Inishowen AC hosted the annual Culdaff 5k road race on Friday, 18th May. The race was number four in the Donegal Grand Prix calendar. Star performer on the night was a visiting athlete from Kenya - Freddie Keron Sittuk - who finished 5th in the recent Belfast Marathon. Despite a strong headwind, the Kenyan showed his class from the gun, with only Cathal McLaughlin from Foyle Valley prepared to follow. By the 3k mark, Freddie was out in front and pushing for the finish line with the intention of setting a new course record. He did just that in a time of 15.09, followed by Cathal McLaughlin in 16.38. First of the Inishowen AC finishers was local athlete Martin Mooney, finishing 5th in 17.51, followed by Declan Donaghey, 7th in 18.00. Ever-improving club member, Sheila Doherty won her first Donegal Gran Prix race in a time of 22.09, with Patrica Doherty second in 22.46. Other prize winners were:

Humphrey Murphy M45 Letterkenny AC 17.48

Michael Collins M40 Inishowen AC 19.33
Patrica McLaughlin F35 Inishowen AC 22.46
