This year's North West Charity 10k run and walk is being heralded as another great success.

Great numbers turned out and it was once again a real family and community occasion.

While some rain dampened spirits near the end for some runners and walkers, there was once again a great atmosphere.

The race was won by Eoghan McGinley of Rathfarnham AC, who hails from Kilmacrennan.

He crossed the line in 33 minutes and seven seconds. Having previously finished in second and third place, this was a particularly sweet win.

Natasha Adams of Letterkenny AC won the ladies race in 35 minutes and 21 seconds.

The President of the Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce Brian McCormick performed the official duty of starting the runners.

Mayor of the Letterkenny Municipal District Cllr Michael McBride got get the walkers underway from the Community Centre.

Although the final numbers are still being ratified, around 2,000 runners and walkers took part.

This was the 19th staging of the North West 10k, which has raised almost €700,000 for 30 charities. The four charities who will benefit from this year’s event are the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Donegal Down Syndrome Association, Blood Bike North West and the Donegal Youth Service.
