Glaslough Road Races 2010

The annual John Reilly/John Curley memorial Road races organised by Glaslough Harriers was held on Sunday, Mar 14th. There was a full programme of events starting with Juvenile races from U8s to U16s. These began at 12.15 and there were competitors from a huge number of Athletic clubs. The weather was ideal for racers and spectators and there were plenty of these as well, as this event has become a big attraction in the county. Praise must go to the organisers for the excellent manner in which they had everything in place for the smooth running of the event -and this was commented on in a very complimentary manner by visitors from other clubs.

The Jolly Joggers, which is a local Ladies Training Club, completed the 5K course in record time and all arrived back at the finish line in a group and were rewarded with a Box of Black Magic each. Well done to Geraldine McAree and team for a great run. Also well done to Caoimhin Kelly who finished 3rd after finishing 15th in a Big Race in Cork on the day before Glaslough.
