Congratulations to all the Newcastle AC members who took part in the Irish Life Health National Cross Country Championships in Abbotstown over the weekend.

In the Senior Mens Race, Eoghan Totten was 16th, Zak Hanna 31st and Seamy Lynch 62nd. Well done everyone!

Podium Finish for Tom at the Run to Remember 5k

Over the weekend, Atlas Running held the second Run to Remember 5k in a very saturated Ballynahinch, with over 200 hardy souls taking part.

Tom Crudgington from Newcastle AC had a podium finish, coming third in a very commendable time of 19:26.

Despite the weather, the race and course was enjoyed by all. Well done to Tom and all the other participants who braved the elements!
