CAITRIONA Jennings’ brave bid to set a new world record over 100k came to an end yesterday.
The Letterkenny woman attempted the feat while 12 weeks pregnant.
Competing at the Project Carbon X2 event in Chandler, Arizona, Jennings withdrew around the 60k mark.
Jennings, from Hawthorn Heights in Letterkenny, was through 55k in 4:08:18.
Jennings took part in the women’s marathon at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and she holds the Irish 50k record of 3:19:47.
The Irish record for 100k, of 7:52:45, set by Carndonagh woman Helena Crossan in Galway back in 2009, still stands.Tags:
