  • Comber 10k Road Race - Friday 16th June 2017

    There was a fine turn out from the club ladies and men at our local Comber 10K road race. Conditions were just about perfect, if a little warm, and there were some pleasing runs and pb’s on the night. Newcastle’s David O’Flaherty won the battle at the head of the race. Willowfield’s Paul Rowan had a great tussle in the chasing pack and took a deserved 4th place. Amy Bulman was a comfortable winner of the ladies race.

  • NI & Ulster Age Group Track and Field Championships – Sat 17th June 2017

    Superb weather added to what was a good day at the races for a number of our young athletes. Things got off to a great start when Andrew Hagen won the gold medal for the U17 2000m Steeplechase with a confident performance.

    Next on the track Dylan McBride, more a young man for the middle distances, had a go at the 200m and finished a surprising 5th place in the final. In the U17 3000m Jamie Anthony and Matthew Caves carried the colours. Both put in great runs , and I believe notched pb’s, with Jamie finishing 8th and Matthew 5th.

    To finish the day we had a series of age group 800m races and first to race was Mabelle Wilcox. Highlight of the race was her superb second lap as she ate up the track moving up six places. Over the two heats Mabelles time was enough to give her a pleasing 7th place over all.

    For his second run of the day Dylan added to his superb season in his more favoured middle distance event. In an exciting race he was pipped for the gold in the home straight by a visiting Scottish athlete. Hannah Gilliland, like Mabelle earlier, had a great second lap in her race but despite a great run just faded a little in the finishing straight to finish 7th.

    Willowfield had three athletes in the last of the 800m featuring the U17 boys. Nathan McBride matched his younger brother with a super run to take the silver medal. Oliver Corrigan was in the leading pack for 600m but tired over the last quarter. He was passed by Andrew Hagen who gained several places along the home straight to finish.
