Richard doesn't do things by "HALF"
Sligo AC athlete Richard Gorman from Colooney ran a superb personal best in today's Longford half marathon, Richard ran 74min 29sec to finish 2nd male and third overall just behind our Olympic Marathoner Linda Byrne from Dublin. This is just reward for Richard who trains exceptionally hard and can be seen pounding the tar of the Sligo to Colooney dual Carriageway some mornings that early that the birds haven't even got out of their nests. Richard was no sooner across the finish line but he was heard saying that he now needs to go sub 74...Well done Richard from all in Sligo AC and we have no doubt that we will be very soon reading about the sub 74.
