Comber 10k – Race Report


On Friday, 16th June, it was the return of the Ballydrain Harriers Comber 10K which is part of the Novosco 10K Grand Prix series. Nearly 700 runners descended the streets of the new fast and relatively flat course on what was a very humid and warm evening. From the start, the streets were lined with spectators and especially round the central part of the double loop route. Six members of Larne AC made the journey to Co Down and first home from the club was Sean McAllister in 45th place with an excellent time of 39:27, second was Thomas Morrow in 88th place with a time of 41:46 and third was Emmett Woods in 131st place with a time of 44.15. He was then followed by Mark Todd 45:20 (147th), Dom Dorris 45:51 (162nd) and completing the line-up was the only female Melissa Shields 57:58 (482nd). A big thanks to Ballydrain Harriers who put on a great spread at the end and which the guys thoroughly enjoyed!
