Rushe races home in Tuam to celebrate 75th birthday

More than 450 runners completed Tuam AC’s 10th anniversary road race on Sunday which was won by Paddy Hamilton of Annadale Striders in Belfast with a storming finish.

Hamilton crossed the tape in 24:21 - some two and a half minutes ahead of runner-up Stephen McKeigue of Ferbane (26:56 ), while Fintan Hyland of GCH was third in 27.07.

The first Tuam AC runner to finish was M45 category winner Ian Egan in 29:14, and the first woman home was GCH’s Regina Casey in a dead-on 30 minutes. Second was Colette Tuohy and third Ann Lennon, both of Mayo AC.

A special mention must go to Tuam AC’s Roger Rushe, who just recently celebrated his 75th birthday and who came home in a fantastic 41:53.
