August 14 Update: Donegal Ultra & your club notes


A rare week where we had no one taking on a triathlon course but some of our bravados saw months of training pay off as they tackled the Donegal Ultra 333 course.

Siobhan Coyle made it look like a walk, or cycle, in the park to cross the line as the first female in a time of 17:14:07 and Queen of the Donegal Ultra, congratulations Siobhan!

Seamus Kelly was our first man home in a time of 13:27:52. His time was even more impressive as he covered a distance a distance of 337 after taking a wrong turn near Portnoo. Paddy Doherty and Patrick Patton weren’t far behind with times of 13:43:44 and 15:09:15 respectively. Well done lads!

The only other club member in action this weekend was Carol McCabe who set a PB at the Monaghan 5 mile with a time of 46:35. Great running!
