Mari Johnston showed her true class in the Master’s World Championship in Poland today with an outstanding run to finish 3rd overall in the race and 2nd in her category with a time of 33:30.
As usual, Mari went out hard from the start and dug deep on the hilly 4-lap 8km course. In a star-studded field of national champions, Mari tore up the form book as she was ranked in the twenties on PB times. Previous DCM winner Annette Kealy pipped her for the gold which meant Ireland took home team gold.
Terry Hayes’s hill training on the rugby pitch is standing her in good stead. There will be bonfires lit in Cloonacool for her return tomorrow evening.
