Rain or shine – the 2023 Donegal Half Marathon was a morning of main victories and private achievements.

4 hundred contributors took half within the 21.09km race in Letterkenny this morning.

Yared Derese of Carrick Aces AC, set a brand new course document of 1:07:22, taking two and a half minutes off the earlier course document of 1:09:51 that was set by Raheny’s Freddy Keron Sittuk in 2015. Second within the occasion was Shane O’Donnell from Rosses AC in 1:13:38, with Letterkenny AC’s Philip McHugh third in 1:15:28.

Helen McCready from Rosses AC, winner of the senior girls’s title in 2022, made a profitable defence of her crown when taking the victory in 1:21:54. Runner-up was Finn Valley’s Natasha Kelly in 1:24:32, with Ciara Cunningham of Tir Chonaill AC third in 1:24:36.
