Jimmy’s Ten round up – Relay win for Madison

Mon 19 March 2012--admin

East Down AC’s “Jimmy’s Ten” in Downpatrick is traditionally the first big 10k in the local calendar, with big numbers suppporting the event again this year – some 500 in total between the 10k main event and the 2x5k relay.

Declan Morgan is a local man although any advantage gained by having knowledge of the course was off-set by a heavy cold. He still managed to place 51st in a time of 40:20 – only 30 seconds off his PB.

Diane Watson had a very good run in the F35 age-group, her 43:29 leaving her 7th lady overall and 4th F35.

Young Madison Bowyer took the chance for a road race over a similar distance to that she’ll run in London next month, and in the process won the “All-Female” relay class with sister Carla! The girls covered the 10k in 41:08. Congratulations to all the Lisburn athletes on their runs.
