Les Jones Memorial 10K
On Friday 18th May two Larne AC runners Farther and son Brian and Jordon Heron joined capacity field home at the 27th annual Les Jones Memorial 10k (Friday 18th May 2018).
The Athletics NI hosted event is a popular annual fixture, organised in memory of late athlete, team manager and Athletics NI Chairman Les Jones, who sadly passed away in 1992.

A donation will be made to the charity from the race entries. The race started at the Mary Peters Track and took competitors onto the Lagan Towpath towards Shaw’s Bridge.
