On Sunday Christian Fortes O’Neill and James McNally (TRC dynamic duo) travelled to Monaghan to take part in the Monaghan Phoenix 5th anniversary marathon festival. It’s been a while since these two have ran a race together. Following the antics of Christian and James in 2017, it was wonderful to see both runners racing together again. Christian broke 4 hours running an amazing time of 3:55 and James completed the 26.2 miles in a super time of 4:42. The route consisted of one lap around Monaghan Town and 4 loops of Rossmore forest park. This was a very hilly course with difficult terrain. This was Christian’s 46th Marathon and James’ 33rd. Well done to the both of you!
