first_imgAthletics News:Seven Letterkenny 24/7 Triathlon club members competed in the Liam Ball pool based triathlon in Templemore, Derry on a cold, wet and windy Bank Holiday Sunday.This venue was the first place a triathlon was ever staged in Ireland and in 1985 it was named after the Derry city Olympic swimmer, Liam Ball. This year was its 30th anniversary and it was a sold out event. Best on the day for 24/7 was Adam Speer who was 5th overall and used the race as a precursor for his upcoming race in Barcelona.In Letterkenny the annual North West 10K road race was held. This course, many would argue, is one of the most challenging in the county and some would say in the country! While the weather didn’t help matters for the Triathlon earlier in the day, the sun came out and the wind dropped just before the starter gun went for the 10K. Gavin Crawford had a steady run and finished strong in a time of 35.8 to finish 9th overall. Aidan Callaghan also had an impressive run and crossed the line in 36.56.2. First club woman home was club junior Kirsty McElwine in a time of 44.04 who had been second earlier in the week at the Educate Together 5K. Congratulations to all the competitors!
