Derry Track Club’s Conan McCaughey impressed today with a podium finish at the Carrera de San Fulgencia 10k in Spain.
The Enniskillen man bounced back to form after the Laganside 10K where he was disappointed with his fourth place by finishing in runner-up spot for a testing and hilly route.
Conán’s time of 32:27 was excellent given the severity of the difficult two-lap course and the scorching temperatures.
“I’m delighted with second place in the Carrera de San Fulgencio 10k today! It’s been a while since I’ve been happy after a race but 32:27 over a hilly 2 loop course on a scorching Sunday morning, I’ll take that! The hospitality of the locals was incredible.
“It is a good confidence boost after disappointment of Laganside. I find always I run well in warm conditions, I can gauge and stay on the limit whilst others go over theirs, overheat and slow dramatically.”
