Hicks wins Bosco Drama Group 10k
The Bosco Drama group hosted a 5k and 10k race on Sunday morning, hoping to raise funds for their upcoming production of Footloose the musical. The race was by all means a success and at the time of press, it had raised just over £1000.
In the 10k race, Rostrevor man Andrew Hicks was first home in a blistering time of 34.12, Newry City Runner’s Gavin Crilly was second past the post in a fast time of 37.30 while St.Pat’s AC runner Neil Heaney took third place with a nippy time of 38.45.
In the women’s section, Helina Killen was first past the post in 52.08, Lisa Doyle grabbed second spot in 56.23 and Selena Brennan was third with a time of 56.24.
Ciaran McManus was the winner of the 5k race in 20.27, Brendan Heaney wasn’t far behind in 20.32 and Ashgrove Rover’s footballer Micky McShane took third spot in 22.11.
In the women’s 5k race, St.Pat’s AC trio of Amy White (24.09), Cliodhna Malone (24.53) and Ashlene McAnulty (25.16) were the first three home.
Afterwards, Chairperson of the Bosco Drama group Gerry Mulholland, Footloose director Jim McGuigan and race director Paddy Heaney presented the top three in each category with their awards.
Paddy Heaney was delighted with the turnout the race got and wished to thank everybody who helped make it happen.
He said,“I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Both races were well contested with worthy winners coming out on top.
“I’d like to thank all the people that showed up, the stewards, St John’s Ambulance, the parents of the Windmill Stars and St. Patrick’s Athletic Club members and also everyone at the Bosco for helping to make the day the success that it was.”
Footloose the musical runs from the 6th – 9th November in Newry City Hall at 7.30 pm each night. Tickets are priced at £8 and can be purchased from the Bosco Youth Club or at the Buttercrane Shopping Centre.
