SUNDAY 13th May saw over 250 people take to the roads around Lavey for Termoneeny Running Clubs’ 4th annual 10K road race and 5K fun run/walk.
This year the race was started on Quarry Road by Johnathan Crawford from Crawfords Supermarket in Maghera who sponsored all the goody bags for participants.
The banner marking the start of the race was signed by all the pupils of St Brigid’s Primary School, Mayogall and the pupils of Knockloughrim Primary School signed the finish banner to welcome the participants over the finish line.
