24/7 SIZZLE AT NW10K

North West 10k
A record 50 club members took part in Sunday’s super hot NW10k!  Conditions were tough in a blistering heat but 24/7 members performed superbly aided by the shouts and cheers of the wonderful 24/7 support. Aidan Callaghan was first 24/7 member to cross the line in a fantastic 35:49, setting him up well for next Sunday’s Strabane Lifford Half Marathon. Gavin Crawford was second member finishing in 36:18. Sean McFadden was third member home in a time of 37:26.

Fionnuala Larkin was the first 24/7 female to finish in a super time of 44:45. Bronagh O’Gara was second lady in 45:24. Ita McGettigan was third female finishing in 48:46, a brilliant performance coming back from an injury.
It would be impossible to highlight individual performances for 49 members but full results are attached below. Special mention to all those who achieved PBs on the day especially to junior Chloe Wasson on her first 10k run debut. Congratulations everyone!

Tuesday’s run session incorporated the Letterkenny Educate Together NS 5k. On a night of terrible rain Gavin Crawford was the winner by just 0.7 of a second.

Liam Tinney showing his great running form is returning with a super 19:42. A man usually just found on his bike, Shaun McDaid, 20:36, had a great run finishing just ahead of Brian Gormley in 20:40. Another very tight race Brian and Pat Brady (20:40:9) were neck and neck with just 0.3 seconds separating them. Emmet McClafferty had a super performance also finishing in 21:25. Catherine McKinley was first 24/7 woman to finish in 22:13. Martina McDaid, showing super form early in the season had a brilliant run in 22.53. Rachael Stilvern crossed the line in 23:45, a PB on a horrible night, well done Rachael.

Another junior showing great promise is Aoibheann O’Grady- crossing the line in a brilliant 24:40. Well done all-super running from all members with the grand prix series just beginning!
