All Saints GAC were delighted to host the annual “Crebilly 5K” on Friday evening – this was the return of a very successful initiative which commenced 5 years ago. The course is best described as a undulating course loop on the surrounding roads.
Participants included members from the host club All Saints and a strong representation from Ballymena Runners Athletic Club who has partnered and supported All Saints in this event since its inception in 2017.
In addition representatives from other local clubs including the strong North Belfast Harriers, Lagan Valley, Ballymena & Antrim Athletic Club, Jog Lisburn, Springwell, Orangegrove, Slemish Striders, and Roadrunners AC (Belfast) to name but a few.
In the senior men’s race, a great and very swift race between Philip Goss (N. Belfast Harrier) and Ricky Johnston (Lisburn) saw the Harrier athlete take the win by the slimmest of margins with chip finish times of 15.44 and 15.45 respectively
In the senior ladies local girl Zara Surgeoner (Ballymena Runners) broke the tape in a swift 20.26 and closely followed by Catriona Quigley in 21.06
In the junior male race (Under 18), honors went to Ciaran Goss (NBH) brother of the men’s senior winner in 17.27 followed by All Saints Harry Connon in 20.33
In the junior female, honors were taken by two of the All Saints members Keeley O’Mullan (28.10) and Ciara Connon (34.49)
The charity benefactor of this year’s event was St Vincent De Paul with all entry fees donated and presented post-race by club chairman Jim Brady to Mary Waide – local SVP President.
The club would like to acknowledge and thank all the members, supporters, sponsors and marshals who helped to make this event successful.
