Two Carrick AC runners, Martina O’Dwyer and Patrick Roche, made the journey to the Lee Valley Stadium in London for the British Masters Indoor Championships recently and performed with great distinction in their respective events.
Patrick finished in an excellent fourth place in the 3,000 metres with a time of 9:46, while Martina won the ladies’ 3,000 metres in a new Irish record time of 10:20. Well done and congratulations to both from all in the club.
