Celbridge AC 5k 2021 (26th Aug)
Summer Scorcher in Celbridge
The Celbridge AC 5k took place on a very warm and sunny evening on Thursday 26th August. Starting at the Celbridge AC grounds, the race took place on a fast course on the roads around Celbridge. In line with current public health guidelines, numbers were strictly limited and the 331 runners were let off in two waves, based on predicted finish times, with the faster runners in the first wave. Given their quality, it was no surprise that the four Mullingar athletes were assigned to the first wave and after an excellent race, the Mullingar quartet was led home by Stephen Campbell in twentieth place in a time of 16:25, a few places ahead of Alan Crowley (16:41), followed by Ken Whitelaw (18:33) and Sinead Whitelaw (18:33).
