DONEGALDAILY TV VIDEO: LOCAL LEGEND’S RECORD STILL STANDS AFTER 20TH BALLYARE 10K

first_imgTHERE was a massive turn-out tonight for the 20th running of the Ballyare 10k. More than 350 people took part in either the 10k race – or the 5k fun walk.Run from Carr’s of the Diamond and taking in one of the toughest 10k routes in Co Donegal, hundreds of local people turned out to cheer on the runners and the walkers.Local legend Patrick Hegarty, a multiple Irish champion, is race director these days (and of course still a runner.)His astonishing record for the course at just over 30 minutes still stands after tonight’s event, which was won by Derry man Declan Reid who led from the front but couldn’t break Patrick’s record. Congratulations to all those who took part and a special mention to Carr’s of the Diamond where once again tea, coffee, sandwiches and enough cakes and buns to feed an army were laid on for participant and spectator alike.We will have a video of the walkers – and all the results a bit later on. DONEGALDAILY TV VIDEO: LOCAL LEGEND’S RECORD STILL STANDS AFTER 20TH BALLYARE 10K was last modified: August 24th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGALDAILY TV VIDEO: LOCAL LEGEND’S RECORD STILL STANDS AFTER 20TH BALLYARE 10Klast_img read more
