Dambusters Half Marathon

We’ve been closely following the progress of our athletes who’ve been methodically ticking off the events in this years Pure Running Half Marathon Series, and its great to see them reach the final stage in the Silent Valley, Co Down.  A new inclusion in the series, the Born 2 Run event was upgraded from 10 miles last year with extra road and trail sections.

It was a pretty wet day for it, reducing visibility of the stunning backdrops, but it was still a light-hearted affair.

Andy McIntyre put in a solid performance as always with a time of 1h36m33s.  Darren Moffett rounded off the series with a great time of 1h45m32s.

Verity Cornford put in a great effort with a strong personal time of 2h01m50s with Martin Doherty just behind on 2h02m48s.  Paul Edgar finished with a time of 2h10m25s.  Catherine Fearon and Selina Myles finished together on 2h21m20s.

Darren Moffett and Paul Edgar, having completed all 10 events in the series will win the coveted Pure Running Championship jacket  at a special ANI award ceremony.  Andy McIntyre and Catherine Fearon will get placings in the championship series.   Well done everyone.
