Adrian McGowan first home in annual Finn Harps FC fundraising 5k

On a beautiful evening in the Twin Towns, athletes, fun runners and Harps supporters gathered for the annual Finn Harps FC 5k on Thursday evening.

Harps haven't the best of records against Derry City over the years, so it was notable that it was a Derry athlete who took the honours in this race - Adrian McGowan leading the large field of runners home in a time of 16 minutes 45 seconds.

Gary Scully from Nenagh was second in 17.15 with Michael McGowan third in 18.21.

First female athlete home was  Niamh Ryan of Finn Valley AC in a time of 21.22.

Well done to everyone who took part. Here's a run-down on the finishers:
