15 Lucan Harriers headed south to the Dingle Peninsula to take on the Dingle Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday 1st September. A very hilly but stunning route taking in some of the most beautiful scenery in Ireland – even if some of it was obscured by the low cloud which was very welcome to keep the temperatures down.
In the full Marathon Eileen O’Brien finished in a time of 4.51.54 and was 2nd in her age category.
In the Half Marathon Amanda Breen was the first Lucan Harrier home when she broke the 2 hour mark for the Half Marathon in a time of 1.59.45.
