Tullamore 5k 2023 (12th Mar)
The Tullamore 5k on Sunday morning 12th March started outside the Tullamore Harriers Stadium and the course was on closed roads before ending on the track in the Stadium. Being part of the Peugeot Race Series and the Offaly 5k Race Series, it attracted big interest and over 360 toed the line for the event. Leading the Mullingar group home in an excellent 16 minutes 22 seconds was Ross Killalea in 11th place overall, the 3rd junior man. Running strongly behind and finishing fast was Kris Foster (16:39), Mary Stuart (20:56), Emer O’Hanlon (21:38), Brigid McCabe (22:59), Nuala Moran (24:28) and Nicky McCabe (25:30).
Nicky was second in his master category and with Mary and Brigid winning their master categories and Emer O’Hanlon finishing third in hers, it was little surprise that the Mullingar master women team leads the Offaly Race Series after race one and are eagerly looking forward to the next race in the series.
