Parkanaur 10 Mile Sperrin Harriers Winter Series

It was touch and go on Saturday morning as to whether this race might actually go ahead due to storm Dennis.  However nothing could dampen the spirits of two of our runners!  The course consisted of 4 loops of the forest to complete the 10 miles.  It was extremely wet underfoot and very windy during the race as can be seen by the pics! Helena Quinn even managed to take first lady position, home despite the awful conditions!

Results:

Helena Quinn 1:08.54

Tony Toner 1:12.48

Thanks to Sperrin harriers for their hospitality and another successful Winter Series.
