Great running in Newmarket 5k

This very popular event took place last Sunday in dry but freezing conditions. Still these conditions didn’t deter our athletes from putting in very good performances. Ross McCarthy ran a great race when dipping under the18 minute barriers when finishing 90th in 17 mins 51 secs. A nice way to end the year having poster 18 mins 14 secs for the Newcastle 5k at the start of the year. Then we had Aidan Flannery also running a very good race when finishing 101st in 18 mins 3 secs. Eelco Beckers is anther athletes that ran very well when finishing 109th in 18 mins 18 secs and this is a massive improvement on his Clogheen 5k run of 18 mins 54 secs
