TOKYO MARATHON: Our New York based runner Kieran O'Mahony was in action at the Tokyo Marathon.  In Tokyo’s second year as a World Marathon Major, more than 36,000 athletes crossed the start line on a cool, overcast day in Japan’s capital city. The conditions proved to be perfect for marathon racing, as Chumba bettered the men’s course record by more than a minute (previously 2:06:50 set by Kenya’s Dennis Kimetto last year), and Tsegaye carved more than three minutes off the women’s course record (previously 2:25:28 set by Ethiopia’s Atsede Habtamu in 2012).
BALLYCOTTON 10 MILE: This very popular 10 miles Road Race attracted a full field (capped at 3600 peoples) of runners.  St.Brendan's AC had William O'Riordan finishing overall in 391st position in a time of 1:09:02.  His time was also the 4th fastest in his age group.
THANK YOU from St. Brendan's Athletic Club to all who helped out at the marathon as it came through Ardfert last Sunday, and especially to all who helped with the clean and tidy up after the race.  Many thanks also for the co operation with traffic management.
