On Saturday 6th July the annual Powerscourt 7k (Bray Cancer Care) took place, a great event and one which is always very well organised.

Tony Brannigan ran 36.57, Mary Dawson, 37.45 and Diana Doll ran 38.47. Great to see Tadgh Twoomey Sr run 42.52. (Tadgh is well known to most of our members). Full results are available on www.regtagtiming.ie Well done to all who took part.
The Clontarf Half Marathon was held on Saturday 13th July. The day was exceptionally warm and the course, although flat, is very demanding. We had a couple of athletes competing, Joe Kelly ran 1hr. 27.18 and Dominic Horan ran 1.34.14. The mens race was won by Brian Leahy, Raheny Shamrocks in 1.14.55, and the womens race was won by Ashling Jordan in 1.25.20.
