NCR Festival Of Running


This has been an incredibly difficult year for many people, and it Is at times like this that you value your family and friends more than ever. When we decided to embark on a ‘three-race festival of running’, none of us were sure now it would work out. Well the response from our members was simply phenomenal with over 70 runners coming together over a three-month period to take part in our 5k, 10k and half marathon races.

The sun shone brightly for all the races. Members arrived in their droves and delivered some superb performances, there was PB after PB. We always said our aim was to bring the club together and it was wonderful to see all the smiling faces before, during and after the races. Just look at the photos.

To recognise the commitment of those that took part, organised and supported the runners we are delighted to be able to give them a high-quality sweat top. Huge thanks to Eamonn Connolly, Newry Business Improvement District for sponsoring the sweat top. This is is in addition to the club free NCR Tee Shirt we have for all our members.

We face difficult times for another few months and with that in mind we intend holding a race each month. To give you time to get some practice in, we are going to hold a 5k race on Sunday 1st November at 10:30.

The committee would like to thank all our members for their support over the last year. We know that through injury, family commitments etc some members were unable to take part in these races however we look forward to seeing everyone at the next race kitted out in their new club tee shirt.
