Last Saturday a number of club athletes took part in the Newmills 10k where the advantage of the fairly flat course was negated by a very strong headwind during the first half of the race.
Ciaran McGonagle continued his strong running this year and finished a great 2nd place in a time of 34:55 behind Ivan Toner from Letterkenny pushing him all the way to the line.
Noel Diver and Kevin McGee pushed each other well over the course to finish 6th and 7th respectively with Michael Logue 12th.
Aisling Diver ran a great race to finish 3rd lady in the senior women’s race.
Good luck to Patrick Marry who is travelling to Jordanstown this weekend to compete in the Ulster Juveniles Even Ages.
