In the last weekend before Christmas only 2 Newry AC athletes were out racing.

Jonny Gregg and Meadow McCauley joined hundreds of fellow runners to run the annual festive themed Born2Run Race in Kilbroney Forest Park.

The race postponed the previous week due to Storm Deidre was rewarded this week with perfect mild weather conditions in this beautiful trail setting.

The race started in Rostrevor Square and the route took the runners down into the forest park and through its undulating trails.

Meadow McCauley raced in the 5k and knowing the trails and hills in the park paced her race well. Her tactics paid off and Meadow finished 5th overall in a time of 22:45 and lifted a podium place for 2nd Female.

Jonny Gregg took part in a very fast paced 10k and consistently held his position within the top ten. Jonny’s cool head and good pacing on the hills afforded him a fantastic 5th overall placing in a time of 38:59.
