Deerpark 5k & Fit4Life Race two

Deerpark 5k
Well done to Dermot McDermott who won the Deerpark 5k, hosted by Calry Athletic Club, on Thursday 24th September in a time of 17.28, in doing so setting a new course record. The hilly two lap course was not one where Athletes would record a personal best over the distance however a sizable crowd of over 50 athletes undertook the challenge. Neil Higgins took second place in 18.18 whilst Ultan McNasser claimed third in 18.42 with Damian McSharry (4th) and Seamus Somers (5th) in hot pursuit.
