Antrim Coast Half Marathon 2021 (29th Aug)
Big performance from Timmy Murphy in Antrim
Timmy Murphy posted an excellent 71:09 for his debut half marathon at the Antrim Coast Half Marathon on Sunday morning 29th August. Despite not having raced over the distance before, Timmy showed great pace judgement to keep his pace around 5:25 per mile for the entire race. Timmy actually recorded a 10 mile personal best of 54:19 en route. It is a most deserved personal best for a very dedicated athlete. The event attracted a record entry of nearly 3,000 and among the large entry were two other Mullingar men. Andrew Nevin was targeting 74 minutes but knew by the halfway point that he was going to miss it, undeterred though, he worked on and finished in a good 76:33. Finally, Michael Clinton recorded 94:22 and has to be very satisfied with his performance too. The half marathon is a tough race, so well done to all three Mullingar men on their performances.
