The National League round two included as usual a number of guest races yesterday in Athlone. Highlight of the day was Leo Morgan’s outstanding run in series 2 of the 60 where he ran a new PB and Clonliffe Harriers club record of 6.74. Leo has been in superb form this season and has had his eye very much on Jeremy Phillips club record, having come within two hundredths of a second a couple of weeks ago he got everything right yesterday.
Also featuring in yesterday’s guest races was Chris Sibanda in the 60, Chris ran 6.93 and in series 2 6.92. Lauren Carr ran 8.16. François Croller made his Clonliffe Harriers debut in the 200 winning his heat in 22.72. Also making his debut in the Clonliffe vest was Oren Kenny in the 800 where he recorded a time of 2.07.61. Jenny Johnston similarly took in an 800 running 2.25.26. There was good representation in the women’s 1500 where Greta Stremiyte was 5th in 4.40.31, Laura Tuite 7th (4.47.80) and Sarah Bateson 11th (5.00.18). Meghan o’Keeffe endured a tough race in the 3000 with the small field spread out finishing 4th in 11.10.08
