National Marathon Championship – Statement

Athletics Ireland have tonight (November 1 2017) informed Raheny Shamrock Athletic Club that Freddy Sittuk has been removed from the 2017 national marathon championship due to a technical infringement of the eligibility rule.

Freddy Sittuk remains the club’s highest placed finisher at the 2017 SEE Airtricity Dublin Marathon.

Secondly, Raheny Shamrock Athletic Club wish to confirm that the club removed a number of provocative social media posts on the club’s account since the completion of the 2017 SSE Dublin Airtricity Marathon.

In one such case Raheny Shamrock Athletic Club sought advice from Athletics Ireland and An Garda Siochana as to what action to take.

The club will make no further comment on this issue.
