On Bank Holiday Monday, 6th May 2013, the Rector of Clones, Canon Helene T. Steed ran the Belfast Marathon in aid of the Grouped Parishes of Clones, Killeevan, Newbliss and Currin. After 4 hours and 44 minutes she crossed the finishing line and said afterwards she was 'delighted with the time and that the atmosphere in Belfast was wonderful and most encouraging'.

She would like to express her sincere thanks to those who have sponsored her and supported the four parishes in the group. The members of the Rusk family, parishioners of Clones Church of Ireland, also entered the Marathon with a relay team. Their first runner, Mr Adam Rusk, also completed the full Marathon, again a great personal achievement.
