GREAT TURNOUT AT COUNTY BOARD 5K IN GLASLOUGH

24 January 2014 One Comment by The Northern Standard

Conditions were dry but cold on Sunday last as a large number of athletes from clubs around the county and further afield gathered in Glaslough for the second running of the 5k promoted by the County Athletic Board.

In the juvenile races that preceded the 5k their were impressive victories for Keelan Wykes, Owen Mc Farland, Eva Ross, Tiernan O Rourke, Aisling Mc Anespie, Lorcan O Rourke, Niamh Malone and Conor Mc Nally. In the Development Shield awarded to the top juvenile club on the day Monaghan Phoenix came out on top.

As the juvenile programme was coming to a conclusion, the senior athletes started to gather for the 5k. There was good competition between athletes right through the field. As the leaders approached the village Clones athlete Paul Gleeson was well clear and went on to win convincingly ahead of Dessie Duffy from the Bailieboro club with Rathfarnham’s John Brooks taking third. Junior athlete Amy Hamill was the first lady home followed by Armagh’s Rosie Lambe and Teresa Rice of Kingscourt third home.

In the team races Clones took the Men’s honours, while Glaslough Harriers took the honours in the Ladies section.

In conclusion the Co Board would like to thank Glalsough Harriers for..
