Run The Gauntlet Half Marathon
It was a good day for Derek Griffin, claiming victory on this very challenging route. Over 90 runners/walkers took part, battling for different colour finisher T-shirt ( RED - sub 1:45 hrs, black sub 2:00hrs and WHITE survivor) where hill running, climbing and free fall running skills are essential. Well deserved win for Derek as he lead from the start, setting a very fast pace and improving his own result from last year by 5min (finishing second overall in 2012). Congratulation to St.Brendan's AC athletes with one red and 2 black T-shirts for collection.
