Milford hosts 5k for Olympian Brendan
by @nationalist.ie @TheNationalist

As the countdown continues to Rio 2016, Brendan Boyce's home town of Milford did its bit to support his Olympic cause on Friday night.

The Milford Parish Community Games group organised a 5k for their Olympic walker and it proved a hugely successful event with a wonderful turn-out.

Brendan is a member of Letterkenny Athletic Club and it was his clubmate, Ciaran Doherty, who was first home in an impressive 15 minutes, 54 seconds.

Kevin Logue was second in 17.03 with Noel Diver of Rosses AC third in 17.13.

Milford AC's Gillian Marley was first female athlete in 20:26
