TWO RACES IN A DAY FOR KEVIN …..
 
Well done to SGR Kevin Mc Sherry who took on the massive task of two events in a day last Saturday .starting in the morning with  Eva’s Adventure Run  in which he ran the  Half Marathon event in Tassagh  ,then it was on to Dromiskin village in County Louth for the Dromiskin 5k later that evening.

Sharin also came away with a great time in the 5k run with  00:51:48 and well done to Sharin’s mum who took on the walk in the event on Saturday.
