The Cahir crew benefited from the experience of international marathon runner – and former ABP Cahir colleague – Sergiu Ciobanu, who provided support and advice to the runners in the lead up to the event. 

The fastest ABP runner was David Griffin from ABP Newry who finished in an impressive 2 hours, 55 minutes, 29 seconds.
