Happy New Year to NI Running readers from the team and Gaithouse Events!
At Gaithouse we are continuing to plan and develop new running events and venues for the the fantastic running community in Northern Ireland, despite the current challenges we all find ourselves in. In the hope that things will return to normal this year, we would like to present the first few races of our 2021 race calendar, which are of course subject to change depending upon restrictions.
