Slieve Gullion - Mountain Race Season Opener

Newry AC took the first NIMRA race of the season by storm. After weeks of tough training and course recces, their dedication was rewarded.

The venue was the North side of Slieve Gullion and as with every year the wind and rain were on cue combined with the usual mud and bog conditions.

The club fielded 8 athletes who all had superb performances with 5 of them lifting first in their categories.

Rory Mulvaney was first in for Newry AC with an impressive 5th after a strong and determined run over this technical course.
