Mayo AC athletes won most of the main prizes in the 4th Annual Turlough 8k over the testing one lap course – with a hilly middle section, and a welcome downhill finish. It was organised by Parke Keelogues Crimlin GAA and held in conjunction with Mayo Mental Health Association and the National Museum of Ireland.
John Byrne was the clear winner in 26:43, five seconds inside his 2015 course record. Colette Tuohy was first woman home (by four minutes) in 31:25, having won last year in 31:43.
Conditions were chilly but dry and sunny for the 160 finishers, among them a good turnout from Mayo AC.
