Belfast Airport race
Sperrin Harriers had two athletes - Irwin Speirs and David O’Brien - in the Airport 5 miles in memory of Les Jones.
The race was run mostly in Victoria Park with about 1.5 mile outside the park so it looked like it was going to be a fast race, and as the race set off at a very fast pace it was top Kenyan Freddie Sittuk who was setting the pace with Brendan Teer East Down, Keith Purdy Annadale trying to stay with him.
David was running in the top 20 and Irwin not far behind him. David finished in 16th position and 1st O/50 in a time of 31-21, with Irwin finishing in a great time of 32-45
