Neil Proven 3rd in 100K Challenge

Neil Proven broke new ground for the Club during the week as he became our first member to participate in this gruelling event, the Spartans Way 100km. This event started in Ticknevin Bridge in Kildare and the athletes ran along the canal through Edenderry Harbour and then onto Rhode to Daingaen and through Tullamore and up to the village of Rahan (50KM) and then turn and run all the way back to the finish in Ticknevin Bridge. On the return journey, the athletes had to contend with a strong head wind, this didn’t deter Neil as he kept a good pace going all the way to finish 3rd in 10 hours 10 mins 18 secs, brilliant performance.
