Derravaragh 5 Mile & 10 Mile 2024 (23rd June)


Ballinafid-Multyfarnham Community Services held their annual 5 Mile on Sunday morning 23rd June, and this year incorporated a new 10 Mile option. Warm and very humid weather conditions were faced by all the runners. The races started just outside the village of Multyfarnham, at the Derravaragh Holiday Park, with a stiff and hilly course to be tackled. In the 10 mile race, Steven Underwood came home 2nd of the 42 finishers in 1:03:34, with Eoin Clarke having ran the Dunshaughlin 10k the evening before, delighted to take 3rd in 1:08:38. They were followed in by Kieran Dodrill, also a Dunshaughlin participant, in 1:27:08 and Michael Purdue came home in 1:28:36.

In the 5 mile race, Andrew Nevin came home 1st of nearly 100 finishers in 27:47, none the worse of his exertions in Dunshaughlin the previous evening, as was Evan McCormack who secured 2nd place in 30:02, Mick Fagan was 4th (31:40), Emer Savage (42:53) and Declan Costello (44:36) in a good field of nearly 100 runners [MO’S].
