Omagh men claim top prizes at Galbally 5

OMAGH duo, Eoin Mullan and Ryan Pritchard were the winners of the five mile and five kilometre races, respectively, at Sunday’s Galbally 5 event.
 
Over 400 runners and walkers turned out for the annual event, which was supported by clubs from all over Ireland. 
It was run in tough conditions with temperatures reaching 25 or 26 degrees and no cloud cover making it much tougher than usual over the Galbally hills. 
 
Eoin Mullan from Omagh Harriers won the men’s 5 Mile and also broke the course record with an amazing time of 26:17minutes  with Louise Smith from North Belfast Harriers taking the female 5 Mile.
 
The atmosphere at the finish area was electric with live band ‘Brothers Inc’ (Ryan, after winning the 5K race, and Darren Pritchard) playing out some great tunes along with some great food and drink being served making this event even more special, one which will only get bigger next year.
 
A special thanks to Nicholas Griggs who carried out presentation duties.  Nicholas is the current 3000m U20 European champion.
