Time for a look back: Dublin Marathon 2010

With the action grinding to a halt once again (unless you are doing this weekend’s Dublin Marathon virtually, let us know) we thought we’d start a “Let’s look back” series. To get the ball rolling we go back this day 10 years to the 2010 Dublin Marathon. On that back holiday Monday October 25th Sergiu Ciobanu retained his National Marathon title and let the men to a fine team win.

As always there was a great Clonliffe crew involved, with the juveniles involved at the baggage area from day break and many others involved on the volunteering front. On the streets of the capital several Clonliffe athletes toed the line.

The defending National Champion Sergiu Ciobanu with an impressive 2.19.33 retained his National Marathon Title. With Sergiu followed home by Brian MacMahon in 2.27.35 in 23rd place just ahead of Lorcan Cronin in 24th place 2.27.38 these three combined to take the team title with all of 27 minutes to spare on Rathfarnham with West Waterford 3rd. Other stand outs were the PB’s for Conor Delaney 2.47.14, Mark Bermingham 2.49.50, Eoin Murray 2.54.41, Jeremy Chapman 2.57.59 and Fergus Keenan 3.02.03. Paddy Tuite with 3.07.28 was within a few places of a national O/50 medal, and of course The Cornell Frank Behan successfully completed his 31st Dublin.
