Cork runners dominate Irish 24 hour championships



The Irish 24 Hour Championships were held in Victoria Park in Belfast over the weekend and this year, it also doubled up as the World 24 Hour Championships.

In the Irish Championships, Eoin Keith from Cobh won Gold with 153 miles, just short of the national record of 248.982K / 154.xx Miles set by Thomas Maguire in Monaco in 2009.

Alex O'Shea of St.Finbarr's AC was the third Irish man home to win a national Bronze medal in this event. What's also impressive is that Alex finished ahead of plenty of other runners who were part of the official Irish team.

Alex just missed out on the standard to be part of the team last year but has obviously improved a lot on the last 12 months.
