Comber 10k Road Race (Source NiRunning):
On Friday 16th June 2017, Ballydrain Harriers welcomed a record number of nearly 700 athletes to the 3rd annual running of their Comber 10k road race in County Down. This was the second year of the new flat and fast course, which athletes enjoyed. The race was also the eighth round of the ongoing Novosco 10k Grand Prix.
At the head of the pack, Newcastle AC’s David O’Flaherty and North Belfast Harriers’ Lindsay Gordon battled their way through the two lap route and ultimately, tested Ben Branagh’s course record of 32:16. In the end, it was David who emerged victorious, breaking the tape in 32:30 (1st place), with Lindsay following in 32:35 for 2nd place. In a close finish, Ben Morrow of Ballymena Runners saw off Paul Rowan (Willowfield Harriers) and Paul Carroll (Annadale Striders) to secured 3rd place in 34:10.
As expected, Amy Bulman (Willowfield Harriers) was the most impressive performer in the ladies’ race. The Northern Ireland international cross-country runner led the way in 37:07 (1st place). East Down AC’s Catherine O’Connor crossed the line in 39:14 for 2nd place, while in-form Susan Smyth (Dromore AC) recorded 39:26 for 3rd place.
Top 3 Men: 1st David O’Flaherty (Newcastle AC) – 32:30, 2nd Lindsay Gordon (North Belfast Harriers) – 32:35, 3rd Ben Morrow (Ballymena Runners) – 34:10
Top 3 Ladies: 1st Amy Bulman (Willowfield Harriers) – 37:07, 2nd Catherine O’Connor (East Down AC) – 39:14, 3rd Susan Smyth (Dromore AC) – 39:26
