As the title says, three new club records have been set
Johnny Gill now holds the 0/50 record for a Half Marathon with a time of 1:27:47 in the Royal Parks Half beating John Gurney’s 1:29:00 that he ran in Amsterdam last year
Brian O’Connor has lowered the Senior Marathon record with a time of 2:47:13 at Berlin beating his own (set in Derry only 3 months ago) record by a whopping 5 and a half minutes!
And to make amends for losing his Half Marathon record, John Gurney set a new O/50 record for the Marathon with a time of 3:14:49 also at Berlin beating Martin Cunningham’s Boston effort of 3:16:34
Tremendous times Gentlemen!
So Johnny Gill, I will happily celebrate with you and toast your achievement with that beer you still owe me ;-)
STOP PRESS - UPDATE
Sincere apologies to Geraldine Schaer who was omitted. Geraldine managed to knock a couple of minutes of the club record she held for Half Marathon by completing the Ealing Half in 1:32:37. Well done Geraldine!
