Victory at Ballybofey for Peter!
Peter Lilburn was once again in excellent form at Ballybofey on Friday night. Peter delivered a decisive performance to take pole position in the V60 category with a swift 18 mins 50 secs clocking leaving a string of youthful athletes in his wake. Interestingly, many of the much younger veterans are finding it difficult to come close to Peter’s times over both the 5km and 10km distances and his success is clearly down to hard work and total dedication, which is a fine example for our younger and indeed not so young athletes. Foyle Valley’s Michael Gallagher has been Peter’s constant companion throughout the plethora of races that make up the Donegal Gran Prix series and his 21mins clocking is indicative of a return to form for the unassuming athlete.
