Congratulations to our 8 under 13 and under 15 athletes who competed in Birmingham at the UK Sportshall Athletics Finals representing Donegal and Ulster. Their coach and Donegal team manager Louise Gillespie was hugely impressed with the strong competition and some great performances. This is a great experience for our athletes. Well done to Tara Harley – Braade, Jessica Oglesby – Keadue, Saskia Boyle – Keadue, Caoimhe Boyle – Mullaghduff, Ultan Boyle, Nicole Boyle – Ballymanus, Sarah Doherty – Calhame and Fola Mc Fadden – Gaoth Dobhair.
There was a great turnout to the last race in our 5k Spring Series. John McCallion ran out race winner on the day closely followed by the ever improving Eamonn O’Donnell and Johnny Wilson. Noreen McGee lead the ladies home from Deirdre Diver and Hazel Scorer. There were many category winners and well done and huge thanks to all who ran, walked and supported in any way. Special thanks to the Donegal Airport for the use of the excellent facilities. There are pictures on facebook so check them out.
The Thursday evening session at the Industrial Estate in Gweedore will continue for another few weeks up to the North West 10k where we will look to get a strong showing from all senior athletes in the club that day. It is a great family event to jog, run or walk. New vests are now in stock so please contact Ita Gallagher on 087 1309536 for details.
