Well done to all the Rathfarnham Rats who competed in the first Dublin Graded Series Track Meet at Morton Stadium on Wednesday. It was a fine Spring evening at Morton Stadium, ideal running conditions. First up on the night was Brian "The Fuirous" Fury in the 10,000 meters, the first event in the Dublin Graded Endurance Project. Brian finished 2nd in a time of 34:00.
Next up was the 1500 meters, with three Rathfarnham athletes competing. Gerard "The Cobra" Claffey came 6th in grade C in a season opener of 4:33. Patrick "Le Maitre" Marjolet was victorious in the second grade C race in 4:25, closely followed by Aaron "New Gun" Browne, 4th in 4:29. Cillian "The Kid" Doherty of WSAF finished 11th in the grade B race in a time of 4:27.
Finally a big congratulations to "Deadly" David Scanlon who recently won the most improved athlete in DCU.
