FLASHBACK…Prizewinners from the St Patrick’s Day race during the 1950s when the Logue Cup was up for grabs.

THE famed JB Logue Trophy has been resurrected for tomorrow’s St Patrick’s Day 5K race in Strabane, according to Chronicle columnist Brendan O’Donnell.

The prized silverware was first presented during the 1950s when the Bank Holiday event was a 10-mile race that attracted a host of household names.

Organisers have tracked down the famous old trophy and it is hoped it will be presented tomorrow as hundreds are expected to take to the streets of Strabane.

The race has an earlier start time of 10.15am to avoid traffic problems while a children’s race will take place on the running track at Melvin beforehand.

Registration up to 9.45am in Melvin.
