Meet and Train marathon mania!


from Galway City Harriers The past weekend saw several of the group members in action. In the Dublin marathon, we had Eileen Donoghue, Hilda McGrath and Elva Breen in action while more of the group went further afield. Galway Meet and Train has been keeping a low profile over the past year following its decision not to organise a group for the Mini Marathon. However that does not mean that the group has been slacking off..far from it!
It was off to Toronto and Niagara Falls where Dolores Foley, Geraldine Fegan and Annette Burke took part in the Niagara Falls Half Marathon last Sunday. In the full Marathon, Galway, and indeed Ireland, was represented by Mary McCann and Máire Kelly.

By all accounts, this was one of the most enjoyable events ever undertaken by the group. The full marathon started in Buffalo, New York and crossed the Peace Bridge which divides the USA from Canada. From then on, it was 22 miles of a very scenic route along the Niagara Parkway to the ultimate finish at the Niagara Falls! Who knows what 2009 will bring!!
