Glaslough Road Races 2017

Despite a weather forecast that promised rain and wind for Sunday there was no rain and no wind as hundreds descended on Glaslough for the Annual Road Races organised by Glaslough Harriers. Indeed conditions were ideal for the event and there were some excellent performances. The Juvenile events began on time at 12 noon and these created high tension as parents urged their offspring to greater effort. Some parents could not stop themselves getting involved and joining the child on the running track to push them forward. The first event was for Special Needs and Padraig Kelly held on to his winning record by flying over the line at a huge pace. The Glaslough mentors were watching carefully as their members participated and new talent spotted. After the juveniles it was the turn of the adults and Danny Mooney from Letterkenny put in a blistering time to finish ahead of the rest while Brian McCluskey from North East Runners finished second and Shane Brady, Clones in 3rd place. In the Ladies section Carrick Aces took first and second with Anne Lynden over the line is an excellent time with Rose Lamb hot or her heels. After refreshments in the Oakland Centre the adult prizes were presented. The Juveniles received their medals at the finish line. The Peter Pritchard Cup went to Aoibhinn McCormack and presented by Theresa Pritchard Kavanagh.The Phelim McQuaid Cup was presented to Matthew Finn by Yvonne McQuaid. The Deirdre Duffy Trophy went to Rachel Callery.
