Thursday 7th June - Hill & Dales, Loughshannangh Horseshoe

The Newry AC athletes had a fabulous run on the most challenging course of the series in very warm temperatures.   5 of them finished in top 30 placings with Esther Dickson lifting the Female Course Record and securing her 2018 Series Title with dominant performances throughout.

The course takes you over Carn and down its steep side with its heather and rabbit hole hazards, skirting the stony shoreline of Loughshannah to a climb up to the summit of Doan, down over the Mars like bog before ascending Loughshannagh into the final boggy run over Ott back to the finish line.

Keiron Kelly was the first Newry AC runner over the line in an impressive 7th position in a time of 43:08 and lifting 1st MV45; Esther Dickson followed strongly taking 1st Female, 20th overall with a time of 48:20; Paul Le Blanc finished 27th with time of 49:22 and 2nd MV55; Cathal McGreevy finished 29th, 3rd MV50 and time of 49:27; Warren Cartmill finished 30th with a time of 49:29 and 4th MV45; Rory Mulvaney came in 52nd in a time of 52:47.  Rory was given the club face painting prize due to having more mud on his face than the entire bog they had just trawled through!  Coach Kookie followed through in 78:56 taking 6th MV60.

Saturday 9th June - Mourne Way Half Marathon

Rory Mulvaney after his muddy roll around Loughshannagh on Thursday evening took to the beautiful Mournes again for the annual Mourne Way Half Marathon.  Not only did Rory compete but made it a family event with wife, Seana, running also.  The weather was searingly hot and uncomfortable at times but Rory had a great run finishing 7th overall in the race with an impressive time of 1:34:40 (out of a field of 578 runners).  Wife, Seana, impressed and came in 80th overall with a great time of 2:04:42 and 16th overall Female.  The race starts at the Ott Car Park and follows the road down past Spelga Dam where they join the trails to skirt Hen Mountain, Rocky and passing Leitrim Lodge for the long run down through Kilbroney to finish in the main open park to a welcoming beer and burger!

Saturday 9th June - Wicklow Way, Irish Ultra Championship

Total respect to endurance runner, Noel Carr, who took the challenge of the Wicklow Way to complete a gruelling 80 mile Ultra run.  This race is rated ‘Extreme’ with climbs totally 3,000 metres and is over the Wicklow Way from Clonegal, Co. Carlow through the Wicklow Hills to finish in Marlay Park, Dublin.  There is a maximum time of 21 hours allowed. So, in very hot day and mockey night temperatures and with the motivational support crew of fellow Newry AC men Ronan Mynes & Mark Malone, Noel Carr finished well under the 21 hour ruling in 18hrs 46 mins in a top 35 placing.  Not a run for the faint hearted.  Well done Noel,

Saturday 9th June - Crooked Lake Triathlon

Sarah Jane Beattie completed her 1st Triathlon in a time of 1hr 27 mins.  Sarah Jane finished strongly and delighted with her performance and is ready for the next challenge.  Well done Sarah Jane.
