Carmen Runners host 9th annual Carmen 10k road race:
Over 200 athletes braved cold and windy conditions as they took on the well-organised Carmen Runners 10k road race in Carrickmore (Saturday 3rd March 2018).
The adverse weather conditions led to a revision of the course, but did not stop some fast times being recorded. Foyle Valley AC’s Keith Shiels and Letterkenny AC’s Ann-Marie McGlynn continued their return to full fitness with impressive wins.
Keith led the field home in 32:40 (1st place), with Acorns AC man Eoin Hughes following in 33:39 for 2nd place.
Ann-Marie then claimed 3rd place overall and 1st place in the ladies race in 34:39. Paul Barbour (Unattached) completed the men’s podium in 35:11 (3rd place).
Young Mid Ulster AC star Grace Carson secured the runners up prize in the ladies race, crossing the line in 39:10 (2nd place), while Leanne Sands of Acorns AC took 3rd place in 42:37.
