This week mountains and trails took precedence in the race events with the track athletes resting before a hectic summer race timetable commences.

Hill & Dales - Millstone Race, Donard Forest Park

On Thursday evening, 7 Newry AC athletes took on the Millstone Race. The weather was damp, mild and mocky with ground conditions on the open mountain technical and slippery underfoot. The race started in Donard Park and took the runners through the forest trails, were they met up on the Granite Trail, they then followed the wall ascending up the rocky climb of Millstone, to then make a fast but technical descent back down into the forest to the finish line at the base of Donard Park.

Lee Maginnis won an extremely guttery and hilly Lissan House 5K on Thursday evening.

The setting was beautiful but the weather conditions made it quite a brutal course with the first half flat with tarmac and then the runners were subjected the mud and hills of the surrounding trails.

Cairncastle Classic Fell Race, Ballygally

On Saturday, Newry AC athletes took on the inaugural Cairncastle Classic Fell Race which was a NIMRA Championship Race. This was a medium category race of 10 miles with approximately 2,200 feet of elevation. It was a challenging route taking the runners around the famous Sallagh Braes and North Coast Skyline. The race started on the scenic Ballygally Beach up the gradient of the Cairncastle Road passing the iconic ‘Matties Meeting House, shortly after the runners then continued uphill on tracks leading onto the fells and Knockdu. On reaching the summit the runners ran along the edge of the Sallagh Braes (having no time to take in the fantastic views of Larne Lough) and making a tricky descent to the valley floor along trail path and onto the Antrim Hills Way. There then was a long gradual climb to the final summit of Scawt Hill and a great downhill followed to the shoreline onto the coast road and back via Ballygally Castle to the finish line on the Ballygally Beach.

Paul Le Blanc finished the race in 1:35:57.

Club mate Sarah Quinn took 3rd female with a time of 1:39:54 (note that both Esther and Sarah raced the Millstone Race on Thursday evening, so fantastic results).
