NI man Conan McCaughey impresses in Spain:

Derry Track Club’s Conan McCaughey impressed this weekend with a podium finish at the Carrera de San Fulgencia 10k in Spain (Sunday 15th October 2017).

The Fermanagh man secured 2nd place in an excellent 32:27; this was over a hilly two lap course and in scorching temperatures.

Conan spoke of his delight on social media:  “Delighted with 2nd place in the Carrera de San Fulgencio 10k today! It’s been a while since I’ve been happy after a race but 32:27 over a hilly 2 loop course on a scorching Sunday morning, I’ll take that!  The hospitality of the locals was incredible.”

He will now look towards the Spooktacular 5k road race in Enniskillen at the end of this month (October 2017).

It’s been a busy weekend for local athletes, with familiar faces taking on the Amsterdam Marathon, the Palma Half Marathon and 10k and the Limone Extreme Skyrace.
