Congratulations go out to Helen Taylor and Danaa Callow on completing the Liverpool half marathon both setting personal best times for the distance, Helen Taylor finished 4th in her age group in a time of 01:36:51 and Danaa finished 34th in the same age group in a time of 01:53:39. The ladies say that the last 4ish miles were tough going running into a head wind, but they enjoyed the every minute of the race. Well done to all the other Manx runners who took part and for all the monies raised for their charities, in particular Northern AC runner Nikki Boyde who finished 1st in the same age group in a time of 01:26:12.
Volunteers and Helpers required
Western Athletic Club has been providing athletes both young and old with the opportunities to take part in fun sessions and compete both on and off the Island for 34 years. If we are to continue, we need to get more parents and volunteers involved in the future running of the club. If you want to find out more about the different ways in which you can ensure the future of the club please email email@example.com or ask on Thursday evenings at QE2

“Running a marathon is an experience that's difficult to put into words, how you describe the physical and mental challenges of the 26.2-mile race to those who have never ran one. Well finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement. It's a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible. The thirst you feel in your throat and lungs will be gone minutes after the race is over. The pain in your legs within days, but the memories of your finish will last with you forever. “
Geoff & Helen
