Roscommon, Achill, Headford results

It’s been a busy Saturday with a choice of events at three locations and over four distances. Roscommon ten mile  seemed to be the runner’s race of choice hosted for the 5th time by the local Harriers AC. And thankfully for runners less torrid temperatures although humidity was high in the morning.

Well done to members won prizes and all who competed  today.
