Newry City Runners are delighted to announce that our very own running legend and treasured running coach Willie McCracken has been nominated for a Life-Time Services to Sport 2019 award.
Willie is not only an outstanding runner but very much at the heart of our local running community, currently overseeing Rostrevor Parkrun.
Rain, hail or snow Willie will be seen at track on a Tuesday putting everyone through their paces and giving endless support, encouragement and invaluable advise.
For the last number of years Willie has also taken a winter training session on Sunday mornings, free for everyone, giving so many people the opportunity to get up, get out and become more active.
Willie you are an inspiration to all us in the club and we wish you every success with the award. You are our winner already!
