Furey Insurances 5k Finale next Wednesday on Balliniska Circuit

The fourth and final race in this year’s Furey Insurances 5K race series is set for Derry’s Baliniska circuit next Wednesday evening, 17th July.

The popular local series should finish in fine style with a big turn out and competitive action right down the field. Up front it looks like a straight shoot out for overall honours in both the male and female Open categories with defending champion Scott Rankin in a head to head with Declan Reed and in the women’s section it will be Gemma Turley facing Catherine Whoriskey for the top spot.

The Masters and U20 categories will also produce interesting tussles and down the field, we’ll also see many little private battles with runners looking for bragging rights and perhaps new course and distance pb’s in the series finale for 2013.

Race Headquarters, as always, will be the Templemore Sports Complex, Buncrana Road, where entries will be taken on the night from 6.00 p.m. in advance of the 7 30 p.m. start time.

It is also possible to enter online, simply send name, age on race day and club, if any to furey5kentry@gmail.com by Tuesday evening, July 16th next. The race pack can then be collected at the Templemore Sports Complex on race day from 6.00 p.m. and the entry fee of £7 or E9 handed over.

The Awards Presentations, Open and Age Groups on the night and the overall prizes, will follow back at the Sports Complex with the post race refreshments at approximately 8 30 pm.
