Ards 5 Mile Challenge Podium and Category

0
682

On Friday night Newtownards based running club Scrabo Striders hosted the Ards 5 Mile Challenge, in cloudy and warm conditions with only a drop of rain towards the end of the event.

Outbound along Portaferry Road is totally flat with great views of Strangford Lough, then the long steady climb up Finlays Road, a few more undulating hills along country roads before a welcome big downhill on the way back into town, finishing in Londonderry Park.

This race first started in 1982, organised by the charitable group the Ards Lions. Proceeds from the race has facilitated a £500 donation to both the Thriving Life Church Compassion Centre Newtownards Foodbank and Forget Me Not Focus Group.
