Dublin Marathon 30th October 2016 Ilford AC siblings Carol and Malcolm Muir both competed in the Dublin Marathon the previous weekend.

As a result he suffered in the latter part of the following day’s marathon after going through halfway in around 1 hour 21 minutes. Nevertheless he still …Read More
