Purple Ladies 5k 2018:
On Wednesday 25th April 2018, nearly three hundred female athletes took on the annual Purple Ladies 5k road race in Ballymoney, an event hosted by Springwell Running Club.
The hosts’ own Ciara Toner (Springwell RC) took up a prominent position at the head of the field early on and despite the best efforts of talented Ballycastle Runners athlete Gemma McDonald, proved impossible to displace.
Ciara eventually ran out clear winner, clocking 18:05 (1st place) for the win. Podium regular Gemma followed in 18:55 for 2nd place, with multi-sport athlete Sonia Knox (Riada TC) taking 3rd place in 19:12.
Club mate Deborah Gilliland (Springwell RC) crossed the line in 19:26 for 4th place, with Veronica Nellins (Unattached) completing the top five in 19:51 (5th place).
