THIS Sunday the action centres around the North West 10k in the town. Many club athletes have been training hard for the event which is expected to attract a bumper crowd of over 3,000 participants.
Congratulations to Vice-Chairman Brendan ‘Herbie’ McDaid who was elected onto the AAI Board as Ulster Provincial representative ending his four year term as chairman of competitions.
