A festive looking Jonathan Hill from Sligo rounds the final bend on his way to fifth place in last Sunday’s Last Turkey in the Shop 5 Mile Road Race in Carrick-on-Shannon.

Despite wearing a very colourful and far from aerodynamic outfit, Jonathan covered the 5 mile hilly course in an impressive time of 29 mins 50 seconds to finish fifth overall. Proceeds from the event, which was won by North Leitrim Athletic Club’s Liam Feely in a time of 26 mins 34 seconds, go to nominated charity The Irish Cancer Society. 65 runners and walkers took part in the event which drew competitors from Sligo, Roscommon, Longford and Leitrim with full results on page 91 of this week’s Leitrim Observer.
