Roscommon 10 Mile 2024 (29th June)


Roscommon Harriers AC staged the annual Roscommon 10 Mile on Saturday morning 29th June. The race took place on the outskirts of Roscommon Town on a fast, flat scenic route. Wet conditions didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of nearly 450 participants. With exceptional hospitality not only in terms of the post-event food but also local support encouraging runners along the route, the difficult conditions were overcome, with some exceptional times. In the mix were a number of Mullingar Harriers athletes. Susan Glennon was the first of our finishers, placing well up overall and 6th woman in 65:54. She was followed by Jacintha Reilly (68:47) returning to her hometown for the event. Next was Padraig Beglin (70:03) and just behind him came the fast-finishing Criona Reid (70:31), winning her master category. Paul Purdy (81:43) was fourth in his master category and happy to get back to competition after a recent lay off due to injury [MO’S].
