 Results: North Belfast Harriers and Annadale Striders take home the gold at Bangor 10K
Andrew Milligan (North Belfast Harriers) and Robyn McKee (Annadale Striders) won the top prizes at the 2023 John Minnis Estate Agents Bangor 10K on what was a record-breaking day for the run.

Organised by North Down Athletic Club and Ards and North Down Borough Council, the much-anticipated NI & Ulster Championship 10k event reached new heights with John Minnis Estate Agents on board as new principal sponsor.

Having recommenced for the first-time last year after a COVID induced break, the Bangor 10K saw almost 1000 entrants compete – a 25% increase from last year.

In what was a very strong field of top athletes, Andrew Milligan of North Belfast Harriers won the men’s race in a time of 30 minutes and 26 seconds, with Conor Bradley of City of Derry Spartans AC finishing second ahead of Conall McClean from St Malachys AC in third.

Robyn McKee of Annadale Striders took the honours in the women’s event, crossing the finishing line after 36 minutes 11 seconds. Dearbhla Cox, also Annadale Striders, was second, with Sarah McNutt (Lagan Valley AC) coming third.  

Jamie Stevenson, Chairperson from North Down Athletic Club, said:

“It was truly amazing to have such a strong participation rate at this year’s Bangor 10K having only recommenced last year following the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The support from John Minnis Estate Agents as our new principal sponsor has been instrumental in the success of this year’s race, where we were proud to see nearly 1000 runners cross the finish line.

“The Bangor 10k continues to attract some of the strongest athletes from across the country to compete and I would like to congratulate Andrew and Robyn on their respective victories.

“As well as the elite runners, we also had a number of fun runners taking part, all of whom enjoyed the scenic route along the coastal promenade.”

The 2023 Bangor 10K prize fund is in excess of £3,100.

John Minnis, Company Director at John Minnis Estate Agents said:

“As a dedicated supporter of local initiatives, we were thrilled to partner with North Down Athletic Club to back this exciting community event and promote positive health and well-being.

“Bangor is widely regarded as one of Northern Ireland’s most scenic locations, and the route for the Bangor 10K – which passes directly past our Bangor branch - does not disappoint.

“It was an incredible day for runners and spectators alike, and I would like to say a big well done to everyone that took part.

“We’re already looking forward to next year!”
