Middle Distance Heroics
In early July, Irish International and Dunleer AC athlete Tomás Cotter won the Men's 1500meters in the British Milers Club in Watford, London in an amazing 3:43. This was a PB for Tomás and a fantastic performance on the track. At Morton Stadium a week later, Tomás ran a life time best for 800m in 1.50 and then on July 12th Tomás won the Dunleer 4 Mile road race in a new course record 19.31. Tomás will run in the Morton Mile élite International on Thursday July 24th, hoping to be one of the few Irish men to run sub4 minutes for a mile. Thanks to Tomás and Garry Campbell who were at the July summer camp helping out with the sessions and enjoying the fun and games! Garry Campbell and Diarmuid Mc Keown have both been invited to run in the junior mile race. Thomas Barr will also be in action!
