Offaly Athletics Report (June 20)

Ballinagar 10k Road Race

Well done to all who competed in the Offaly 10k Road race championships at the weekend in Ballinagar. 174 athletes took part. The race started in the outside the GAA grounds and took in a loop from there across to the Meelahans and back onto the Tullamore Road via Annaharvey. While it is a relatively level course, the last 3k provided a testing drag to the finish line. The race was won by Mick Fogarty (Ferbane AC), 2nd Paul Mitchell (Tullamore Harriers) and 3rd Paul Buckley (Ferbane AC). The lady winner was Edenderry AC Aisling O’Connor with her teammate Caroline Donnellan 2nd and Tullamore’s Nadine Donegan 3rd.
