Seamus Lynch secures IMRA title with win at Lugnacoille Mountain Race!

Irish Mountain Running Association (IMRA) Lugnacoille Mountain Race 2018:

Northern Ireland’s Seamus Lynch (Newcastle AC) sealed the Irish Mountain Running Championship with a win at the Lugnacoille Mountain Race this weekend (Saturday 28th July 2018).

Seamus has already won the Hill & Dale Series this season – on top of the IMRA title, if he is confirmed as Northern Ireland Mountain Running Association (NIMRA) Champion, the Northern Ireland and Ireland international will complete an excellent treble.

The Lugnacoille race measured 10.5k in distance with 718m of ascent.  Seamus led the field home in 52:42 (1st place).

Newcastle AC club mate Colm Murtagh claimed 2nd place in 54:29 and this should also seal a place on the overall Championship podium.
