Yesterday`s Charleville Half Marathon in County Cork drew a top class field to ensure a very fast race. The Clonliffe athletes who decided to travel to Cork and miss the Dublin Half Marathon were rewarded with some very fast times. Sergiu Ciobanu finished in 3rd place in a time of 66.18, his Dublin marathon preparations clearly going well with some 5 weeks to go. Declan Power took 1st place O/40, 15th overall in a new pb of 71.02. Irish international marathon runner Barbara Sanchez was 3rd women (39th overall) in 77.35 and Ailish Malone pbed with a 52nd place overall finish in a time of 79.02.
