Freddie Keron made his second appearance in Inshowen in as many weeks for the Buncrana 5k. After his fast time in Culdaff, another good time was on the cards in Buncrana. With over 350 runners in attendance, a good night of racing was in store. With some elite athletes from clubs all over the northwest in attendance, there was a sense the Kenyan would not have an easy race ahead.

From the gun, Freddie took an early lead and by 1k was out on his own with only Scott Ranking following. Freddie showed his class, sprinting to the finish line in a new course record of 14 minutes 18 seconds, smashing the previous record of 14.40. Once again, Inishowen's yellow vests were out in numbers and continue to be fantastic supporters of the local road racing series - thirty members on the starting line in Buncrana. First of the finishers for Inishowen AC was Culdaff athlete, Martin Mooney, who seems to progress with every race. He ran to a new pb of 17.05, followed by Dwain Robb who is having an outstanding season on the road, finishing in 17.12. Other finishers on the nite were:
