Belfast Marathon - review

The newspapers are reporting that Kenyan Jacob Chesire cruised to victory in 2hrs 14 mins.  It is surprising that they have failed to note the emergence of Northern Ireland newest up and coming athlete, Jill Hamill.

Jill completed the marathon in 3hr 13 mins and whilst we are awaiting official results it appears that she was within the top ten female runners and perhaps even  in the top three from Northern Ireland.  We will provide an update later when the official results are released.

Needless to say that yesterday was a proud day for me (Jonny) and the rest of the family, made even more special as the whole family were able to get out to cheer her along.

See below for some pics from the day.
