The third meet of firmus energy’s Fab 5 hailed another great success with more 150 athletes descending upon the Mary Peters Track on a rainy Thursday evening. Participants came from far and wide to take part in Northern Ireland’s most coveted athletic event.
Isaac Orr was awarded first place in the U11 Boys’ 100m race, finishing with an impressive time of 15.00. Isaac was closely followed to the podium by North Down athlete Isaac Hammond and Ronan Jenkins from St Anne’s athletics club.
Angeline Murphy, Marketing Manager at firmus energy, said:
“It is great to see such a wide range of sporting events taking place and it offers something for everyone, of all abilities and ages. firmus energy have been a proud sponsor of this event for a number of years and we hope that will continue into the future”.
John Glover from Lagan Valley Athletics Club, added:
“We are pleased to see the event continue to grow and adding some new disciplines has attracted even more participants. Seeing groups come from all over the region was particularly pleasing and we aim to continue to grow and attract athletes of all abilities from right across Northern Ireland. The next in the series takes place next Thursday, June 27th and I would encourage anyone who has an interest to come along and see what it’s all about”.
