first_imgDeclan Reed finally made it to the top of the pile at a windy Buncrana 5K on Wednesday night, notching his first win at the Inishowen venue.He was ahead by just three seconds from Spartans club mate Greg Roberts, 15m 10s to 15m 13s, with Finn Valley’s Barry Harron claiming third on 15m 27s.Natasha Adams of Letterkenny AC belied the conditions with an emphatic winning time of 16m 37s ahead of the Spartans duo Catherine Whoriskey who posted a 17m 48s PB and Jackie McMonagle on a gutsy 18m 57s.Close to 200 finishers were recorded at the popular 5K sponsored as ever by Sean Furey Insurances with runners from all the NW clubs joined on the start line by visitors from North Belfast Harriers, Ballymena Runners, Ballydrain Harriers, Springwell, Dromore and Lagan Valley among others.Reed was pushed all the way by club mate Roberts and only got away inside the final kilometre but he was delighted to add his name to the distinguished winners list at the prestigious Buncrana race. The swirling wind made really quick times difficult but the duel between the leading pair kept the spectators happy and Roberts fine run, just days before he toes the line in Sunday’s Walled City Marathon may raise expectations of the Spartan as he prepares to mix it with the Kenyan runners at the weekend.Natasha Adams ran just two seconds slower than her 2014 time, a brilliant effort in Wednesday’s conditions. She took full advantage of the absence of Teresa Doherty and Anne Marie McGlynn to post a very impressive win and demonstrate once again her genuine talent. Catherine Whoriskey smashed her PB , going under 18 minutes for the first time to announce her return to the big time podiums. Jackie McMonagle too had a good one and was very happy to claim a notable third place finish, her best ever in this race.AGE GROUP WINNERSLetterkenny’s Jane McGinley , fourth female finisher, was the top F35; Karen Cutliffe and Claire Connor of the Spartans were top F40 and F50 respectively; Ballydrain Harrier Debbie Matchett took the F45 award and Foyle Valley’s Catherine Moran and Dromore’s Mary Mackin grabbed the F55 and F60 wins. in the Male age groups Foyle Valley’s Roy McGilloway impressed again finishing just outside the top ten with a terrific 16m 08s,; Letterkenny’s Ivan Toner was the M35 winner and the Spartans pair of Dermot McElhinney and Colin Roberts topped the M40 and M45 categories. Newcomer McElhinney impressed many with a big PB of 16m 07s and could be one to watch.Two locals Tony Grant of Foyle Valley and the Spartans Peter Lilburn were the leading M55 and M60, Lilburn’s 19m 11s a good run. Two visitors Brian McKee, unattached, and Lagan Valley’s Desmond Brownlee took the M50 and M65 prizes and in the four to score team races Letterkenny pipped the City of Derry quartet of Catherine Whoriskey, Jackie McMonagle, Sarah Kivelehan who ran a 19m 17s PB and Janeen Leese. The male Spartans however did the business as Declan reed, Greg Roberts , Dermot McElhinney and Colin Roberts combined for the win ahead of Finn Valley.Place BIB Name Club Category Finish Time1 398
