Barcelona Half Marathon 2023 (19th Feb)
Andrew Nevin with Aaron Smith (Cilles AC)
Andrew Nevin certainly made his trip to Barcelona to run in the Barcelona Half Marathon extremely worthwhile. Finishing well up in an excellent 166th place of the more than 19,000 that toed the line early on Sunday morning 19th February, running in very pleasant partly cloudy conditions and 16degC, Andrew started relatively conservatively and passed the 5k mark in 17 minutes 24 seconds, but from that point on, each subsequent 5k marker point saw him running sub-17 minutes 5k splits, and he slowly increased his pace slightly over the course of the race to finish in a fantastic 1 hour 11 minutes 29 seconds, a very big personal best for the distance. Congratulations to Andrew from everyone at Mullingar Harriers on this terrific performance.
