Members and friends at the finish


There was a good turnout at the annual Christmas 10 this morning, although the actual number of competitors was down on recent years as several regulars chose to only participate in the “craic”, and not the actual race 🙂

William Gill rolled out the low profile to record a solid 26:12 on a cold and frosty morning. Best fancy dress was Graham McConaghy, son of former club chairman “Mike the Bike”, who was home from England for Christmas. And fastest lady was Gillian Orr.

Thanks to all the time keepers, pushers off, turn stewards, refreshment suppliers and riders for supporting this event. It’s a great way to build up an appetite for a seasonal lunch!
