Co Antrim Harriers May Fair Races - Ballyclare

Jonny Carson, Carol Brownlee, Darren Irwin, Kate Semple and Don Brownlee

The annual May Fair 10K and 5K races made a welcome return this year with Don and Kate taking on the 5K route.

Both the 10K and 5K races started together at Ballyclare Rugby Club.

The sea of over 400 runners made their way up a rough stony lane before reaching the road which was lined with supporters.

After 1.5 miles the 5K headed right which was a welcoming downhill before entering Sixmile Park.

A lovely scenic run through the park was enjoyed before the uphill struggle back to the Rugby Club where the most fabulous post race refreshments and massage was on offer.

Many thanks to Co Antrim Harriers for a fantastic morning.

Newry City Half Marathon

It was near perfect running conditions this morning in Newry

Five Acorns took part in what is deemed to be the fastest and flattest half marathon in Ireland.

The route started along the historic Newry quay and headed towards Warrenpoint passing the scenic Narrow Water Castle.

The run is all on the carriageway by the canal.

Although the headwind on the way back slowed a few of the runners down but it was also a welcome cooling breeze as the temperatures started to soar.

Congratulations to Darren and Jonny who both achieved outstanding personal bests.

Well done to everyone on their fantastic runs.

Finally, congratulations to Philip Wallace on completing the Edinburgh marathon in 3.22.41.
