Yesterday saw a great turnout of Armagh AC juniors in Bush, Co. Louth for the annual Glenmore AC 5k and juvenile cross country races. This was the first cross country race of the season for most and is a good benchmark coming into the Ulsters at Kilbroney and Stranorlar in the coming weeks. Races were u9, u11, u13, u15 and U17. The club had good representation in all age groups, with some kids running in their first competitive race. There were Quinns, Foxs, McNallys, Haynes, Hamiltons, McKeowns, Clarkes, Dalys and Dorans
The club had 2 winners on the day with Odhran (U15) and Ella (U15) both winning their races in similar fashion, toying with the opposition until the final 400m before leaving them in their wakes with very strong sprint finishes.
Well done also to Conor Murphy for finishing well up the rankings in the senior race. A big shout out goes to Julieann McKeown, the club’s only senior female runner on the day, who completed the senior 5k to raucous applause on her way through the finish line – top marks to her fan club !!!
Apologies to anyone who we haven’t got a photograph for, and apologies again for not knowing all of your names – we will add them all in time. Well done everyone!
