Two Newcastle AC athletes (Ashley Crutchley and Ethan McMullan) were selected to represent Northern Ireland at the Senior Home Countries Mountain International in Glenshee, Scotland on Saturday 11th May. The Glas Tulaichean race is an uphill only race – a 7.2km run with 670m of ascent to the Munro summit (which stands at a height of 1,051m).

The conditions on the day were warm – similar to the weather back home and while the Slieve Donard race was underway the NI Team put on a strong performance to finish third men’s team with Ethan 1st U20. The race was won by Joe Steward (England 1st Male) and Scout Adkin (Scotland 1st Female) who both stormed to new course records of 31:52 and 38:33 respectively.
