“…Gallagher, 31, also was acquainted with winning the overall men’s championship on Presque Isle State Park’s 26.2-mile course. He did that for the second time Sunday when he crossed the finish line in 2 hours, 35 minutes, 10 seconds.”
Erie Times - Sep. 16th 2013
It’s been 9 years since I last won this race. Now I’ve won it again on September 15, 2013. Erie Marathon was the very first marathon I had ever done. Just after graduating college back in 2004, one of my best friends at the time (Scott Fabry) told me that now that I’ve graduated and no longer a college athlete (cross country and track) that I should start doing marathons. Being a veteran marathon runner Scott took me under his wing, helped me train for and ran beside me for the first half of my very first marathon back in 2004.
Gallagher will be running the Clearwater Marathon coming up on January 20th where he hope to break the course record of 2:36. In the past year Sean Gallagher has run a best time of 2:34 so if he can repeat that run on the 20th he is likely to break the course record. The Clearwater Marathon will be held in Coachman Park, Clearwater at 7:05am.

“Top 2011 finishers Terry, Gallagher head full field… The Mohawk Hudson River Marathon celebrates its 30th birthday on Sunday, and apparently everybody wanted to come to the party… Gallagher, who finished third in 2011, is also expected back, along with six others who have run sub-2 :40 recently.”
