Ballyhegan Davitts GAC hosted the inaugural "Ballyhegan Park n Stride" 10K Race on Saturday past, raising much needed funds for our club & of the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.

An excellent turn out of over 120 participants took part in the 10K race & 5K fun run / walk, creating a great atmosphere & buzz around the club.

Many local runners and footballers from the club turned up to compete against athletes from all over Ulster including Eglinton, Larne, Newcastle & Omagh.
