Hundreds of children from all the Letterkenny and neighbouring primary schools turned out to participate in the Letterkenny AC annual cross country event in the O'Donnell Park on Friday morning.

The children had to run in wet and mucky conditions which added to the fun as the sun shone down brightly on them. It was an excellent and well organised event. Well done to all involved.
