Global Virtuals

Clare Morgan, one of Blackrock A.C.’s Master Women runners has registered to complete six global half marathons during 2021. Clare completed her first global half marathon, Shanghai on a windy 13th February in a time of 2 hours, 17 minutes, 26 seconds. She was second in her age category (W60). Clare recently completed the Rio half marathon on the 27th of February, in more favourable weather conditions in a time of 2 hours and 42 seconds. Again, Clare was second in her age category. Clare completed all of these half marathons within a 5Km radius of her home. Well done Clare and best of luck for the remaining four global half marathons.

Sinéad Howard starting the Malin to Mizen Head 600Km challenge in early February and is 75% of the way there, just entering into Co. Cork having completed 450Km of the journey. Battling wind, rain, sunshine and sleet, Sinéad has persevered on the journey, all completed within a 5Km radius due to ongoing COVID restrictions. Sinéad hopes to complete the challenge by the end of April.

Lorraine and her colleagues from the Association of Women Travel Executives will have reached Perth this week having run 535kms of 120 activities! This round the world challenge is now entering week 7, clocking up 3,900km! We thoroughly enjoyed Japan, visiting all the virtual sites especially the Bamboo Forest and traditional restaurants in the Gion district Kyoto!
