Le Cheile Midnight Marathon Results and Photos
Wonderful night of running in Leixlip. Tough but wonderful. A great group of people with some great performances when conditions were tough.
Below are links to the results on Le Cheile AC's FB page, photos taken by Peter Mooney and even a video he took of a lap covering all who took part. Rory Mooney was first home. Theres also a short piece from the lads on the photo site. The video was late in the race as you can see from the faces of pain!!
It was an experience to say the least and huge appreciation must go out to the lap counters who stood/sat out in the wee small hours of what for the most part stayed dry but there were showers.
The counters and marshalls were great and had 105 supportive comments for each of the runners. I don't know the ladys' name who was counting the first 15 odd miles for me but thank you very much and to Jarlath who took over from her - thanks Jarlath.
I know the rest of the field who aren't on FB would wish all their respective counters a big thank you and hope that ye enjoyed a nice lie in.
To everybody involved (Tony, Jarlath and the others) congratulations and thanks and also apologies for the half digested chinese over beside the containers. I nearly dropped out but clearing your stomach has an amazing effect of also clearing your head. I'll be back next year.
