The Charleville Half Marathon was held on Sunday, September 10 in humid conditions. It is an extremely popular race that is hosted by North Cork AC. We had 9 athletes compete over the long distance of 21km. First home for the club and continuing his great form was John Ryan 1:22:32, he was closely followed Tom O'Connell 1:22:43, Linda Grogan 1:28:50, Gerry O'Neill 1:29:01, Barry Hartnett 1:31:49, Michael Moore 1:38:13, Karen Coughlan 1:38:47, John Barry 1:44:22 and Pat Hayes 2:18:55.
