Termoneeny Running Club News week ending 20th October, 2019

It was a fantastic week for Termoneeny Running Club.  Thomas Doherty came first in the Tamlaght O’Crilly 5k and prizes were won by Tony Toner and Tom Halferty at Fergal’s Ten Miler.  A new personal best was recorded by Michael Burke who ran a sub-19 minute time for a 5k.  In addition to these achievements, excitement is mounting at TRC because a long period of conscientious training has almost reached its culmination for members who are taking part in the Dublin City Marathon next weekend.  The club wishes all its marathon runners the very best of luck.
