Balina Half Marathon PB's all round...

On Saturday Morning a group of Sligo AC Athletes made the Short Journey to Ballina to compete in the River Moy Half Marathon, This excellently organised event is held along the banks of the River Moy incorporating the beautiful surroundings of Beleek Woods and had a field of 380 runners on the morning of the event. It was a great outing for the Sligo contingent as Eamon Dunbar and Enda Dineen crossed the line together in a time of 1:30 both inside the top 25 across the finish line, both these lad's just after completing Marathons in the last few Day's and weeks, Next was Joe Davey who ran a personal best of 1:43 followed by Linda Higgins in a PB of 1:55, Mairead McMorrow in a PB of 1:56, Sarah McCaffrey PB of 1:58, Corina Kiernan was next in her first outing at the Half Marathon distance in a time of 1:59 closely followed by Sharon Dineen in a PB of 2:00. This sets all these endurance runners up nicely for the coming year which will no doubt lead to the start line of The Dublin City Marathon.
