Cragg ready to make his mark in Boston after New York run

Mo Farah, Great Britain’s double European champion on the track, may have won New York City Half Marathon last Sunday but the run of Alistair Cragg, who finished sixth in an Irish record 1:00:49, also got plenty of plaudits.

Cragg finished 26 seconds behind the 2010 European Athletics Championships 5000m and 10000m gold medallist but his run in the Big Apple augers well for his marathon debut in Boston on 18 April.
