Gary Slevin flew the flag for the Spartans at today’s Strabane-Lifford Half Marathon, finishing 4th on 73m 47s behind Kenyans Dan Tanui 66m 09s and Eric Koech 67m 22s with the evergreen Stephen Duncan of Omagh Harriers third on 69m 47s.
A hard working effort from Gary on the revised course and he hopes to feature regularly on the busy road circuit over the summer.
Letterkenny’s Natasha Adams easily took the women’s race honours , 9th overall in an excellent 75m 21s, chased home by Claire McGuigan of Lifford-Strabanr Ac in 85m 51s and Foyle Valley duo Gemma McGinty 92m 37s and F50 Grainne Neill 92m 40s. Well done All!!
Tanui will be on the line for the upcoming Walled City Marathon and should be a serious threat to 2014 and 2015 champion, fellow Kenyan Freddy Sittuk. Its on Sunday 5th June by the way.
