Letterkenny AC Club Notes

March 2012

AFTER Maria McCambridge’s fantastic feat in reaching the qualifying time for the London Olympics Marathon our interest swelled further at the weekend when Brendan Boyce achieved the qualifying time for the 50k walk.

Brendan, made the qualification standard in Slovekia on Saturday at the European Athletics Race Walking Permit Meeting in Dudince.

Well done to Danny Mooney who ran a sub 15 minutes for a 5k in England. Preparations are also ongoing for the Easter Sunday 3k. The club is also organsing a 5mile run-fun walk on Wednesday, April 18. All runners-joggers and walkers are welcome. The entry fee is €5. Registration will be from Aura Leisure Centre and the race starts at 7pm. This will be ideal preparation for the North West 10k. For further information contact Brendan Mc Daid (086-8113947).

Lotto numbers drawn were 14, 16, 17 and 22. No winner. Danny Nelis c/o Glencar Inn matched three numbers and received 80 euro. This week's jackpot rises to 1,070 euro.
