BELFAST HALF MARATHON
Huge congratulations to all the Newry City Runners today on some fantastic times ran. We had 3 category places, Patricia Brown was 1st in her age category while Pat Rocks was also 1st in his age category. Back from injury and also securing a 2nd place in his age category was none other than Willie McCracken.
Also we had 2 personal bests with Patricia Mc Mullen taking 6 minutes off her halfmarathon time and Michael Englishby taking 2 minutes off his also, The club is really performing well at the moment and the times show that speed sessions and the great guidance from the NCR coaches is paying off.
