Former marathon winners place in Croghan Chase
Previous Dublin City Marathon winner Sean Hehir claimed first prize at the 8K Croghan Chase in Coolgreany in aid of Talk to Tom and Croghan AC.
Freddie Stuk, another former Dublin City Marathon winner, came in second, while Croghan ACs very own Brian Maher placed third.
The Chase raised €1,200 each for Talk to Tom and Croghan AC.
Gary Doyle, PRO for Croghan AC, said this was their first year and they are very pleased with how the event went.
‘To have two of the top athletes in the country take part in the Chase is amazing,’ said Gary. ‘We had over 200 athletes take part, with 48 from our very own club.’
There was also a 4K fun run trail for people to take part in. Dara Cloake from Sliabh Buidhe Rovers AC placed first, followed by Croghan AC member Jesse Foley.
A prize giving ceremony took place in the Coolgreany Inn afterwards and a raffle. Croghan AC thanked the stewards, volunteers, organisers, the runners and sponsors.
