Termoneeny Running Club News week ending 6th October, 2019

It was a weekend of changeable weather but Termoneeny Running Club members embrace all elements and attended a variety of fixtures.  A notable achievement was accomplished by Tommy Hughes who won the Craigavon Lakes 3 Quarter Marathon.

Fermanagh Endurance Adventure Race

Running alone is challenging enough but the intensity certainly increases when it is interspersed with other activities.  This was exactly what Kevin Duggan took on when he completed the Fermanagh Endurance Adventure Race. Kevin finished the LONG race in 4:30:13. The course consisted of a 74K route of cycling, trail running and kayaking.  Well done Kevin on this terrific feat.
