January 15, 2024

The Annual ACE AC Coca Cola 5K took place in Termonfeckin on Sunday last.

The Race started at the Termonfeckin GAA grounds, going down the hill and left at the River Boyne up towards Queensborough and back again, finishing in the same position at the GAA grounds.

In ideal running conditions the overall winner was Danny Nugent from the host Club Ace Ac. Danny led from the gun finishing in a very impressive 15.23 . In second place was Dublin City Harriers runner Oran O'Hare who wasn't too far behind Danny in 15.48. Third place went to Niall Carbery from Clonliffe Harriers.

The ladies race was equally competitive with the top 3 athletes all being juniors. The ladies winner was St Peters Athlete Dearbhla Allen in 19.04 with Ace Ac athlete Eimear Cooney, just back from an Athletics Ireland training camp in Portugal, second in 19.22. Eimear was followed closely behind, by her clubmate Sholah Lawernce in 3rd.

There were various other categories and lots of prizes on the day with all competitors going home with a fabulous goodie bag.

It was a very successful event with so much support from local businesses, local residents and the many elite level athletes and fun runners from Louth and beyond. Ace AC would like to thank everybody for supporting the event.

Thanks to the sponsors, Coca Cola, Credit Union, Water Wipes, Bakehouse, Flogas, Fyffes, Keoghs Crisps, Greenmount House, Tirlan and Eurospar.
