On Sunday in national tidy towns award winning Glaslough Village the Glaslough Harriers and Mc Aree family hosted the second Duathlon in honour of their son Kieran Mc Aree.

Eighty athletes took part with a start in the 2.5k run in the village ,a circuit of 21k in a loop past the Villa grounds and on to N2 and back via Armagh road to the village to take their second 2.5k run. All the participants expressed their satisfaction with the route and seem to be popular with athletes taking part in this type of event. The organizers of the event wish to thank Glaslough Villa for moving their match to the parish field to assist in the smooth running of the duathlon.

There was plenty of refreshments served with the assistance of the Mc Aree Family and friends and the rugby was available live in the Oakland centre courtesy of Gregory Murphy from Murphy videos.

The winners were presented with trophies and prise money by Martin and Geraldin Mc Aree. Thanks to Rory for taking photos of all the winners and Northern Standard for supporting this event.

The junior winners Ultan O’ Rourke and James Mc Kenna are not in photos as they had to go to another engagement, congratulations to both.
