North Down AC take over Crawfordsburn & Cross Country Awards, 13/05/23

Crawfordsburn Country Park was resplendent in North Down AC’s yellow and blue, with a dash of pink hi-viz, as club members took over parkrun on Saturday 13th May. Club members filled the volunteer roles and supported club members and everyone else who ran the free weekly 5k event through the scenic country park. PBs abounded as North Down members filled 9 of the top 10 finisher spots, with only finish token number 1 eluding a North Down member!

After parkrun and much needed coffee and scones, NDAC’s XC awards were distributed in the function room in the park’s visitor centre. A successful season of cross country running resulted in prizes for junior and senior athletes.
