March Athletic Club runners complete marathon and half-marathon

TWO members of March Athletic Club have completed a marathon and a half-marathon as the club continues to go from strength to strength.

Jason Perring ran the Dublin Marathon in a time of three hours 31.08 minutes as more than 13,000 runners completed the largest ever field in the event’s 31st year.

Melissa Neal was the eighth lady to finish the Stroud half-marathon in a field of 1,596 athletes after crossing the line in one hour 21.04 minutes.

The club are still offering the chance for runners to join March AC free of charge until the end of the year to help with their preparations for next year’s London Marathon.
