RUN FOR AUTISM 10 MILE RACE

Congratulations to Sean Quinn and the crew that organised these two events today as everything was covered from perfect marshalling, water stops and food supplied after the event. Bus transfer back to the start line was also covered. All the money raised went to a worthy cause and support along the route from Newtownhamilton to Lissummon was excellent. Well done to our own Chris Devine on an exceptional win today in 58:50 and also to the rest of our runners in the halfmarathon and 10 mile race. Chris is definitely putting in the hard work into training and deserves his podium places.
