Raivis Zakis wins WLR fm Waterford Viking marathon

Over 2,000 took part in last Saturday’s WLR Waterford Viking Marathon. The race started in the city outside Waterford Crystal Building on the Mall getting under way at 9 am. The course this year was a brand new course taking in the Waterford Greenway and finishing in its new finishing place of Carriganore in the WIT campus.
The weather conditions were ideal for the quarter and half marathon runners however by the time the marathon runners were finished it had become quite warm. The event had as we said 3 racing options for participants with a quarter-half and full marathon distances to chose from and of course there was the relay option also.
The winner of the Quarter Marathon on the day and retaining his title for 2016 was David Mansfield Clonliffe Harriers AC 36.32 with Sinead Brannigan Waterford AC taking the ladies win in a time of 46.30.
The winner of the Half Marathon was local athlete Trevor Power Waterford AC with a time of 1.13.03 and he too was retaining the title form last year, and the ladies victory for 2017 went to Ruth Fitzgerald in a time of 1.24.14.
The winner of this year’s Marathon was none other than Raivis Zakis West Waterford AC. Raivis who had finished 3rd last month in the Limerick Marathon. Raivis from the gun raced into an earkly lead with Tom Hogan of Wexford and both runners ran shoulder to shouylder throug the haklf way mark both clcoking 1.19.33, just past te 16 mile mark Raivios upped th tempo and within in a mile had dropped the Wexfoerd atjhleet, it was to stay this way throughout the final 9 miles or so as he incressed his lead crossing the finish line in Carriganore in a time of 2.37.20 with Hogan clocking 2.41.55 for 2nd.
The female winner was Tullamore Harriers, Pauline Curley who was claiming her 5th Waterford Marathon victory in a row clocking a time of 2.52.59. Well done to all our club athletes who competed over the three distances and those who took part on relay teams on the day.
