Amazing April–International Marathon Month
What an amazing month for the club at all sorts of distances, from the Omagh Half to the Paris full, Boston to Queens 6k, it really was a special month all round! Amazing PBs. First time marathoners, records broke and club runners putting some of the country’s elite to the sword, amazing all round.
Well done to Owen Eagers in Boston, the oldest of them all,(marathons that is!) who has come back after a difficult year with a superb 3.23 in Boston in his pursuit of the world majors. Keep it going Owen nearly there!
An super day for team St. Peter’s in today’s 30th anniversary Omagh half marathon. A long history with the race and today 26 club runners all hitting great times. A field of 2350 and James Monaghan putting some of the country’s elite to the sword in a 12th place! Paddy Cornwell had a great run in his first ever race at the young age of 58! Well done folks! A great time from John Cawley who is on the crusade to do a half marathon in every county in Ireland
