Hill & Dales Series - Race 1 - Castlewellan

In a field of 283 competitors, 7 of Newry ACs finest athletes took on the Castlewellan Forest Park Race on Thursday evening. Weather conditions were perfect for the first race of the series. The Newry athletes all stuck pretty close to each other with the final result of Esther Dickson 38:47 26th (2nd Female/1st FO); Warren Cartmill 39:00 29th (2nd MV45); Paul LeBlanc 39:37 35th (2nd MV55); Rory Mulvaney 40:17 40th (14th MO); Ronan Mynes 44:07 93rd (10th MV45) & Kookie O’Hagan 63:15 4th MV60.

British Fell Running Championships- Mourne Highline Mountain Race

On Saturday, one brave Newry AC goat, Cathal McGreevy - took on the top class field of UK & Ireland runners in the heart of the Mournes. On a day that seemed fair, down at sea level told a different story in the Majestic Mournes. “Visibility was mush - from the start line right through”. Navigation skill would be needed on top of the physical and mental strength for the 15.3km 1300m Race.

The race started at Spelga and covered the main summits of Meelbeg, Meelmore, Slievenaglogh, Slieve Corragh & Comedagh. Comedagh. The race proved a real challenge to navigate in the ‘white out’ with runners having many unplanned detours but Cathal with a cool head stuck to the correct route and completed the course in 2:12:19, 131st out of a field of 284 runners. Well done Cathal.

Portadown 5k

On Sunday, Meadow McCauley left her familiar track surroundings and took to the roads of Portadown for a windy 5k race. The 15 year old ran a good strong race in some windy conditions and proudly lifted the 2nd Female Prize.

Athletics NI Senior Open Meet

On Sunday, Joanne McCauley travelled to the Mary Peters Track in Belfast. The wet and windy conditions did not deter Joanne and she lifted 3rd in the Long Jump, 3rd in 200 metres and 1st in High Jump. A perfect start to the outdoor season.

Dundalk 5K

Hughie Mackin is awaiting a decision from the appeals panel after he was left "choking and disorientated" on Saturday the 14th of April, when competing in a high profile 5K race in Dundalk. He immediately lodged a complaint with the race organisers after crossing the line in a time of 18:25!

"No sense in that," he stated. "I am used to coping with cement dust at my factory, but this was on a different scale!"

John McCaffrey, who blasted past Hughie in the final stages of the race, pleaded innocence. "I cannot be held responsible for the state of the road," he responded. "Thanks to Hughie for pacing me round."

John ran a time of 18:20 with Sarah Jane Beattie wrapping things up for Newry AC with 21:37.
