Acorns AC Bulebells 5k 2017:

On Saturday 22nd July 2017, two hundred female athletes enjoyed the Acorns AC Bluebells 5k road race, which took place in perfect weather conditions.

The race got underway on the Kilfaddy Road on the outskirts of Magherafelt and finished at the Meadowbank Sports Arena with a final 300 metre sprint around the track.

Recently crowned NI & Ulster 10,000m Champion Marina Murphy (Derry Track Club) had former junior champion Sarahjane Guiney (Unattached) on her tail until the latter stages when Marina moved clear to win in 18:14 (1st place).

In-form Sarahjane took a well deserved 2nd place in 18:33, before Cathy McCourt (Unattached) made a welcome return to the podium on her return from injury.  Cathy completed the top three in 18:46 (3rd place).
