WELCOME TO ST.PETERS ATHLETICS CLUB
June Round Up-
What a month for club Runners completing in events from 100meters to 52,000meters! The Maiden City Marathon is proving to be the highlight for many club runners, a great team effort from St Peter’s with PBs all round! What an amazing achievement for Stephen Dunn in completing the Mourn Ultra 52 miles of Mournes! Also John Cawley on his half marathon tour of Ireland clocking up 22 halfs in 22 countys. And great success for the youth with Emma and Tiernan firsts in the lakes 5k and Aghalee 10 k!
Great times coming through from team St. Peter’s in the Derry City Marathon today, class running guys! Pbs all round! Special mention to the senior master of the club Paul Casey, just short of his 57th birthdayin the Walled City Marathon 2019. As usual very warm and humid again but with strong head winds and a bit of rain for good measure. Absolutely delighted to finish in 3.49 on such a tough course. That’s a new course PB by 16 mins.
What a day for Stephen Dunn with his longest race ever 52 miles 7800 feet elevation across the 7 Mourne mountains over and back again .He had rain, wind, sunshine and loads of mud took slightly longer than planned but got it done. What an achievement!
Aghalee 5k/10k charity run. Super event with lovely sausage and chip supper afterwards. Huge congratulations to Tiarnan on winning the 5k tonight, class lad. Congratulations also to Gillian McCrory who was second lady home in the 10k with a new Pb to boot.
Smashing times from club runners in last nites Lisburn half and 10k races, with over 2500 runners taking park, our club was well up in all sections, This event has always well supported from the club, with some runners first taking it on 35 years ago! Well done to some of the senior masters proving we really are a club for all!
Well didn’t we just go and win it!!! Jenna Burton who was part of the Female relay champions of Energia 24 2019. What a team who all pulled together and ran beyond anything they had ever done before. Over 150 miles achieved between the girls in 24 hours!
What a real mixture at Energia 24 for Barry Shanks (or 17 for me). Started fine then suffered a bit with a calf niggle before finding my second wind with some great support. Tried to take a smart approach to it but in the end it wasn’t happening and I had a decision to make, after a break at around 4am followed by a couple of laps to see how I was I pulled out. A big DNF. On the plus side it was an experience and I ran further than I have before and for a longer time than before (that’ll be my limits, never again). 70.8 miles or there about in 17 hours.
The photographs tell it all, What a great night. Well done to all of you. I really don’t know how you guys kept it going, race after race. Particular thanks to Dwyer for all of the behind the scenes organisation as well as his work on the day. Thank you also to Patricia for organising the refreshments and to all of those who helped her on the night. A proud night indeed for St. Peter’s A.C. We’re such a great wee team.
