Sarah secures gold
THE national half marathon championships took place once more alongside the Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon in Dublin recently with some strong running by Co. Wicklow athletes.
Sarah Baryga of Bray Runners claimed gold in the O40 category with Catherin O’Connor of Parnall AC claiming the silver.
The Co. Wicklow women’s team of Baryga, O’Connor and Ann Marie Kenny also claimed gold in the team event and were awarded the masters title even though they won the overall crown given that they were the fastest in the contest.
There was gold for Michael Knight in the )65 category while William Belton secured bronze in the same age group.
It’s a busy weekend for athletics in the county with the Ferns four-miler taking place on Saturday at 5pm while a packed field of 600 will set off in the Blessington Lakes 10K on Saturday morning at 10.30am.
Best of luck to all involved.
