor leg.

Conditions were the worst they’ve been on May Day for many years – wet and cold with the temperature only 6 degrees at the start. The squad did well to finish as 13th mixed team and 33rd team overall from almost 2100 teams who completed the course. Their time was 3:11.30 which was a good run in the conditions and by all accounts all members still enjoyed the day as much as ever despite their soaking.

The club record for a mixed team of 3:06 from 2011 survives for another year!
