The less bigoted among you may be interested to know that some guys from Stranmillis EPC ran this year’s marathon relay in an excellent 3:03:10 beating this year’s RP teams and would have placed them fourth on our all-time leaderboard if it weren’t for an E instead of an R. Feel free to point out any teams I should add – rumour has it some people from Trinity RPC ran this year too? And can Dromore claim to be the fastest team of the modern era due to the doubts over the legitimacy of the 2007 times?

    All the relay times can be found at

    Good man James! Kind of you to set the record straight. Not solely for me … PMo will be chuffed too! I just felt the integrity of AK was at stake!!!

    PS – those times are very beatable. Back in the day, certain team members did not train very much at all! I’ll leave you to guess who……

    “And can Dromore claim to be the fastest team of the modern era due to the doubts over the legitimacy of the 2007 times?”

    Really clutching at straws there big lad.

    It all begs the question, what was happening in RP student land between 2002 and 2005?

    I think LK should have a team next year called Letter Kenyans.

    Why no Cullybackey team this year PMO? Did you tell them it was an RP event or something? :-P

  7. James May 5, 2009 at 9:50 pm #

    Joel: Lol. I’ve got to try something to appease Dad. He looked at the leaderboard and was declared himself deeply irked that we only held 5th and 6th! I don’t want to be dragged out to train for at least another couple of weeks!

    James, turn the smileys off! Btw Faughan repudiate the claim that a team ran under their name this year, and are waiting to make their debut next year when team captain Robbo will lead them to sub 3 hour glory!

    Thanks for putting up a truer account of relay times. No Cullybackey team this year because I’m fatter and lazer than I was when i was a student. Also the marathon would need to be run in Cullybackey for any of us to go!Although after claiming first place in a fantastic touch rugby tournie today I think I may get fit for the second time in my life and make a go of this sports thing!!!!
