The 1st race in the Offaly Road Race series 2017 had over 340 finishers, 70 more than last year, however the 1st 3 ladies (all from Tullamore Harriers) where the same as last year, Pauline Curley (18:23), Nadine Donegan (19:01) & Sinead Rigney (19:26). Host club Ferbane had a strong showing in the men’s race with Mick Fogarty (16:21) 1st & Paul Buckley (16:28) 2nd. 3rd spot went to Tullamore Harrier Dave Murray (16:32). My stand out memory of the day was the sea of yellow formed by new club Banagher AC who had close to 70 finishers. While Banagher await the arrival of their new vests much of the gang wore ‘darkness into light’ t-shirts, supporting a great cause. Thank you to Adrian Martin for the photos.
