By Aideen O'Flaherty

OVER 150 people laced up their running shoes to take part in St Anne’s GAA Club’s annual fun run in Bohernabreena earlier this month. .

The longstanding highlight of the St Anne’s calendar sees runners zipping through roads around Bohernabreena, including some runners who brought their dogs along for some exercise too, with prizes across all categories for the fastest runners.

Stephen Murphy, the club’s public relations officer, told The Echo: “It was a great, fun day for all the family. It’s an annual event, and it gets bigger and better every year.

“Lots of young kids and their parents took part. It was a great day for all club members, and for non-members too.”

While the event is chiefly just for the enjoyment of it, some of the young runners showed their competitive nature and were determined to secure a medal or trophy at the end of the fun run.
