A terrible day weather wise but that did not deter the six hundred from turning out
and enjoying the annual New Year's Day Fun Run organised by the Jolly Joggers. This
is the 9th year of the Run and so far it has raised almost €45,000 for the Monaghan
Cancer Treatment Support group. It was great to see the Fun Run getting the support
of so many athletic clubs from the county but also fro so many other counties, as
from Donegal, Dublin, Belfast, Cavan, Fermanagh, Armagh, Tyrone and many more besides.
There was a 10k and a 6k with the majority taking on the 10k but the big crowd enjoyed
which ever they completed. It was back to the Leisure Centre where plenty of good
tasty food was available and the 10k prizes awarded. The 6k prizes were presented
at the Finish Line earlier. Winners: 10k men - Conor Duffy, Caoimhin Kelly and Eskander
Turki. 6k men - Michael Kerr, Oisin Hughes, Donncha Hughes. 10k Ladies - Erin McHugh,
Donna Evans and Amy Hamill. 6k ladies - Emma Geary, Orla McKenna and Rebecca McKenna.
A full list of thank you will follow. Full Results of 10k HERE
