The road racing season is certainly in full swing, with a multitude of races across the county to choose from, and the recent Dundalk 10k was the first race on the calendar for Boyne ACs senior athletes. Weeks of following thier training plan proved fruitful for the 12 athletes who ran, with many crossing the line in new PB times on a tough and at times windy route.

Nicola Veale ran well to finish in 50.39, and is determined to get under the 50 minute mark in her next race, with Timi Oluwabowale not far behind in 51.29. Karen Fairclough was all smiles as she crossed the line in 54.02, with Rebecca Carolan and Eimear Rickard crossing the line in 54.45 and Mairead Hallinan just behind in 54.46, delighted to get under the 55 minute mark for the first time. Jillian Connor was happy with her 54.38 time, as was Ola Raji who crossed the line in 57.23, while Jacqueline Reid had a good run to finish in 1.04.03.
