Connemara Ultra Marathon + Marathon
Last Sunday the 1st of April the annual Connemara Ultra Marathon, Marathon and half Marathon took place, our very own Brendan took part in his 1st Ultra Marathon (respect to the man). This course is by no means an easy feat and not for the faint hearted. Brendan ran a fantastic time of 5:29:17, remember this is 39.3 MILES!!!!!!!, also well done to Maciej who completed it in 5:12:52, Maciej is part of the Fermoy Runners and has the fittest dog around who completes as much mileage as Maciej. Well done to both of the lads.(Lets hope Brendans toes recover quickly and get back training in time for Cork). The winning time of the Ultra was 3hrs 56 mins!!!!!!!!!!, also the marathon was won by Bandons George Waugh in 2:36:21.
