FOUR SGR members took part in different distances that are part of the Tollymore Trail Marathon in Tollymore Park on Saturday.

Eamon Murphy ran in the Marathon section and this just after doing the Dublin Marathon weeks before, but he looked fresh and had a great run over the trails.

Martin McShane and Seamus Loughran ran the Half Marathon on the day and Seamus came in with a great fifth place finish in a very big field of runners who took part.

Martin who loves trails and mountain running had a great event and no doubt has something bigger planned in the pipeline after this.

Slieve Gullion Runner Sharin Byrne ran for the club in the 10k event and once again did the south Armagh club proud.

Well done to SGR Lawrence Malone (00:47:10) who represented the club proudly at the Decathlon Belfast 10K and was the sole member of the club to take part.

RESULTS:

Eamon Murphy Marathon - 03:51:00, Seamus Loughran Half Marathon - 01:33:22, Martin McShane - Half Marathon 02:27:18, Sharin Byrne 10K – 01:38:01.3.
