Michael Stevenson continued on his Ultra marathon training with a weekend of marathon running around Monaghan. On Saturday he recorded 4:34:16 and the following day continued with a 4:47:38 which placed him 21st for the two day festival.
The lure of Lamagan and Binnian proved more attractive a proposition than Ballyholme esplanade and Shandon Drive for Mark Weir on Saturday as the latest NIMRA action took place. Covering 11.5km in 1:33:47 may not sound like much but with an 850M elevation during the race and surfaces that would make walking difficult, just getting round was the priority at the weekend. His time represented 20th position overall and 3rd in the O45.
