Racing season continued this week with Termoneeny Running Club members travelling far and wide to cover both marathon and 5k distances ,with some fantastic results.
After an injury and several weeks of very limited training, Gary O’Doherty travelled to Boston with his wife and TRC member Anne, to take on the challenge of the 2019 Boston Marathon on Monday 15th April, Patriots Day. The Boston marathon is renowned for being not only the world’s oldest, but also one of its most challenging races. There was no doubt that Gary would give it his best, despite his recent injury, and true to form Gary turned in a very consistent run, finishing in an impressive 3:08:43. Congratulations Gary, thanks you for representing Termoneeny Running Club in Boston so well!
