Killyclogher 10K – Saturday 8th June 2019

The ninth annual O’Neills Killyclogher 10K and 5K takes place on Saturday 8th June 2019 at 11:00am from the club’s Ballinamullan GAA grounds. Both courses present a great opportunity for setting Personal Best times for participants due to its flat and fast nature in a picturesque country setting on the edge of Omagh town.

The event is chip-timed and over the years has attracted some of the best running talent across the region. Last year’s 10K was won by Keith Shiels, Foyle Valley AC, in a time of 32:21 and the first female home was Grace Carson from Mid Ulster AC. Previous winners have included Omagh Harrier’s Stevie Duncan and Paul Barbour and Anne Marie McGlynn, Lifford AC.

This community driven event is for all ages and abilities. In conjunction with the Enda Dolan Foundation, a Couch to 5K started on Tuesday 30th April 2019 at Youth Sport Omagh with over 260 runners registering for the event.

The first 400 registered for the 10K and 5K events will receive a T-Shirt. Participants can pre-register on the Athletics NI website or on the morning of the event. Post race refreshments for all runners and walkers will be provided in the adjoining Dún Uladh centre afterwards.

The nominated charities for this year’s event are The Gina Carrigan Forget Me Not Fund and The Enda Dolan Foundation. For further details see the Killyclogher 10K or Killyclogher GAA Facebook pages.
