Ballycotton '10' winner Siobhan O'Doherty runs 2:45 in Paris Marathon
Siobhan won the 2017 Ballycotton 10 mile road race at the start of March in a time of 58m 09s.
This was a new personal best time for Siobhan beating her previous time of 2h 45m 29s which she also set in Paris back in 2011.
Just to give you an idea of just how good a time Siobhan ran, she was just 5 seconds outside the qualifying time of 2:45:00 for the marathon at the IAAF World Championships. This will be held in London in August of 2017 and the qualification period is between 1 January, 2016 and midnight 23 July, 2017.
