Gary O’Hanlon today retained the National 50k championship at Donadea Forest Park in a time of 2.50.46. Gary’s winning time was some 4 minutes faster than his 2018 winning time and was thus a new Irish record. Making matters even more impressive was that fact that his record run was achieved by a winning margin of a massive 26 minutes!
