 Weekly roundup  Monday 1st April 2019

You wait all week for a running event and a whole pile come together ! Quite a week/ weekend again !

Thursday saw round 1 of the 2019 Grand Prix Series at Santry Stadium.

Captain Tom Cassidy lined up with a slightly weakened but none the less impressive team and results were delivered.

FRANK WHITE 5 MILES.  George Brady 29/55 (First place)  Tom Cassidy 35/23  Carmel Ward 36/09 (PB)  Maura Shaughnessey 36/47 (PB)  Kevin Greene 40/48  (PB)  Siobhan Mulvey  41/58 (PB)

 

Friday saw the start of the Dublin to Belfast Ultra and the Belfast to Dublin to Belfast Ultra. DBRC were represented in both events. Charles O Duffy took on the daunting task of the return ultra. Sadly it was not to be and Charles had to pull up at 78 miles but a fine effort nonetheless.

In the Dublin to Belfast (107 miles) we were represented by Joe Cole and Gregory O'Beirne. Never having run more than 50k. both had a super run coming in with impressive times.  Joe was 15th in 25h 56m 00s and Greg 16th in 26h 22m 07s.  Both Joe and Greg are extremely grateful to their crew, members Helen Smith, Maura Shaughnessy and Ger Copeland.  Tom Cassidy glady pitched in and helped along the way and thanks to all other members who supported along the route, this was a total team effort in the best DBRC spiirit of the club and well done to all. DBRC have a great record in this race, a savage event on opens roads, with 4 finishers last year including 1st place.

Most excellent performances all round at the Donadea 50k Irish National Championship. This ain't no marathon and although only 50k, there's just something about the event that makes it tough and rewarding. The open air of Donadea woods becomes a cauldron as the clock ticks down and the legs  feel every rise and fall. Anyone who has been there knows exactly what it takes. DBRC came second in the Team Category and our boys came 3rd and 11th and a pb for Gary!  Congrats to all who competed, this event is right at the highest level in Ireland, (put it on your list !!) and kudos to all the members who came all the way out to give fabulous support and help !
