First of Willies 5 x 5K Series a Great Success

Aine Fegan and Damien Maguire at Willies 5K series

The first of Willies Series of 5K took place on Thursday evening. On what was a glorious sunny evening there was a great turnout of non-affiliated runners and from clubs including NCR, Dromore and Newry AC, with 26 runners in total. Starting and finishing at WIN, the route was along the towpath. All monies raised were in aid of Southern Area Hospice.

Don Travers (NCR) was first home, followed by Eamon White and Mark Malone (Newry AC)

Aine Fegan (NCR) was first female, with Laura Devine (NCR) second and E Kearns third.

The next in the series will be on Thursday 19th May at 19:30 at WIN Industrial Estate, Newry Co Down ,we would love to see you there. Remember, it is open to all runners and not just NCR members and it will be a handicapped race.

There will be an entry fee of £3 for each event and in the final race of the series there will be prizes awarded to the first three females and first three males of the series. There will also be two special awards.
