This year’s Rathfarnham 5k on 30th of September was another huge success for the club. Times were again very fast in one of the country’s premier 5k road races. Well done to the well-oiled organising machine on running a flawless event.  The men’s team of Sean Hehir, Mitchel Byrne and Louis McCarthy came first overall and the women’s fourth. You can study the FULL RESULTS HERE, look at the CLUB PHOTOS HERE and see the FULL REPORT HERE. Well done to everybody who took part.

It was an incredible day at the Berlin marathon with Eluid Kipchoge taking a massive 1min18secs off the world record. But hot on Kipchoge’s heels was Rathfarnham WSAF AC’s Bobby Murphy who took a full 5mins off his PB to finish 53rd overall and 7th M35. Congratulations on a fantastic performance Bobby, but we suspect that there is more to come!  The only other Rathfarnham WSAF AC athlete was Micheál Murphy who is targeting DCM but still ran a speedy 3:17 long tempo in Berlin!
