Travers leads the way, Flanagans inseparable: Results from Finn Valley AC 5k

Travers leads the way, Flanagans inseparable: Results from Finn Valley AC 5k

The field as Finn Valley AC’s St Stephen’s Day 5k made its return to the calendar.

Irish international athlete John Travers of Donore AC won the race in 14 minutes and 48 seconds.

Finn Valley AC’s Oisin Ó Gailín, home for a Christmas break from Wyoming University, was second in 15:05.

There is little to tell the identical Flanagan twins apart at the best of times - and not even a race could separate the Gortin girls. The Flanagans both crossed the line in 17 minutes and 21 seconds.

After the race, Finn Valley AC presented Eilish Flanagan with a special necklace to commemorate her participation at the Olympic Games in Tokyo earlier this year.

The presentation of the necklace, sourced from Cowpers Jewellers in Limerick, was made by Finn Valley  AC stalwart Catriona McGranaghan, who retuned as the fourth female in the race (19:13).

Omagh’s Niamh Heaney (18:25) was the third female while Finn Valley AC’s Shea Carlin was the third male finisher and fifth overall (17:30).

With 284 registered finishers, the event proved its usual success, bringing a real community spirit and festive cheer to the Millbrae. After the 2020 staging was cancelled due to a Covid-19 lockdown, club members and participants were delighted to get back to this popular annual event.

WBO world middleweight challenger Jason Quigley and Tyrone All-Ireland winner Ronan McNamee were among the other sports stars to take part in the event.

The first 200 finishers received special medallions to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Finn Valley AC.

Finn Valley AC’s St Stephen’s Day 5k was first held in 1977 and has attracted some of the world’s leading athletes with Mo Farah (2006) and Vivian Cheruiyot (2007) among the previous competitors.
