One of the best days of the new year saw more than 150 athletes take on the Castlebar Adventure Duathlon, with two distances to choose from and a relay option that attracted the non adventure specialists there was something for everyone in this event.
Mayo AC had 10 finishers in the Fields of Athenry 10km held in what were described as “less than ideal conditions” on St Stephen's Day. A number of them were among the prizewinners.
David Huane from Irishtown went to one of the world's top city marathons in Berlin on Sunday with high hopes of running a sub 2hr 50 pb. He had good reason to be optimistic, having run a 82.23an pb two weeks previously in the National Half Marathon championships as a member of Mayo AC's silver medal winning o35 team. However, like fourth time Berlin winner the legendary Haile Gebreselassie, Huane suffered in the latter stages but still finished in 2.57.18, a great time on the day. “I'm not built for sunny climes,” was his philosophical reaction. The temperature in Berlin increased to the low 20s shortly after the 9am start. Hopefully Huane will recover in suitably cooler conditions in the lead up to the Dublin City Marathon in less than five weeks.
