Clonmel AC take National Senior Marathon Team Title

After about a delay of about a month, Athletics Ireland have now updated the results of the national marathon which was part of the Dublin Marathon back in late October. It has now been confirmed that Clonmel AC senior womens team won the national title.

From Clonmel AC........We have just received confirmation that our Senior ladies team in this year’s National Marathon Championships which was run in association with the Dublin City Marathon are the National Senior Women Inter Club Marathon Champions. Congrats to Angela McCann, Siobhain McHugh and Aine Roche on a brilliant team achievement, absolutely fantastic, this team event was decided on a combined time of each club’s best three finishers. For the record Angela McCann ran 3 hours 5 mins 50 secs, Siobhain McHugh ran 3 hours 19 mins 4 secs and Aine Roche ran 3 hours 36 mins 43 secs for a combined time of 10 hours 1 min 37 secs with Crusaders of Dublin 2nd on a combined time of 10 hours 9 mins 12 secs and Dundrum South Dublin 3rd on 10 hours 22 mins 18 secs.
These were three fantastic achievements and a special congrats to both Siobhain McHugh and Aine Roche on winning their first All Ireland medal and Gold at that, absolutely fantastic and everyone at Clonmel AC are truly delighted for this talented trio.
Indeed Clonmel Athletic Club are maybe the only Club outside of Dublin to have teams that have won both the Senior Men’s and Senior Women’s Inter Club National Marathon Titles.
