Born To Run Trail Marathon 2017

Congratulations to everyone who took part in and completed our first full and half trail marathon in Glanageenty last Saturday morning.

Many thanks go to the Glanageenty Loopers, BTR and their committee for helping us put this event on, without their support, this wouldn’t have been able to go ahead, so thank you!

This was a low key  event to help Brian Byrne get his 99th marathon, before doing his 100th in Listowel in January. The response was great, with the short notice of the event only being advertised a month before the race day, planning of the event, and with not much promotion, so thank you all who came out to do it. I hope you had a great day out there 😊 Feedback would be most appreciated, as it’s an event that we hope to be able to do again in the new year.< /span><ictures from the event are available on our Facebook Site.  Results from the event are as follows:
