A crisp, clear and sunny St. Stephen’s morning brought the crowds out to the Ballon GFC Turkey Trot led by Operation Transformation’s Monica Percy and family.Just under 150 registered runners cum walkers were joined by their families and friends and in ┬ásome cases pets and all happily completed the 5 K at their own pace and leisure.The tea, coffee, hot chocolate and snacks in the clubhouse afterwards were very welcomed by all. Seamus English-Hayden was the 1st of the serious runners home in a time of 19 minutes 48 seconds and he was followed in 20 seconds later by John Brennan, Sraugh. All those who participated thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the wonderful friendly Xmas atmosphere which prevailed throughout.
