Berlin Marathon. Well done to our GCH athletes who ran the Berlin Marathon last weekend. An impressive 2:19:06 from Ciaran Faherty who placed 65th overall.  Martin Kearney finished second in his age category in a terrific 2:59:10, Malachy Wolohan ran 3:14:58, Dave Keaney 2:53:15, Karen Quirke 3:49:36, Leonor Rodriguez 4:14:02. Well done all!

Loughrea 10k. In Loughrea, first GCH male was Paul Keane in 38.19 while first GCH female was Mary Kealy.

Spartathon 246km Ultra. Super coach Jerome Debize travelled to Greece to run the Sparathon 246km Ultra from Athens to Sparta! Temperatures of 30 degrees and eighty percent humidity took its toll on many of the competitors. Jerome ran 123km of the distance in 16 hours (and could not eat from 80km). Though not having completed the full distance, this was still a terrific achievement in such conditions and no doubt Jerome will be back for another attempt! 197 finished the race (out of 400!).
