Daniel Doherty 2nd in Gloucester 50k
Daniel Doherty, who will make his debut for Ireland in the Anglo Celtic Plate 100km in March, finished second in the Gloucester 50k on 23 January.
Doherty was leading the race by some 3 minutes at 27 miles and finished in an excellent time of 3:09:05 despite suffering a chest infection. Indeed, his performance is all the more remarkable given that he only took up running a couple of years ago.
English international 100km runners Julian Rendall and Allen Smalls finished first and third, respectively.
Doherty, who runs with Basingstoke and Mid Hants AC in the UK, will be a fantastic addition to the Irish 100km team.
1. Julian Rendall 3:07:22

3. Allen Smalls 3:09:41
