Congratulations to Sligo AC members who competed in the very challenging "King Of The Hill" in Keash on Garland Sunday, This 10K took the athletes
to the top of Keash hill, to put it in perspective this climb is the equivalent of running the height of Knocknarea, Sligo AC's Richard Gorman finished second in a fantastic time of 36:30 which was a massive feat considering Richard won the Lough Arrow 8 mile road race the evening before, Friend of Sligo AC Derek Hunter finished in third in a super time of just under 40:00, and Sligo AC member Enda Dineen finished in a very strong fifth place in 43:00, congratulations to all showing great endurance in this very difficult race.
