From Parkrun to Half Marathons, on and off-road, Termoneeny Runners have had yet another busy week!

It was an all-female representation at Parkrun this week! We had four ladies taking park on Saturday morning at Antrim parkrun, and we are delighted to see Clare Duggan back out running again and in super form! Well done to everyone.

Ecos Parkrun, Ballymena

In her first of two runs on Saturday, Kerry Archibald ran on Saturday’s Ecos Parkrun in Ballymena. Kerry finished in a super time of 25:33 at her first time at Ecos. Kerry then went on to run the 10k in Dungiven! Well done Kerry!

A word of thanks to everyone who gives up their time to volunteer at the various Parkruns across the country.

St Patrick’s Dungiven 5k/10K

There was a fantastic turnout later in the day from TRC runners to support the St. Patrick’s College Dungiven 5k and 10k. This was the 7th year for this popular event which this year chose to support Friends of Cancer as their charity. The weather was chilly but dry, so conditions were perfect to take on these undulating but pleasant courses. Michelle Comer was our first lady in the 5K and secured an impressive 4th female position. In the 10K Thomas Doherty was our first runner home and 4th overall with Michael Burke close behind in 7th place.  Thanks go to St. Patrick’s College for organising the event, and top class post-race hospitality.

The Streets of Ballyshannon 5K

Andy Campbell travelled to Ballyshannon on Saturday morning for the Streets of Ballyshannon 5k. This is Andy’s first run after a recent illness and he put in a fantastic run, finishing in a brilliant time of 28:52! Well done Andy – great to see you out racking up those winter league points again .

Northern Velocity Dog Leap Half Marathon

Huge congratulations to our six members who all completed the extremely challenging Northern Velocity Dog Leap Trail Half Marathon today with 3 laps around Roe Valley Country Park. This was a multi terrain course with lots of hills, steps, twists & turns, bridges (over and under!) to negotiate but the weather was favourable and everyone put in a sterling effort. Our first male home was Trevor Smyth and first female his wife Paula Smyth! Thanks go to Stephen and his team for a great event and super hospitality.
