17 fantastic images as Derry Cross Country held in Thornhill College

There was a superb turn-out as the rescheduled Derry Cross Country – formerly the North West Cross Country – was staged in the grounds of Thornhill College on Saturday morning.

North Down’s Craig McMeechan proved the overall winner of the Open 6k event, which had been postponed in December, after leading from beginning but there were plenty of other fantastic performances and ‘Journal’ photographer George Sweeney was there to capture to action. Check out some of George’s superb pictures from an excellent day for north west athletics.
